Dallas Snake Removal
Texas has an abundance of snakes, from venomous pit vipers like
copperheads or rattlers, to harmless snakes like rat snakes and garter
snakes. Many of these snakes live in urban or neighborhood settings in
the city of Dallas.
I have spent my career talking with hundreds of snake removal guys
throughout the USA, and I myself have personally trained close to 20 so
far. In the city of Dallas, I recommend Matt at A Wildlife Pro, who I know personally, and
who I trained. He can usually come out same-day, often very quickly, to
catch your unwanted snake(s).

I like this wildlife removal company, and I think they are your best bet
for snake control in Dallas. If he is not available, you can do a search
for a different Dallas snake removal company, but be sure you are
comfortable with their service and prices before you hire. Dallas snake
control is of course a specialty field, and not every expert in you hire
is the same - you don't want to hire a snake exterminator or pest
control company, but a specialty Texas wild animal removal professional.
Snake Tip: How to remove a snake from your house -
Before you attempt to remove a snake from your house, you need to identify the animal first. Do not assume that all snakes in the home are garter snakes. You cannot go on size alone. If there is any doubt in your mind about the species you are dealing with, contact a professional. Snake experts will be able to identify your snake quickly and before the animal is agitated enough to become problematic. Almost all snake bites occur because humans are trying to pick up of harass a snake. It is never from deliberate, seeking aggression. If you are positive that the snake is harmless, quietly walk through the room and barricade any openings under furniture that the reptile might try to wiggle under. Try to ignore the snake until you are ready to catch it. Even nonvenomous snakes will strike if they feel harassed. The easiest way to pick up a snake is with thick gloves or with a snake hook. Since most homeowners do not have snake-handling equipment, gloves are a good substitute. Try to get the snake into a pillowcase for transport as soon as possible.

Hi, I have seen photos of corn snakes and copper heads that look similar and others that look totally different. I am guessing they vary somewhat. We found a snake that looks a lot like photos of corn snakes with a design on its belly that looks like piano keys. Can you tell me what that could be? Thanks, Terry
David, I just wanted to say that photo of the big Garter snake on the site is the largest I have ever seen. I had no idea they could get that big. I wonder why we seem to only see much smaller ones. Probably in the urban environment it is because cats kill a lot of them before they can grow so large. Did you record measurements on that specimen? Jim
Good afternoon, The reason I am contacting you today is because my parents recently bought a farm house. It was a foreclosure so they didn't have a chance to meet the people. They have to do a ton of work on the house before they can move in. While my dad was up there cleaning up, he said he found a snake skin that was pretty big.. How big I really don't know.. While talking to some of the neighbors, my parents were told that there were exotic snakes kept in the house. I don't think anyone has lived in the house for 6 months to a year. The thing that has me worried is that my nephew will be there who is only 3 and the thought of something happening really bothers me. They have 26 acres with a creek in the back and 2 barns. Which I'm sure is the perfect place for a snake. Is there anything they can do to check for the snakes? What do you recommend? No one seems to know what really happens to the snakes. Now last winter it got really cold. Im sure exotic snakes are boas, pythons, etc.. Can those survive the winters? Any info you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. Mandy
