Why are snakes in my yard or home ?
Snakes go where their food source is, such as: Mice , Rats , Birds , Fish , Frogs , etc... and where they can nest and hide.
If snakes smell mice in your garage , attic , home or business, they will enter through the same entry points to find them.
The best way to control snakes is to correct the habitat on your property and start with preventive maintenance , such as : *Remove debris piles,
*Move fire wood pile onto a rack away from your home,
*Keep weeds and grasses mowed.
*Have your home or business inspected by a professional for mice especially in the attic, and have all snake entry points sealed up.
What if I get bit by a snake :
If you think it was a poisonous (venomous) snake and their are two large puncture marks, remember what the snake looked like.
