Snake Removal: How to Keep These Reptiles Off Your Property, Miami, Ohio

Even if you live in a heavily populated area, snakes can easily find their way onto your property and into your home. While the majority of the 25 snake species in Ohio aren't venomous, they still pose a danger to your family and pets. To help you eliminate a problem before it begins, the snake removal specialists at A.S.A.P. Critter People offer these three tips.

3 Expert Tips for Preventing an Infestation From Ohio's Snake Removal Specialists

1. Seal Up Holes & Cracks

The worst possible place on your property for a snake to invade is your home. Once they get inside, it can be hard to make sure they're gone because they can hide inside the walls and under the floorboards. Stop this from happening by sealing up holes and cracks on the exterior of your home. Immature snakes can fit into extremely small spaces, so inspect and fill in even the smallest openings with a durable, long-lasting sealant.

2. Maintain a Clutter-Free Yard

Debris and unused items lying around your yard are the perfect places for snakes to hunt and create their home. Avoid an infestation by removing all unnecessary clutter and keeping your foliage well maintained.

3. Eliminate Food Sources

One of the most common reasons snakes enter a property is food. Different species and sizes eat different things. Some prefer insects like grasshoppers, while larger snakes typically opt for mice and rats. You can keep them out by removing their food source from your property. To achieve this feat, you may need to contact an animal removal service that can relocate any wildlife and enhance your property's protections.
