Tampa Florida Snake Situation: Getting rid of snakes - One of the most common snakes in the yards of Tampa Bay is the garter snake. This harmless animal is sometimes the cause of panic for homeowners. The female garter snake can attract males to her in droves when she is ready to breed. If you feel suddenly beset by handfuls of garter snakes, rest assured that their numbers will eventually go back down. You can put out snake traps, but you may not be able to control such a large volume of animals. Situations like this warrant the intervention of a professional. Other snakes around the home can be trapped and removed with traps as long as they are snakes that have maintained their presence within the yard. Many serpents are just passing through; let them go about their business and they will likely remove some of your insects or rodents. The best thing you can do to keep snakes away is to eliminate the vegetation and debris they like to hide under. Grass should always be kept short. This is not just for snakes but for other nuisance animals as well. Gardens with dense groundcover will be ideal places for snakes to hide. Unfortunately, sometimes pest control means doing without the flowers and bushes you enjoy.
David, I was out on the internet searching for info on pest control and found your site. I am buying a 20 year old townhome in Tampa, Florida. Today I was in the home with the building inspector, and we found two problems in the basement -- a tiny snake and evidence of squirrels. The inspector says this is a problem that can be solved, but I am afraid to proceed with the purchase. I am worried that the problem will be ongoing, and that squirrels may have damaged wiring, etc. The home is in a lovely, upscale neighborhood, and I was so surprised to find the pest problem. I really love the home, but for my this might be a show-stopper. Can pest control companies get rid of squirrels and snakes permanently? How do I find a really good service? I did email one of the local services listed in your directory. I want a company that can inspect the home, explain how the problem would be addressed, and give an estimate for the services. I will insist that this problem be resolved before I settle on the house. Thank you for any advice you can offer. Gina
I certainly wouldn't let a little snake or squirrel activity prevent you from a home purchase! Just call a wildlife expert to inspect and seal up the house! Shouldn't be too much work or cost.
