Snakes can be frightening and although there are only two types of venomous snakes in Connecticut, it’s better to avoid them altogether. These reptiles can be hard to trap and catch, which means removal should be left to professional wildlife control services.
Maintain Your Yard To Prevent Snakes
One thing you don’t want to do is attract snakes to your yard. Snakes like tall grass, lots of shrubs and plants, and cool shaded places to hide like in piles of wood or areas under your patio. With all of these in mind, it’s important to maintain your yard, starting with regularly mowing your lawn or trimming high shrubs. Tall grass is perfect for snakes as they enjoy the temporary shelter and the abundant food source. Additionally, snakes enjoy places that allow them to be unnoticeable but they also like to reside in cool and shadowed places, which is why underneath patios and decks are so appealing. Do your best to block areas underneath your home, patio and deck. This way they’ll leave your yard and move to another area that’s more easily accessible.
It’s important to know that most snakes are non-venomous, and typically not aggressive. However, it’s not that simple for the average person to spot whether the snake is venomous or not. Therefore, if you see a snake, the best thing you can do is just leave it alone. If you need the snake removed, wait until professional snake removal services arrive to handle the issue for you.

A fear of snakes is common so finding them around your home or commercial building can be a little frightening. Although most snakes around Connecticut are non-venomous, it’s understanding to not want them around your home or building. Unless you know how to do so properly, snake removal should be left to the professionals, especially if you don’t know the identification of the species.

So what attracts snakes to your home or property? Snakes look for a safe place to live, hunt and hide, and places to slither in. Vegetation, especially high grass and plants, is very attractive to snakes. Also, if your home or property has any larger rocks, sidewalk, plywood, a shed, these are also major factors that attract snakes to your property. If you are having a problem with snakes, inspect your property and do what you can to eliminate or shorten the vegetation as well as securing any openings that will attract snakes to hide in.
