Snakes are reptiles, recognized by their long, slithering, flexible bodies. Some think snakes are cool; others find them frightening. Although snakes are beneficial to our environment by eating common household pests such as termites, rodents, and other reptiles, they can become a nuisance when getting onto your property or inside your home.
Snakes are found throughout almost all parts of the world, mostly in tropical regions and live in many habitats including in the water, forests, deserts, and prairies. If a food source becomes scarce for snakes, they may enter a home or other buildings in search of something to eat. Once a snake does get into your home, call Critter Control of Dallas right away to help remove it. Extreme caution should be used when handling a snake, especially if you are unsure as to whether it could be venomous or nonvenomous.
Venomous snakes in Texas include rattlesnakes, copperheads, western cottonmouths, and coral snakes whereas some nonvenomous snakes include Texas rat snakes, diamond water snakes, and blotched or plain-bellied water snakes. While snakes won’t intentionally seek to harm you, bites from snakes can be caused when a person hesitates or becomes anxious and improperly tries to trap a snake on their own.
