Orlando Snake Removal

Florida 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 Orlando.

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 Orlando, I recommend Ben Cassan 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 Orlando. If he is not available, you can do a search for a different Orlando snake removal company, but be sure you are comfortable with their service and prices before you hire. Orlando 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 Florida wild animal removal professional.

Snake Tip: How to get rid of snakes around your house - You should not be worried about the occasional snake sighting around your home. Snakes eat insects, amphibians, and rodents. It is often beneficial to have a snake wander through every once and a while. If you feel that snakes have decided to stay in your yard, and you are seeing them frequently enough to warrant removal, there are a few choices to accomplish that goal. First, you can hire a professional. The expert will remove the snakes and recommend that you evaluate your property structure. The vegetation and debris around your yard is ultimately what makes a snake want to stay. Stone fences, woodpiles, and cracked patios are all ideal snake den sites. Prevention means keeping these areas cleaned up and sealed. Thick vegetation, be it tall grass or lush gardens, will also be your enemy. If you do not want to hire a professional, you can purchase some snake traps. There are some good models on the market, and they will allow for humane capture and release of any snakes within. Keep in mind that a snake trap will not always be effective if you saw a snake once outside. Snakes can be transient, and that is why you should not be alarmed by the occasional sighting.

Orlando Reader Emails:
I tried calling Orlando animal country today but was unable to get through. Perhaps you can help, or point me in the right direction. There are some folks on YouTube posting atrocious animal cruelty videos. In the only one I watched, there is a teenager who picks up a snake by the tail (looks to be a rat snake) and smashes its head by swinging it around and hitting it on the sidewalk. Of the other videos I could not watch, there are titles like 'how to kill a snake' and 'rattlesnake blown up by fireworks.' I would like charges to be brought against these teens so they might understand how wrong they are and the importance of all life. If behavior like this isn't curbed early, these guys could move on to other animals and even people. Please let me know if you can do something or if I need to get in contact with someone else. Thanks so much for your time

It is very possible I have a snake in my basement. I have found a piece of shedding. I do not know how long it has been there an I do not know if it is in the house or not. All I know is that it has been in the house. I do not know what type it is but I know I need help in locating it if it is in here. Please reply to my email but I would prefer you to call me and speak with me about this matter. You may call me Terri. The sooner the better please.
