Everything you need to know about snake removal in Pennsylvania
Snakes are very common in Pennsylvania, but the majority are non-venomous snakes. Frequently, we receive calls for snakes in swimming pools, inside houses, or under sheds and decks.
If a snake is in your home, there is no need to panic. Generally, if snakes are left alone, they will leave you alone. They only attack if they are provoked.
Furthermore, the majority of our snake removal calls are for black snakes and garter snakes. Additionally, these breeds of snakes are harmless. More details about these snakes can be found here.
If a snake is in your home, do not try to capture it. Also isolate it if possible and call a snake removal professional. Although venomous snakes are rare, it is difficult to determine without experience.
How Snake Removal Works
Snake repellents and other D-I-Y methods are ineffective. We use traps to capture a snake that isn’t currently visible. However, all snake removal is executed by hand. Then, the snake is relocated to a more appropriate location. This ensures the snake does not return.
All snakes in PA are protected by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. For more information about their policies, click here for their FAQ’s.
