Snakes are abundant in Central Florida. Most are harmless, but 6 species found in Florida are venomous; and because snake identification is not easy, all snake bites must be treated with great urgency.

Most snake jobs involve removing a snake that has entered a building. Occasionally, a home owner will call with a large nest of snakes on the property and even rarer, snakes can get into the attic.

Wildlife Patrol removes snakes by hand, tongs, or snake traps and uses proven repellants to decrease snake activity on your property.

To stop this, a barrier is created to prevent animals from crawling underneath the structure. Trapping is done beforehand to insure the space is clear of animals before the barrier is constructed. The barrier is typically drilled into the structure and then buried 12-18 inches into the ground to prevent armadillos and opossum from tunneling underneath it.

  • Poisonous snakes usually have a diamond-shaped head, but it is hard for the amateur to distinguish or use this feature.
  • Copperheads are the ONLY recorded poisonous snake in Mecklenburg. They are a two-toned copper color and vary in length from 6 inches to 3  feet. Copperhead young are born live, NOT from eggs. They occur in wet and dry areas. Don't confuse the copperhead with the non-poisonous corn snake which looks similar. The corn snake is orange banded, rather than copper banded, and the corn snake does not have a diamond shaped head.
  • Snake bites in our area are usually not fatal. Seek medical attention immediately, including pets. 
  • Many non-poisonous water snakes also have a diamond-shaped head.  In water areas, there will always be snakes.  It is best to leave them alone.
  • Again, the # 1 cause of poisonous snake bites are from people who pick up the recently severed head !

Was That Snake Dangerous? For some help identifying the four basic types of venomous snake found in North America, read this article: Beware of Snake: Knowing for sure which ones are dangerous. Keep in mind that most snakes are harmless to humans. Some kinds of snakes are docile and rarely bite even if picked up, but some will hiss, strike, puff up, spray foul smelling musk or even play dead in order to defend themselves against big, scary predators - like humans, for instance. Four kinds of snakes in the United States are dangerous to humans - rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, copperheads and coral snakes. Here are some photos of these venomous snakes.

Central Florida has four species of venomous snakes - cottonmouths, coral snakes, pygmy rattlesnakes and Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes. Copperheads and canebrake (timber) rattlers only occur at the extreme North end of the state.

I Caught It! If you have a snake trapped or cornered where it cannot get away, now is the time to call Snake Getters and ask for a volunteer to come and pick the animal up. Click here for a list of volunteers' phone numbers to call for emergency snake pickups. We will treat the snakes in a humane manner, placing them in good homes either with qualified individuals or with zoos and other educational or research facilities. If your snake is successfully placed in one of the local attractions we cooperate with, you may be offered free tickets as a thank-you.

I Keep Seeing Snakes! If you have a recurring snake problem, maybe we can help by hooking you up to some avid snake collectors from your local herpetological society. You give permission for them to collect on your land, and they remove the snakes so that you don't have to see them again. Click here to request a visit from snake collectors.

Keep in mind that most of the snakes you will see are not harmful and can simply be left alone unless you are very afraid of snakes and want them removed. However, if you remove that king snake or black racer or indigo snake from your backyard, you actually increase your chances of a venomous snake moving in. Those snakes (and some others) eat venomous snakes, and you are lucky indeed to have one of these scaly guardians living on your property.

Some Snakes Are Dangerous It is a very bad idea to approach or attack a venomous snake. From 60% to 80% of all venomous snakebites happen because someone tried to kill or catch a venomous snake. Zero percent of bites happen when the person moves away from the snake and leaves it alone. The smartest thing to do is to move away from a venomous snake, or from any snake you cannot identify. It is illegal to kill some types of snakes, as well as dangerous. You should simply move away and phone a qualified snake handler to remove the animal.

But I Need To Move This Snake NOW! If you feel you absolutely must remove or contain the snake right now, click here to learn some safer snake removal techniques. Remember, we do not recommend that you approach or handle venomous or unknown snakes by yourself without the help of an expert.
