Lansdale wildlife control tip of the month:
How to Kill a Snake
Snakes can be a Lansdale pest control problem if they are found in a yard, garden or even in your home. There are numerous
ways you can get rid of a snake. Some of them are humane, others aren’t. The most common Lansdale animal trapping way to catch
a snake many people use is a glue trap or a minnow trap. Minnow trap is basically a metal mesh cylinder
with bait inside and one or two entrances. A snake can enter it, but it cannot get out. Once caught, it
can be relocated, preferably at least one mile away from the place caught, but some people want to be sure
they got rid of them, and so they sometimes put the cage into the water for a while to drown the animal. It
goes without saying that it is a very cruel way to kill it. Glue traps are another Lansdale animal control option. They are drawn
into it by bait also, and inside they have an adhesive surface a snake sticks to and cannot get away. You
can then free them elsewhere by putting oil on a snake, or you can kill it in numerous ways.
Poisons are one thing that will surely not get you rid of snakes on your property. Problem with poisons is
that snakes love to catch their pray alive, so basically, there is no way to poison a snake. Baits people use
to lure a snake are eggs and live mice or rodents, so how could you poison a snake? Anyone claiming so is deluding
Shooting a snake is another Lansdale wildlife removal option, but it is not recommended. Problem with shooting is that snakes are very hard to spot,
they move very silently and will avoid you if they sense you. Their bodies are very well adapted to sensing vibrations of
the ground and their sense of smell is very well developed. They will not show themselves to you easily. Another thing with
shooting is, it is not very practical taking a rifle or a gun and goes shooting in your back yard or garden. Your neighbors
might not be so pleased with that option.
So what to do then? The best thing to do would be to call a local Lansdale exterminator expert in the area. They are very skillful when dealing
with snakes and you personally take the least risk yourself. You can also try live trapping them, but you have to know what
to do with them once caught.
