SNAKE REMOVAL
Snake general information
Minnesota has 17 species of snakes, two, the Timber rattler and the Massasauga
are poisonous.  There have been only two unconfirmed sightings of the Massasauga in Minnesota. We do have a stabile population of Timber Rattlers that live in the southeastern tip of Minnesota.
Snakes hibernate in groups, usually in holes in the ground or in the foundations of buildings.

Snake removal
Yes, Nuisance Wildlife Control does remove snakes; most of the service calls are for Bull snakes or Fox snakes or one of the Garter snakes. Most snake species will bite but the Fox and Bull snake can get a little nippy and shouldn’t be attempted without the proper equipment. And PLEASE do not harm these snakes, they are very beneficial, and they do keep our rodent populations under control.

Snake proofing houses

Exclusion is the only long-term means of controlling snake problems in the home. Nuisance Wildlife Control will repair any holes in the foundation or outside wall of the house. NWC will also inspect the yard for possible snake hibernation sites. Snakes can crawl through very small openings (about 1/4 inch) so the repair must be thorough to ensure success. Most snakes can't dig their own holes so they must rely on existing holes. Some of these holes are easy fixes other requires drastic means to find (removing sheetrock, excavating around foundation). Habitat modification is another way to keep snake from hibernating on your site.
