Snake Control Richmond, VA
There are several snake control techniques. The easiest, and perhaps the best, is habitat modification. The snakes are on your property because something is attracting them to that area. The two most likely attractants are cover and forage. If your property has a lot of debris and thick plant life, it will attract snakes. Especially attractive are things snakes can hide under, such as plywood boards, gaps under concrete, etc. Eliminate the clutter, trim back the weeds, and fill in any gaps that snakes would like to use for shelter.
Like many animals, snakes often choose flight before fight, but a startled or provoked snake will certainly defend itself. Many snake bite victims are bitten on the arms or hands, indicating that they messed with snakes they should not have. Bites can be avoided using common sense. Many snakes give a warning before a strike (such as the rattlesnake's tail rattle), but not always. Some snakes can be unpredictable. It is best to keep distance between yourself and a dangerous snake, at least up to half a snake's body length, which is a typical striking distance.
