Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of snake removal depends on whether the snake is venomous or not. Where it is located will also impact the price with those in a crawl space or attic generally costing more than those in a yard, garage, or basement due to the ease of access. Depending on your location, professional removal averages between $150 and $600.

It's always important to remember that snakes rarely stay in one place. They do not "nest" in the traditional way. They are typically mobile. Outdoors, venomous snakes should be removed for your safety, but the vast majority of non-venomous snakes outdoors will leave if you let them on their way. Indoors, all snakes should be removed, but once removed, they are unlikely to come back (though other snakes may find a way through the same entrance points).

The exception to this is when they have an easily accessible habitat that keeps them safe, and they are not relocated. For example, if you see a snake on your property and scare it away, but you still have rocks or logs that offer a great, warm hiding spot, they may come back. That is why it is important to consider exclusion if you've seen regular snake invasions, or ask a professional to look for burrows that may harbor snakes.

For a venomous snake bite in both people and animals, immediate treatment by a medical professional is the best way to prevent severe symptoms or a fatality. Scientists have discovered that sucking venom from the wound has little effect. Instead, administering antivenom is the most effective treatment for a bite. A non-venomous bite should be treated as a normal wound by washing the injury before applying an antiseptic and a bandage. If the person experiences dizziness, nausea, vomiting, or other symptoms, seek medical help.

The timeline for fully eliminating snakes depends on the method you are using and at which point you consider them eliminated. Removing a single snake can be done in a couple of minutes or take a few days if traps are being used. Securing a house against snakes in the long term can take several hours of work across multiple days to clean the yard, patch holes, and install snake fencing.
