Snake Removal and Control in North Georgia

Rid-A-Critter provides snake control throughout our tri-state service area

Snakes are reptiles belonging to the suborder Serpentes. They are found in most parts of the world, but like cold-blooded animals in general, snakes are especially common in warm climates like those of our Georgia and South Carolina service area.

Humane snake removal and control is one of our most in-demand summer services. Like all cold-blooded animals, snakes become more active as the temperature increases; so we get a lot of hits on our site for the search term "snake exterminators in Georgia" or "snake exterminators in South Carolina" during the warmer months.

But most snakes are harmless and greatly beneficial, so there really is no such thing as a "snake exterminator." Good judgment and discretion are necessary when performing snake control.

 

Snakes of the South

There are approximately 40 species of snakes found in Georgia. But only six of these species are venomous (or "poisonous") snakes:

 

Most snakes are not venomous, even here in the South. But because many snakes have similar coloration, non-professionals often have a hard time telling them apart. For this reason -- and because of the obvious risks associated with handling snakes -- untrained people shouldn't attempt to trap or remove snakes themselves.

Call us instead. We know how to tell dangerous snakes from harmless ones, and we have the know-how to safely remove any kind of snakes from your property.

 

When is Snake Control Necessary?

Snake removal job in Georgia. Snake control is a skilled profession requiring specialized training. Kids, don't try this at home!

With non-venomous snakes, that depends on your feelings about snakes. Most snakes feed on rats, mice, and other rodents that transmit disease and cause agricultural damage, and many people don't mind sharing their gardens with a few non-venomous snakes in return for their help keeping the rodent populations down. So unless snakes really creep you out, there's no need to disturb non-venomous snakes that are doing no harm.

Some people are deathly afraid of snakes, however, and want them gone, no matter whether they're venomous or not. And of course, most people (at least most normal people) don't want snakes slithering around in their basements, living rooms, or bedrooms, or in sensitive outdoor areas like children's sandboxes and play areas.

No worries. If you have venomous snakes in your basement or elsewhere in your home or property, we can remove them. And if having even a few non-poisonous snakes in your garden creeps you out, we can safely and humanely remove them and release them far from your home, where they won't bother you again. The snakes may be a bit insulted, but they'll get over it.

 

Venomous Snake Control in Georgia and South Carolina

Venomous snakes, of course, must be removed when they get too close to human-occupied buildings, farms, or recreation areas. The bites of venomous snakes can be fatal to humans, domestic animals, and livestock; so trapping venomous snakes is a job for professionals.

At Rid-A-Critter, all of our animal control technicians have advanced training in poisonous snake control. In fact, we're the region's leader in professional snake removal. We have fully-trained technicians living, working, and providing snake control services in the Metro Atlanta area, Athens, Augusta, Columbus, Macon, Roswell, and all of Northern and Central Georgia, as well as in the Aiken, South Carolina and Birmingham, Alabama areas.
