VIRGINIA SNAKE REMOVAL SERVICES
We remove all types of snakes, venomous and non-venomous. Snakes can become extremely aggressive if they feel threatened by humans. Gravid (pregnant) females are particularly aggressive since they are protecting their unborn young, and if you see a hatchling then you can be certain other hatchlings are in the area.
Trying to remove a snake yourself usually just angers the animal and provokes strikes. Removing a wild animal is not worth your life, please do not try this yourself, and leave it for professionals.
Most snakes will not bite unless provoked, that is why it’s extremely important to leave snake removal to professionals. Trying to remove a snake yourself can result in death or at the very least a painful bite that may require medical treatment. And even with medical treatment some of the effects of snake bites can be long-lasting.
