This Fall season, Snakes are on the move here in Houston, Texas. In the last week, we have received MANY calls regarding snakes. Many of you maybe wondering why? We got you covered. Snakes are moving around a lot this fall as the weather changes and cools down. There are several reasons why they may be on the move, such as looking for food or places to hibernate.
One of the most common snakes you may encounter this fall here in Houston is the garter snake. These small snakes tend to be harmless, but can be dangerous if you are bitten by one. It is important to take caution when handling or approaching snakes, as they can strike out of fear and may attack. Always remember to be respectful and cautious around animals.
Another Snake you may see this fall is the copperhead snake. These snakes are well camouflaged and blend in with their surroundings, so it is important to take caution when outdoors this fall. The copperhead snake can be easily identified by it’s triangular head and reddish-brown coloration.
There are many ways you can decrease your risk around these snakes while enjoying the great outdoors this fall season. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to be cautious when walking in wooded areas, as snakes tend to hide in tall grass and brush. Additionally, it is important to take precaution when leaving pet food outside. Pet food often attracts small rodents, who are also a favorite snack item for snakes.
If you see a snake on your property, it is best to call in a professional who can capture the snake safely and remove it from the area. There are several ways that you can keep snakes away from your property and avoid any unwanted encounters.
How Can I Keep Snakes Away From My Property?
One of the best things that you can do is to eliminate any potential hiding spots for snakes on or around your property. This may include keeping wood piles, compost, and other debris away from the house or making sure that there are no gaps in your foundation walls where a snake can get inside.
You should also make sure that you keep any bushes, shrubs, and trees trimmed back from the house so that snakes do not have a place to hide nearby. Additionally, removing any other piles of debris or trash from your yard will help to discourage snakes from moving into your property.
Finally, if you want to take additional measures to prevent snakes from entering your property, you can use snake repellent products. These typically contain a scent that snakes find unpleasant, and can be sprayed around the perimeter of your home or around other areas where you want to discourage snakes.
