Would you feel comfortable calling for snake removal services for a tiny snake? Are you afraid of snakes, or do you know enough about Georgia snakes to capture one skillfully and responsibly? Many homeowners would rather leave these jobs up to professionals; so, don’t feel bad if you’re one of them. Snake phobias are one of the most common fears, and for good reason. A bite from the wrong kind of snake poses a serious threat.
Small Snake Removal Can Help Prevent Painful Bites
It’s not always about what will kill you. Snakes have long fangs, and it does hurt to get bit. Snakes are also more likely to bite than many of the other wildlife creatures that regularly wind up in people’s homes. There is nothing strange about calling in a wildlife exclusion specialist if you find even a tiny snake in your home. North Fulton Pest Solutions employs technicians who are licensed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for wildlife removal. We thoroughly train our team in snake removal due to the potentially deadly nature of the animals they’re likely to come across.
Professional Snake Removal Can Help Prevent Other Serious Problems as Well
Who said the only poisonous snakes are large and threatening? Georgia is home to six deadly strikers – the Copperhead, the Cottonmouth Water Moccasin, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, the Timber Rattlesnake, the Coral Snake, and the Pigmy Rattlesnake. As the name suggests, the Pigmy Rattlesnake is a small snake spanning only 16 inches at maturity. Possibly because of its small stature, it’s also quick to defend itself. That makes for a combination capable of leaving you in peril if you attempt to remove one on your own.
What will happen if the Pigmy Rattlesnake strikes? While the bite is venomous, that doesn’t guarantee you’ll wind up at Death’s door, but children and those with compromised immune systems will likely spend a few nights in the hospital, or worse. Healthy adults will suffer the pain of the bite and venom, and it’s likely the effects will last for a few days. All in all, you’ve more than enough reason to call in experts to handle the problem. The expense of exclusion is worth your family and guests staying healthy and pain-free. There’s also the chance you’re dealing with a young viper or other truly deadly specimen.
Snake Removal Services Stop You From Breaking the Law
Georgia law protects most snakes from harm. You can’t poison them. You can’t smash them. And you definitely can’t shoot a small snake found in your home! You can’t knowingly allow a wild animal to live on your property either, so removal is your only option. Unfortunately, most homeowners aren’t prepared for trapping even a small snake and moving it outdoors. The investment you make in professional wildlife exclusion services is more than worth the cost, all risks considered.
North Fulton Pest Solutions will provide you with affordable, valuable snake removal services regardless of the size of snake you find on your property. Give us a call at 770-475-7419to schedule a visit or to request a free quote.
