Land O' Lakes wildlife control tip of the month:
I have a snake living beneath my house. I am considering trapping it. I am trying to get over my fear of picking up
the silly trap once the snake has entered. I have serious Land O' Lakes animal control doubts that I could open the box, spray the snake with oil
to release it. I don't have the heart to allow it to die such a horrible death by leaving it in the trap. I am hoping
someone on your team would be able to help me identify this Land O' Lakes animal control snake. If it isn't a poisonous snake, I might even learn
to appreciate the benefits that snakes bring.
I do have some decent pictures of the snake. I didn't include them in this email, as I would rather
have permission to send an attachment before taking such Land O' Lakes pest control liberties. The snake is small in diameter. I
have never seen the full length, so I don't know how long it is. Pics make it look considerably bigger though.
I got two head shots, but still unable to tell if it has a Land O' Lakes pest control pit between it's eyes. The markings resemble a pit viper, but
looking through web pics of rattle snakes, they were all so much bigger than this snake, it was hard to make a distinction.
The color is grayish, with black markings, it has a slight Land O' Lakes pest control reddish brown color mixed in as well. This color was hard to see
as I was simply too afraid to get any closer. I used the zoom function on my camera to get what pics I did take.
This snake frequently pops his head out from beneath my house onto my patio. I think it is getting insects.
I have siding on my house, and one head shot was taken from my Land O' Lakes wildlife removal kitchen window. The snake was slithering up
the siding, as if coming to get me. I popped my head out of the window to get the shot. Seriously, it looked
at me as you would be able to see in the picture. Once it started up the siding, I went outside and took the
rest of the pics. The snake didn't even seem to mind me being Land O' Lakes wildlife removal there. It wasn't spooked, not even by my dogs.
This behavior doesn't sound compliant to rattlesnake behavior?
I'm in Central Florida. A small rural area. We have had extreme heat with no rain and I have spotted more snakes closer
to my house than ever before. I live in a wooded area, so snakes Land O' Lakes animal trapping are expected and appreciated here, but this one frightens
me, as it just doesn't seem to want to move on. The others I have spotted near my patio have never been seen again. This
one seems to stay in the same spot, except for the times I Land O' Lakes animal trapping go out and he has his upper half of his body stretched out on the patio,
If anyone on your staff can identify this snake for me by the description, the habits and the pictures, please e-mail
me with your permission to send you the photos. Thanks in advance for ANY advice. Sincerely, Theresa
PS: This matter is so important to me. I have spent 8 years here and hve enjoyed my patio every night since I
had it built. I haven't set out there for nearly Land O' Lakes exterminator a week now. So this is really affecting my lifestyle. :o(
Definitely not venomous. Looks like a Rat Snake for sure. It's not on this list as pictured. But juvenile
snakes can differ in color and pattern a great Land O' Lakes exterminator deal from adults. I think it's a juvenile rat snake.
