Professional West Virginia Snake Control Services
Snakes do not cause property damage, but they can attack and bite humans and pets when provoked, which can cause extreme pain and even death. Young children playing outside in the summertime are generally at highest risk of a snakebite. Although venomous snakes are rare in West Virginia , even a non-venomous snake bite can become infected and lead to illness. Snakes go wherever there is food. Places with existing rodent or insect infestations make promising homes. Residents can detect the presence of snakes by keeping an eye open for the reptiles sunning themselves on patios, driveways, or rocks. Finding discarded snake skins around West Virginia homes or yards is another good way to discover snake infestations. If there is a pond or stream on the property, snakes may be seen swimming in the water or slithering through the grass at the water’s edge.
