How to Find and Remove Snakes in Your Yard

Snakes enter residential yards in search of food and shelter. The pests thrive on diets of rodents, like mice, rats, and chipmunks, which are often found in lawns or the cellars of homes. Unkempt yards are especially inviting for snakes as they use the cover of the tall grass to sneak up on their prey. Log and leaf piles, shrubbery, and the spaces under sheds and decks also provide the pests with ample protection. A trained eye can sometimes spot snake tracks in grass or mud near such areas.

Removal from Yard

Having snakes hang out in the tall grass of yards can be dangerous. The pests strike if they feel threatened, and the bites of venomous snakes can be deadly. To reduce the possibility of attracting the pests onto lawns, individuals should mow grass regularly, pick up piles of debris, trim back thick vegetation around building foundations, and stack firewood off the ground. Since the availability of rodents also draws snakes to private properties, individuals should take actions, like getting tightly fitted lids for outdoor trash bins and removing clutter from basements, to reduce rat and mouse populations.

While prevention methods are important, property owners may still encounter infestations of snakes in the grass. At the first sign of snake activity, individuals should contact trained wildlife experts to take care of the removal. The professionals at Critter Control keep house residents safe from deadly bites and offer advice on avoiding future infestations.

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!
