Learn How To Distinguish Snakes
Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control’s snake specialists can distinguish every point of entry and make a determination as to whether snakes live or have lived in your attic. Our team always uses humane removal techniques, regardless of how dangerous or venomous a snake is. We simply happen to coexist within a community together and while snakes will always be a part of life in Texas, there is a safe way to share the environment. As new housing developments begin, snakes move to where they feel safe, under decks, houses, playgrounds, and in landscaped grasses and flower beds. It is always a good idea to keep an eye out and call immediately if you discover a snake on your property. Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control will ensure your snake problem is resolved with a permanent solution.
Again, snake control and removal should only be attempted by people who understand the danger this wildlife can present. The experienced professionals at Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control can offer solutions for the complete exclusion of snakes from your home by methods of relocation, habitat alteration, and many more.

Rat snakes have been known to live in Dallas and Fort Worth attics, feeding on rodents. As you may have seen on the local news, these snakes will lay their eggs in the insulation of attics. When the babies are born, they occasionally find their way inside the home. A Snake Control specialist can pinpoint entry areas and conclude if rat snakes live or ever have lived in your attic.
Bullsnakes are nonvenomous. Interestingly, however, bullsnakes are actually able to kill venomous rattlesnakes. They live in warm, dry places, and their diet consists of small rodents like mice and rats. Many homeowners in the Arlington and Fort Worth, TX area find bulls snakes in the yard or near fields of tall grass. A Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control professional can identify your snake species and relocate it to a safe, natural habitat.
RATTLESNAKES ARE VENOMOUS. They do not like people to get anywhere near them, and they will strike if a person wanders too close. These snakes can be identified by the rattles on the end of their tail that is shaken in the event of a disturbance. Make no mistake: rattlesnakes are quite dangerous. Call Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control team as soon as possible in the event that you see a rattlesnake in or near your home.
COPPERHEADS ARE VENOMOUS. These snakes are indigenous to the southern region of the U.S. and have a bite that can cause severe illness and even death. Copperheads have a distinctive light copper color and are often found in areas with brush, trees, or debris. The professionals at Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control will remove the copperhead from your property and release it into a safe environment, far away from public and private property.
COTTONMOUTHS ARE VENOMOUS. These snakes’ natural habitat is across the marshy wetlands of the southern U.S. states. They’re known for their brown body and white head. Cottonmouths dwell in or near bodies of water and can cause illness and death with their strike. Call a professional immediately if you see a cottonmouth snake around your area.
