Each year there are 7,000 to 8,000 people who suffer from venomous snake bites with five people dying.
You may be the lucky homeowner who only has non-venomous snakes around your property. Even if that is the case, I am sure you do not want these guys slithering around or inside your home. To avoid ever having to deal with snakes yourself, you should call a professional to manage your snake problems. The following are reasons why calling a professional would benefit you:
Homeowners often take care of snakes themselves, but this is a dangerous idea. It is unsafe because homeowners are not snake experts, so they can easily put themselves in harm’s way. There is the possibility that you may think a snake is non-venomous when it is not.
Professionals, on the other hand, have extensive experience dealing with snakes and can catch warning signs if and when they attempt to strike.
Protect Your Pets
Another great reason why you should call a professional is because it will not only protect yourself but also your pets.
Most pets, such as cats and dogs, are curious creatures and so it is likely they will investigate the snake. For example, they may try to kill it. If the snake is venomous, your pet could be in serious danger or even a life-threatening situation.
Professionals Have Resources
Similarly, to protect yourself and your pets, professionals have the experience, knowledge and tools for successful snake control. Along with knowing where snakes like to nest, professionals have tools such as glue traps, live traps and other repellent products. All of these things make it so the snakes are less likely to return. If you attempt to control snakes on your own, it is likely you will not have as much success.
It is best to leave the snake trapping or exterminating to those who know what they are doing. By doing so, you can protect yourself, your family, and your pets.
