How do snakes get in my house? Snakes get in houses many ways. Snakes can enter around utility lines, vents, siding gaps, and through multiple construction gaps around the roof. People often ask, can a snake climb up a house? Yes, some snakes are very good climbers. Another main snake entry point is the siding to foundation gap, it is normally close to the ground and gives easy access for snakes in the basement.

We split snake proofing in Virginia into two categories, venomous snakes and non-venomous snakes. Virginia venomous snakes are not very good climbers and will only enter snake entry points close to the ground level of the home. Non-venomous snakes are amazing climbers, especially the Black Rat Snake, this is why we constantly are removing snakes from attics in Northern Virginia or finding snake skins in attics. To effectively seal out non-venomous snakes we must seal every snake entry point on the home from top to bottom.

Once we have located all the potential entry points we will snake proof your home. We use highly flexible sealants to keep snakes out. In Northern Virginia most building materials move with the heat and cold. to keep the snake entry points sealed the sealants must be able to flex in order to keep snakes out for years to come. Snake proofing is a very specialized profession in Virginia, if you seal up 90% of the home but miss just a few spots the snakes will find a way in.

We can also provide snake trapping programs for both the inside or outside of your home. Snake trapping is all about placement, we put the traps in areas that snakes will love and then come back and remove the snake capture. We also have a snake lure consisting mostly of mouse urine (snakes’ favorite food in your home), we put the snake bait in the traps as well. Also if there is a good chance a snake is inside when we snake proof your home, we will put some snake traps inside your home to catch the snake sealed inside.

Now that you have a snake free home, what are you going to do about the snake skins in your attic? We will remove all of the snake skins from your attic after we perform a proper snake exclusion. Once you get snakes out you do not want to be stuck with a bunch of ugly skins, especially if you ever go to sell your home. It may be a snake free house but the home inspector may think your house is snake infested due to the number of snake skins in the house.

So, if you want to sleep well at night and want to be sure your house in Northern Virginia is snake proof be sure to call professional snake removal company. Snake trapping and Snake removal are also regulated by the state and require a state licensed snake trapper. A handy man with a can of foam is not going to accomplish any snake proofing.
