Have A Snake Problem In Your Crawl? What To Do

Juanita Douglas

If you can't get in or around your crawl space because there are snakes living around or inside it, its time to call for the pest control experts. You want to get rid of these reptiles and do so fast. Here are some of the things that you want to spring into action doing, so you can get rid of these pests from the property as quickly as possible.

Treat Around the House for Snakes

The pest control professionals will have to look around the exterior of the home for snake holes, and then set traps or lure the snakes out. Once they have been able to remove snakes from the holes, or treat the holes around the home, this can hopefully prevent the snakes from coming back and force them to relocate. It may take more than one time searching for the holes, and trying to find the homes of the snakes around your property.

Get Snakes Out of the Crawl

If there are snakes inside the crawl space, you want to have the professionals remove them. Even if they aren't poisonous, you don't want multiple snakes attacking you or harming you. Instead, have the pest control professionals get the snakes out of the crawl and relocate them to a different property or place far from your home.

Seal and Block the Crawl  

You want to seal and block the crawl space so this doesn't become a problem in the future. This includes:

  • Caulking all cracks that potential entryways for snakes
  • Have vents covered with screening so snakes cant slither through
  • Block the entrance of the crawl so you need to use tools to get in and out
  • Get a sump pump that doesn't allow pests to get in from outside

These are all things that will be very helpful to prevent this problem from reoccurring in the future at your home.

Talk with the pest control professional, such as from Fox Valley Environmental Pest Control, to find out why the snakes are lingering around your home and property. Ask if there is a specific rodent or insect problem that is attracting them to your house. The sooner you find out why they are there, the easier it will be to prevent them from wanting to return. You can use different types of chemicals and fencing after they are extracted to stop them from heading back around the house, and so they don't want to be around your property.

About Me
Flower Planting 101: Simplifying Your Planting Maps

One of the things that I always loved about spring as a kid was watching all of the flowers my mother planted suddenly come up from the ground and then bloom into vibrant, beautiful colors. When I bought my own house, one of the first things I wanted to do was plant flowers. What I didn't realize was how hard it could be to figure out what to plant where. From the sun demand to the companion planting guides, it was complicated. I created this site to help others just like me create the flower gardens they always wanted without the struggles that I faced.
