San Antonio 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 San Antonio.
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 San Antonio, I recommend Lenny at TruTech, 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 San Antonio. If he is not available, you can do a search
for a different San Antonio snake removal company, but be sure you are
comfortable with their service and prices before you hire. San Antonio 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 rid of rattlesnakes - If you live in an area where rattlesnakes are indigenous, such as San Antonio TX, you need to accept the fact that you will never be free of them. Living in regions with rattlers means a change in lifestyle and habit. No more walking through the woods and carelessly stepping over a log. You need to be aware at all times, and you need to understand the behavior patterns of the snakes. And if you hear a snake rattle—get away from it! Despite what the movies would have you believe, backing away from a rattle snake that is rattling is an acceptable safety precaution. The snake will not randomly strike at you unless you continue to make it feel threatened. The best you can hope for when living in rattlesnake territory is to keep the animals off your property as much as possible. This means no thick vegetation and not debris. You will find that most homeowners in rattler zones have modified how they keep wood piles and fences. Grass needs to be short. Large birds of prey will eat snakes, and even a rattlesnake does not want to cross a long expanse of short grass. Gardens, if you insist on having them, need to be fenced in with a fence that is flush to the ground or extends into the soil a few inches.

Hey David, thanks for writing and the comment on the snake site. I have a lot of work to do on it still, but with only another couple of months to actually do much work, I opted to get it up fast. No problem on the listing, I assumed as much and just thought I'd write and see anyway. Congrats on building such a network, the snake stuff is pretty impressive. I've actually seen your blog many times in the last year or two just out looking for snake photos and whatnot. Also thanks for the advice on the pricing. I've got to find some way to draw some limits on service areas. San Antonio metro area is very spread out and it takes over 2 hours to drive from the extreme North side to the Southern extent without any traffic ... that's half my day for one call. Right now I'm just in "get some calls" mode, and plan on raising prices to throttle once some of my marketing efforts take off. I think a static price is the way to go, and I like the flat price for snake removal suggestion. Thanks again, and I'll be checking out those traps. By the way, I see that photo of the tonged gartersnake EVERYWHERE, haha. Bryan
Good morning my name is Sherina and I'm contacting you on behalf of my sibling who resides in San Antonio city, Texas. we created a memorial garden in back of my sister mobile home and she contacted me yesterday stating she saw two balck racer snakes go under her mobile home. My concern is that she has two children aged 1 and 2 who could possibly be harmed by these animals. Can you please contact her and discuss possible ways to get rid of these animals without harming them. Thank so very much for taking the time to read my inquiry. Here contact information is below.
