Snake removal is the solution to quite a variety of snakes that are an increasing problem in the South. With the movement of food closer and closer to the homes, there are more snakes coming close to where we live. A common misconception is that snakes are poisonous. The reality is that some are venomous! The difference is poisons have to be absorbed through the body, whether through ingestion or dermal (skin) contact. There are, however, a number of venomous snakes that we can be concerned about in the South. Venom has to be injected straight into the body and can cause tremendous pain and life threatening situations.
The dangers of snakes do not even stop at whether the snakes are venomous or non-venomous. Snakes will tend to have loads of bacteria in their mouths which can be transported to humans with a single bite. Most snakes are not overly aggressive, but will defend themselves when threatened. This is why a professional snake control expert is always important when considering snake removal. Identification of the snake is also important because in order to treat for venomous snake bites, the hospital has to know which snake injected the venom to prescribe the correct anti venom treatment. As more and more exotic snakes get released into the wild, it becomes increasingly harder to identify snakes without being trained as a professional snake control expert.
