What Types of Snakes are Present in Maryland?
Snakes are essential to Maryland’s ecosystem, serving as natural predators of mice, rats, rodents, and various other small animals. They regularly consume tick-carrying mammals, helping to protect local residents from the spread of Lyme disease. As a result of their importance, each snake species in the state is protected by the Nongame and Endangered Species Conservation Act. But just because they are useful does not mean they belong in your home. Two of Maryland’s snake species are extremely dangerous to humans. Copperhead snakes and timber rattlesnakes each have medically-significant venom. If you notice either of these pit vipers on your property or in your home, call All Star Pest Management right away.
Are All Snakes Harmful?
No. Of Maryland’s 27 snake species and sub-species, 25 do not carry venom. Common water snakes, North American racers, garter snakes, rat snakes, ribbon snakes, and a host of others may be unsettling but will not harm you. Nevertheless, our team of wildlife removal experts can visit your home or office to get them away from your property and ensure that chore does not fall into your hands.
How Can I Prevent Snake Infestations?
Generally, most snakes are averse to being around humans. However, large portions of their diets may draw them close to your property. Because snakes typically feast on small pest animals, your home could serve as an ideal diner for the legless reptile. A good way to prevent snakes from your home is to ensure there is no food source. Follow our instructions regarding rodent control or enlist our services to keep rats and mice away from your home. Without their next meal crawling around your property, snakes will stay away, too. Furthermore, be sure to seal any cracks in your door frames, holes in your walls, and crevices in your foundation. Snakes can sneak through tiny openings to become unwelcome guests.
What are the signs of a snake infestation?
Snakes are excellent hiders. They may live in your home for months without you noticing them. Unlike other pests, they do not damage your property. Many simply coil up and nest between feeding times, out of sight and out of mind. But there are several snake infestation signs of which you should be aware, including:
- Snake skin – As snakes grow, they shed their skin. If you notice dry, scaly skin near an entryway, there is a high likelihood a snake has made its way into your home.
- Slither tracks – These are not always obvious but may be noticeable in dusty areas or crawlspaces.
- Odor – A strange smell in your attic or crawlspace may signify a snake’s presence.
- Droppings – Snake droppings often look like bird feces but may include bones and hair from their prey.
Why Is It Important to Remove Snakes from My Home?
The most important reason for removing snakes from your home is their danger. Poisonous snakes are prone to attacking you or your pets if they feel threatened, and venomous strikes could be fatal. But it is nearly as important to remove non-venomous snakes from your Baltimore home to prevent them from multiplying and creating unsanitary living conditions.
