Even Indiana Jones Doesn’t Like Snakes – That’s Why We Offer Snake Removal Services
Snakes are primordially scary – a part of our brain just doesn’t like things that crawl without legs! And this is for good reason, as venomous snakes can pose a serious risk if not treated with respect. We provide snake relocation so you don’t have to live with these scaly critters!
Our Snake Control Process
Our first step is always to undertake a thorough site investigation. If the snake is visible we’ll do a snake identification and determine the safest way to remove it. Since snakes cannot make holes in your house, we determine their entry point and assess for rodent infestation.
Snakes are an important part of the local ecosystem and so we take every opportunity to remove them unharmed. Depending on your situation our pest control experts may deploy snake repellent to encourage the snake to relocate, use snake traps, or if the snake is visible we can use snake tongs to safely capture the snake.
Recommendations for Exclusion and PEst Control
Snakes are non-destructive and won’t have created a hole to enter your house. Instead they will have come in through an existing hole – possibly one created by rodents. To prevent snakes from returning, we will make recommendations for exclusion and assess for the possibility of a rodent infestation.

You'll Be in Good Hands
“We started using Cramer in November 2020 and since they were hired….no more bug problems inside the house. On-time and very friendly. If you are fortunate enough to have Paul take care of your servicing, you’ll be in good hands.”
– Stacy T.
“We are so happy with Cramer Pest Control. We have been clients for several years for pest control. During a routine service call, CJ alerted us to a pipe leak that we had no idea was occurring. As a result, we were able to have a plumber and contractor come and fix the issue. It could have turned into a much bigger issue. Thank you!”

Frequently Asked Questions
Do snakes come back after removal?
Whether or not snakes return depends on whether or not the underlying factors that led them to your house are taken care of. Rodent infestations and easy access make your home an inviting space for snakes – a good exclusion job will prevent both rodents and snakes from entering your home.
Why would a snake come into my home?
Snakes are attracted to warmth, water sources, and good hunting grounds. If your yard has lots of tall grass or piles of dead leaves this encourages a large rodent population, which in turn attracts snakes. In the winter snakes may be looking for a warm place to go into brumation – a reptilian process similar to hibernation.
What types of snakes are common in the Carolinas?
The most common snakes homeowners are likely to encounter in North and South Carolina include:
- Water moccasins AKA cottonmouth
- Diamondback rattlesnakes
- Coral snake – a very uncommon, but highly venomous coastal species of snake
- Garter snakes
- Eastern rat snake
How can I discourage a snake from coming into my home?
The best way for homeowners to prevent snakes from coming into their home is the exact same as for preventing rodent intrusion. Keep your yard tidy and be sure to close up any exterior crevices and holes which would provide easy access to your home.
What time of year do snakes normally get into homes?
Fall is the time when the most snakes are sighted indoors – both because the leaf litter on the ground makes for a rodent playground and because as the weather gets colder snakes begin looking for a place to spend the winter.
