Slithering Snakes Begone! Premiere Snake Removal Services

Unwanted snakes in your Florida home or yard? Florida Wildlife Trappers offers professional snake removal services to safely and humanely evict serpents from properties across the state.

As warmer weather arrives, snakes become more active and visible. But a snake sighting doesn’t necessarily mean you have an infestation. A lone garter snake passing through your garden is no cause for alarm. However, repeated snake sightings, strange musky odors, shed skins, droppings, holes in walls, and rustling noises likely point to a larger snake problem that requires professional removal.

Our snake removal experts can handle situations ranging from a single snake that wandered inside to a large-scale infestation. We use proven methods to remove snakes, seal up access points, and address what’s attracting them to your property in the first place.

Venomous snakes such is these are why snake removal is important

Why Snake Removal is Important

In Central Florida, the presence of venomous snakes like the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake and the Water Moccasin underscores the critical importance of snake removal services. These snakes pose a significant threat to the safety of residents and their pets. Professional snake removal not only mitigates the risk of potentially life-threatening snakebites but also helps maintain the delicate balance of the local ecosystem by relocating these creatures to safer environments. It is an essential service that ensures the well-being of both humans and the local wildlife in Central Florida.

Snake Removal Process

Our snake removal technicians take a strategic approach focused on thorough inspection, humane trapping methods, sealing entry points, and eliminating food sources. Here’s what you can expect


A thorough inspection of your property inside and out is key to finding all snake access points and hiding spots. Using specialized tools and techniques, we’ll methodically check every nook and cranny inside your home, under porches and decks, along the foundation, and anywhere snakes may squeeze into. Attics, crawlspaces, garages, and basements are common trouble spots.

Entry Point Sealing

Once identified, we seal up any cracks, holes, gaps, loose vents, or other openings that allow snakes to enter your home. This helps ensure any snakes already removed can’t easily find their way back in. Sealing gaps also helps keep out insects, rodents, and other nuisance wildlife that attract snakes.

Entry Point Sealing

We use snake-specific trapping techniques and equipment for safe, humane capture including:

  • Funnel traps set along walls and in other high-traffic areas
  • Glue boards (vegetable oil allows safe snake release if nonvenomous)
  • Snake tongs for direct capture of coiled or hiding snakes

Traps are checked daily and monitored with cameras so we can act quickly once snakes are caught. Trapping continues until no more snakes are found.

Food Source Removal

Snakes often enter homes while hunting rodents, their main food source. If an active rodent population is found inside, we’ll use humane trapping and exclusion tactics to remove them. This helps eliminate the food source drawing snakes onto your property. Proper sanitation and food storage also discourage rodents.

Snake Relocation or Removal

Once captured, nonvenomous snakes are safely relocated to suitable uninhabited natural habitats far from homes and businesses. Unfortunately, relocation is not recommended for venomous snakes which are euthanized humanely per Florida law. Call us immediately if you spot a venomous serpent!

Follow-Up Inspections

We schedule follow-up inspections after the initial snake removal to ensure no snakes were missed and that no new snakes have entered. Follow-ups continue until no snake activity is found during an inspection.
