Frequently Asked Questions

((These are both frequently asked questions and common search engine queries))

Q: Do you provide Snake trapping services?

A:  According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, regulations on venomous and non-venomous snakes are as follows:

  • It is illegal to trap or take any non-venomous snake in Georgia. All non-venomous snakes are protected in Georgia and cannot be killed, captured, or removed from their natural habitat except when they pose a threat to human safety. Anyone who handles or removes venomous snakes in Georgia must have the appropriate permits and licenses. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources recommends contacting a professional wildlife control company or the department’s wildlife resources division for assistance in handling and removing venomous snakes.

These regulations are in place to protect the natural habitat and biodiversity of Georgia’s wildlife, including both venomous and non-venomous snakes. It is important to adhere to these regulations and seek professional assistance when dealing with wildlife, especially venomous snakes, to ensure the safety of both humans and animals.

Q: How does snake repellent work?

A:  Snake repellents are a popular choice for homeowners who want to keep snakes away from their property. But do they actually work? The short answer is yes, snake repellents can be effective in deterring snakes from entering your property. However, it’s important to note that not all snake repellents are created equal. Nor is the efficacy solely dependent on type of repellent but also weighs on how it is laid, where it is laid and were snakes removed during the process.

There are two types of snake repellents: chemical and natural. Chemical repellents usually contain naphthalene, sulfur, or other strong-smelling chemicals that snakes find offensive. These repellents work by emitting an odor that snakes find unpleasant, causing them to avoid the treated area. However, Naphthalene can be harmful to pets and children, and they may not be effective in all situations.

Natural snake repellents, on the other hand, use plant extracts or essential oils that snakes find offensive. For example, cedar oil and cinnamon oil have been shown to be effective at repelling snakes. These natural repellents are safer for pets and children and can be just as effective as chemical repellents.

When it comes to snake control and removal, it’s important to work with a professional who has experience in dealing with snakes. Snake control businesses can provide a range of services, including inspecting your property for potential snake entry points, removing any snakes that are already present, and providing recommendations for long-term snake control.

Q: How to keep snakes away?

A:  Georgia is home to a variety of snake species, including venomous ones such as copperheads and rattlesnakes. If you want to keep snakes off your property in Georgia, here are some tips that may help.

First, keep your lawn and yard tidy. Tall grass, piles of leaves or debris, and overgrown shrubs can provide shelter for snakes. Keep your lawn mowed and remove any debris from your yard to make it less attractive to snakes.

Second, seal any gaps or cracks in your home. Snakes can enter your home through small openings, such as gaps in the foundation or cracks in the walls. Seal these openings to prevent snakes from entering your home.

Third, use snake repellents. As mentioned earlier, we can come and lay snake repellent that is safe for kids & pets which lasts for up to 3 months. When combined with habitat modifications mentioned here it is the most powerful means of reducing the snake population in your yard.

Fourth, remove any potential food sources. Snakes are attracted to rodents, insects, and other small prey. Eliminate potential food sources by keeping your garbage cans sealed, removing any fallen fruit from trees, and storing firewood away from your home.

Q: Do mothballs work for repelling snakes?

A. Mothballs are commonly believed to be an effective way to repel snakes. However, it’s important to note that the active ingredient in most mothballs is naphthalene, which can convert to a toxic gas when exposed to air. This gas can cause serious health risks, including headaches, nausea, and even cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), exposure to high levels of naphthalene can be particularly dangerous for young children and pregnant women. Therefore, it’s crucial to weigh the potential benefits of using mothballs against the potential risks to your health and that of your family.

Q: Plants that keep snakes away?

A: Many people wonder if there are any plants that can repel snakes and keep them away from their homes or gardens. While no plant can guarantee complete snake deterrence, some have been known to have a repellent effect on these slithering creatures. Some of the plants that are said to have snake-repelling properties include marigolds, lemongrass, wormwood, and garlic. These plants contain certain compounds and scents that are believed to repel snakes, making them less likely to enter your property. While planting these plants may not guarantee complete snake deterrence, it can be an effective natural method to keep snakes at bay. Additionally, it is important to remember that maintaining a clean and tidy yard can also help reduce the likelihood of snakes making their way onto your property. The Wildlife Tech that visits your yard to remove any snakes will also provide you with a checklist of snake habitat modifications, which will help you to keep snakes out of your yard.

Q: Is there a snake pest control service?

A:  While there are a variety of pesticides available to control different types of pests, there is absolutely no single pesticide that is specifically formulated to kill snakes. In fact, most pesticides are not effective against snakes due to their unique physiology and behavior. While you are weighing what sounds like a desperate decision, understand that non-venomous snakes they are protected by the state’s Wildlife Resources Division. Fines for killing or harming these snakes could range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the severity of the offense. Instead, of getting yourself into a financial and legal mess… the most effective way to control snake populations is through habitat modification, exclusion methods, and humane relocation.
