SNAKE CONTROL

About Snakes

Snakes, like crocodiles and lizards, are legless reptiles. Their bodies are covered in scales, and they can swallow animals much larger than their heads.

The majority of snakes are fearful creatures who avoid human contact. They will only attack if they are cornered or provoked; most of the time, they will attack to defend themselves.

However, snakes have been reported in building compounds, and if you come across one, it is strongly advised that you contact the Fire or Wildlife Department for assistance.

Problems due to Snake infestation:

1. Snakes bite either to capture prey or for self-defense. But since there are so many different types of snakes — including both venomous and non-venomous. Rattle Snakes venoms can kill even people even within 10 minutes.
2. Common conditions of pet snakes include infectious stomatitis (mouth rot), parasites (including cryptosporidiosis), skin infections, inclusion body disease, respiratory disease, and septicemia.
3. Snakes do kill, destroy and eat the birds, poultry farms chickens and even the eggs creating a loss in business.

Types of Venomous Snake Bites

The danger from snake bites and the toxicity of venom varies from species to species. The recommended first aid for snake bites will also vary according to species.
Treatment for a snake bite is defined according to whether the venom is cytotoxic, hemotoxic or neurotoxic. A wrong treatment will not only be of little or no help but could

Do's and Don'ts of Treating Snake Bite

Do:

• Try to identify whether the snake bite is venomous by observing at the snake’s appearance (such as the shape of snake head, colour and size) and its attacking method.
• Loosen the victim’s clothing and move them in to the shade.
• Keep the victim calm and still; movement will increase blood flow and transport the venom to the heart much faster.
• Immobilise the limb but do NOT restrict blood flow unless you are certain the bite is from a snake that delivers neurotoxic venom.
• Clean and dress the wound being careful not to apply pressure and cause bruising.
• Be prepared to administer CPR if necessary.
• Get the victim to a hospital as soon as possible.

Do Not:

While there can be differences of opinion as to what we should do for snake bites the consensus of opinion as to what not to do is reasonably consistent,:
• Allow the victim to exercise or stress themselves.
• Cut the bite or attempt to suck the venom out.
• Give the victim anything to eat or drink especially alcohol.
• Use potassium permanganate crystals or solution near or on the bite wound.
• Use soapy water round the bite wound.
• Leave pressure bandages on too long.
• Leave the victim alone.
• Apply ice to the wound.

Signs of Snake infestation:

While spotting snakes is the most obvious way to determine if you have a snake problem, finding evidence of snakes isn’t always easy, especially in winter, when the creature may nest inside your walls to protect itself from the cold. Snakes, unlike mice and rats, do not leave a trail of destruction. Once inside your home, they frequently remain hidden for months. However, there are some warning signs you can look for in your home:

1. Snake skin:

As they grow, many snakes shed their skin. The dry, scaly skin could be in a whole sheet or in a crumpled heap near an entrance into your home's walls.

2. Slither tracks:

When inspecting a dusty area or crawlspace, you may notice tracks that indicate where a snake has passed.

3. Odor:

A lot of snakes have a distinct odor. If you notice a strange odor in a crawlspace or other area that wasn't there before, it could be a sign of a snake problem.

4. Droppings:

Snake droppings can easily identify. They very often resemble bird feces, but they may also contain hair and bones from their prey.

5. There are certain places where snakes may like to hide on your property:

• Secluded open land, field or bush area.
• Garden with ponds, wood, rock or rubble piling around.
• Garden with un-trimmed long grass.
• Reptiles are timid and will usually flee to seek cover if they are detected by people or pets.

Some proven methods to avoid Snakes form entering your property

Although there are several methods that can help us to keep snakes off your property, we will mention a few of them which are highly effective.

1. Cut your grass at a regular interval of time:

It is a very basic thing that most people avoid. Snakes like tall grass so they can easily hide behind the blades. It provides the right cover for hunting and keeps them protected from predators. Keep your tall grass trimmed on a regular basis, and snakes will be more likely to look for other areas in which they’re not as exposed.

2. Secure the perimeter of your house:

This can be the main issue with having snakes in your yard. It is that they can find their way into your house, and nobody wants that. To keep dangerous snakes out of the home, you will want to inspect the perimeter of your house and other freestanding buildings, like abandoned garage or sheds, regularly to make sure there aren’t any cracks or holes snakes could enter through. Make sure to check that the basement windows are properly closed.

3. Keep your yard clean:

This reptile likes clutter for many reasons. First, it provides them with a good spot to hide from predators. Second, they are reptiles, so they require warmth to survive. Clutter, like compost piles of wood, can make a cozy environment that protects snakes from the elements. Look for other options that are less attractive to the snakes.

4. Gather some information about the snake species:

Reading about the snakes that are local to your region provides you with a better understanding of what their habitat could look like. Once you fully understand what conditions create the ideal environment for different snake species, you can protect your yard from the elements that make it snake heaven.

Snake Control FAQ's

You can take measures to reduce the attractiveness of your yard or house to snakes. If you have a rock wall or other structure that has the potential to house frogs and rats, and in turn attract snakes, discourage these animals by blocking holes. Avoid creating habitat for snakes by keeping a tidy, well-maintained yard and shed. Actively discourage rats and mice, and snake-proof your aviaries and poultry pens.
Most snakes have the potential to bite a human, but will generally only bite as a last resort. Not all snake bites are harmful. Pythons do not have venom and colubrids (rear-fanged snakes) either have a weak venom or lack venom altogether. Bites from venomous elapids (front-fanged snakes) should be taken seriously and treated appropriately. Read more about avoiding and treating https://www.xpertspestcontrol.com/snake-control/
