 Snake Are Predictable Until You Step On One

This is the perfect time of year for people to cross paths with snakes in Florida. It has been extra hot, we’ve had a lot of extra rain lately, and there is always more construction during the warmer months. All of these things can combine to cause snakes to move around more during the day.

They may be looking for relief:

  • from the heat
  • from the wet conditions
  • moving to wetter conditions to cool down.
  • construction projects may also cause the snakes to look for a more stable place to hide.

Avoid The Snake Encounter

What ever the reason, they are more likely to encounter human interaction. Aside from the unfortunate little girl in Central Florida killed by a family pet python, there have also been at least 3, possibly 4 snake bite victims in Florida, in just the last few weeks. All of these were reportedly rattlesnake bites. The latest was a child.

If you encounter snakes on your property, don’t take any chances. Call an expert to remove the serpent before there is a tragic event with your pets or family. Call Nuisance Wildlife Removal of Florida at 866-263-WILD.

Our expert wildlife technicians will find and trap or capture the snake, determine whether it is poisonous, and either relocate it or euthanize it after that determination.

Don’t take chances with the well being of your family.
