Houston 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 Houston.
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 Houston, I recommend Chad at Masters Wildlife, 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 Houston. If he is not available, you can do a search
for a different Houston snake removal company, but be sure you are
comfortable with their service and prices before you hire. Houston 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 get snakes out of your house -
Snakes inside your home can be challenging to remove because they are scared and trying to find a way out themselves. A snake does not want to live in your home. Most end up inside by accident, or because they live in a crack within your foundation. Make sure you go along the exterior of you home and fill and any areas that may have allowed a snake inside. Now that the snake is in the home it must be identified. You do not want to handle a venomous snake. Most life-threatening bites happen because someone was attempting to pick up a viper. If the snake is venomous, or if you are unsure, call a professional to come and retrieve the animal. Making the attempt on your own is not worth the risk of getting bit. Even if the snake is not venomous, bites can bleed excessively and be prone to infection. More docile snakes can be picked up using thick gloves or a snake hook. No matter what tool you use, try to get the snake into a pillowcase as soon as possible. The snake will not attempt to strike at you through the bag. These animals are very visual, and being inside of the pillowcase will have a calming effect on them.
Houston Reader Emails:
To Whom it may concern, live in Houston, Texas a part that has been built up a bit for over 6 years. This past few months I have been warned about water moccisons in our area and until today I had never seen one. Anyway my 8 year old walker hound found one right near our back patio today. I called our local police dept for them to get rid of it which they did kill it for me since we I have 5 kids always playing in the yard and for the safety of the kids it was best however I can not be 100% sure my dog was not bit I have looked him over and seen no fang marks. Do I have anything to fear that he could of been hurt by the snake and I am not seeing the bite? I know that the rest of the snake family lives down the road is there anything I can use around my home and yard to protect my kids and dog from other snakes. I know that were I live is a small area and my police dept have many other things to do other then chase snakes, but is there a way to trap these snakes and get them away from homes for the sake of all the young children in the area. Also do they feed on cats by chance because we have many stray cats and kittens and we being a small town do not have local animal control to capture these cats and kittens and get rid of them, so I was wondering if the snakes are eating the cats and that is why the snakes are coming closer to homes and not staying in the woods. I need to have my house searched I have removed several snakes already and want a professional to come tomorrow. I hate snakes and want them out of my house asap. Please contact me immediately. Thank you, Elizabeth
