Snake Removal in Charleston, SC


Removing snakes in Charleston, SC

 Charleston, SC Snakes are in every state of our country. you will at one time or more in your life run across them, whether in your garden, garage or even in your home.

The top three pictures to the side were sent to me by a client that took these in Texas at an oil well site, I thought it a very compelling advocacy of the common Rat snake and their benefits.

Charleston, SC Eastern and Western Rat snakes are one of my favorite snakes just because they are so fascinating. For one thing they don't need the sun to metabolize their foods. this means that they don't have to be out in the sun to digest their meals. they hang out in crawl spaces and even attics for months at a time where other snakes would need to come and go.

So its no wonder that I am called on most of my reptile calls to remove them.

Although typically a very dark almost black top with pasterns blended in the scales and usually have a light underbelly, in youth their patterns are more present and are most often confused with Copperhead.

Very territorial, they will kill , even consume any snake that would happen into there areas. As fierce hunters they can set up ambush in almost any place. they have great eye to boot. this is way it is very beneficial to allow their presence if at all possible.. "better a black snake than a poisonous snake farmers used to say" , it is actually true.

Although I love these amazing creatures, they have no place in our homes.This is why The wildlife Professionals  of Charleston, SC are here! we are great at removing and even excluding them form your house to avoid future occurrences. We have treatments as well that we can use to ensure a safe yards and play areas as well.

  • If you are bitten by a snake:    Was the snake venomous? If you know you have been bitten by a harmless snake, it will save you much stress and eliminate the need for treatment. Many people are bitten by harmless snakes each year and experience nothing but small scratches that readily heal. If you are certain a venomous snake was involved, get to the nearest hospital or medical facility as quickly as possible. If possible, notify them ahead of time via telephone of your situation. This gives the physician time to prepare and call the nearest poison information center for advice.
    The Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center in Tucson (800-222-1222) maintains a list of which types of antivenins (sometimes called antivenoms) are available and can advise a physician where to call in the event of a bite from a venomous snake.
