Orlando Florida Snake Control & Removal
Info: If you don't like snakes,
you've picked the wrong state to live in.
There are 45 species of snakes in Florida,
6 of which are venomous. They live in a
variety of habitats, some aquatic, some
land-based. All snakes are carnivores, and
feed on a variety of small prey. Snakes
can prove beneficial in reducing rats and
mice, but many people prefer not to
encounter snakes at all. It is worth
noting that the venomous snakes are rare,
and only 4 of the 6 venomous species live
in central Florida. People commonly
misidentify snakes. However, if you are
unsure and want snake removal or
prevention, give me a call.
not provoke or attempt to handle any snake that
you cannot properly identify - it may be a
venomous snake. If you are bitten by a venomous
snake, you should immediately seek medical
attention at a hospital.
often encounter snakes because their
property provides good habitat. Like all
animals, snakes seek out good places to
hunt and hide. Sometimes this includes a
person's property, or even house if there
is access. Like many animals, snakes often
choose flight before fight, but a startled
or provoked snake will certainly defend
itself. Many snake bite victims are bitten
on the arms or hands, indicating that they
messed with snakes they should not have.
Bites can be avoided using common sense.
Many snakes give a warning before a strike
(such as the rattlesnake's tail rattle),
but not always. Some snakes can be
unpredictable. It is best to keep distance
between yourself and a dangerous snake, at
least up to half a snake's body length,
which is a typical striking distance.

Let 24/7 Wildlife Removal safely
identify, capture, & remove an
unwanted snake on your property or in
I have studied and spent time with almost
all species of snakes of Florida, and I
can identify them, and understand their
behavior. I am skilled at capturing and
safely transporting snakes. I have
specialty professional snake tongs that
help capture and remove snakes without
inflicting injury to snake (or human). I
safely transport snakes in a snake sack.
It is unwise for the unskilled to attempt
to catch snakes by hand.
If you consistently see snakes on your
property or in your house, I can assist in
snake prevention. I can modify the
attraction the habitat provides, or
eliminate entry points into houses. I do
not apply a specially designed snake
repellant that deters snakes from the
area, because these products do not work.
I do have snake traps which will capture a
hiding snake in a building or outside.
Here is a link to another site about Snake
Trap and Repellent information.

photographs that I've compiled about various
snakes in Florida:
Removal operates in the Greater Orlando area of
central Florida. This is a specialty wildlife
removal business. Wild animal control is all I
do - I do not spray poison for insect control. I
provide snake capture and removal for snake
control. I do not run an exterminating business
or a pest control business, I run a nuisance
wildlife business. I do not provide
extermination of snakes, but humane capture and
relocation. The most common species of snakes
that I deal with are the Florida Black Racer,
the Corn Snake (Red Rat Snake), the Yellow Rat
Snake, the Banded Water Snake, the Florida
Ringneck Snake, and the Eastern Garter Snake. If
you want to get rid of your Florida snake
problem once and for all, give me a call!
