The good news about snakes is that running into them is fairly rare. Despite their fearsome reputation, most species of snakes are shy and do not want to confront humans. Most will not seek out humans, and if they do attack, it is done for defensive reasons because they have been stepped on or their habitat has been disturbed.
However, snakes do sometimes end up around buildings and do require some control. If you find snakes on your property, the best way to deal with them is to call your local Department of Natural Resources or reach out to the National Wildlife Species Information Center.

There are certain places where snakes may be more likely to hide on your property.
Snakes like to hide, so you may not know they are around until you actually see them. Snakes shed their skins several times a year, so one of the first signs might be the shed skins they leave behind. If your business is in a dusty area or has a lot of dirt around, you might also see twisted trails from where they slithered by.
How ‘snake proof’ is your business? Are you aware that a snake, particularly the thinner ones, can get into your commercial property through a gap the size of a pen or pencil – as can a mouse!
Also, remember that some snakes can swim and climb so carefully inspect the exterior and interior of your building. A Rentokil Specialist can inspect your premises and advise you on proofing against entry by snakes.
