a snake sitting in a pile leavesSpring is quickly approaching, which means the weather is warm but not too hot. Spring and fall are a snake’s favorite seasons, so there is a greater chance of you encountering these reptiles. (If you have a snake problem in your home or lawn, call Bizzy Bee Exterminators – your snake removal experts!) To avoid a confrontation with a snake, consider these helpful tips:

Be Mindful of Damp Places

During the heat of the day, snakes find solace in damp places such as well-watered gardens, cave-like structures, and shrub beds. If you’re working in your garden or your kids are playing in the yard, make sure you check for snakes in areas that are both damp and dark.

Make a Lot of Noise

Snakes pick up vibrations that travel through the ground. So, when you see a snake close by, don’t hesitate to stomp your feet or tread heavily so he knows you’re there. Don’t try to sneak by the snake. A snake is more likely to lunge at you if he is startled.

Eliminate a Snake’s Food Source

Snakes love small rodents such as rats, squirrels, and mice. To eliminate the presence of snakes, take away their food source. (Your snake removal experts can help with this! The Bizzy Bee Exterminators can remove and prevent rodents from residing in or near your home.) Once a snake realizes your property doesn’t offer food anymore, he will leave.
