How Snakes Get into Bathrooms
Given that they're cool and damp, bathrooms are ideal nesting locations for snakes. The pests easily gain entrance to homes via cracks and gaps in building foundations or siding. Sometimes they get inside through windows or doors that have been left open. Once they've infiltrated homes, snakes maneuver through vents, ducts, and wall voids to reach bathrooms. Since the pests are capable of swimming upwards, holding their breath for a long time, and squeezing through tight spaces like toilet drains, they sometimes break directly into bathrooms by way of toilets.
Why They're Attracted to Bathrooms
Since snakes are coldblooded and cannot regulate their own body temperature, they seek out cold spaces during warm summer months. Bathrooms are not only cool, but also provide the pests with darkness and moisture. Some of their favorite resting areas include underneath sinks, inside or around toilets, and in tubs. Bathrooms with populations of insects or rodents are even more appealing to snakes, as these are some common sources of food.
How to Remove Snakes from Your Bathroom
Homeowners can take precautionary measures to reduce the possibility of attracting snakes inside. For example, all openings on the exterior of homes larger than 1/4 of an inch should be sealed. If snakes are found in bathrooms, it is essential to contact pest control specialists immediately. Snake bites can be deadly, so individuals should never attempt to capture or handle the pests. Trained experts at Critter Control utilize their experience and equipment to eliminate infestations.

Best Bat Removal
Brandon was out to please and make out lives easier with out bat situation. Above and beyond of the call of duty and got the job done. Thank you!
BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa
Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.
Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.
Because bat droppings
can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic
On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.
He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
