Snakes wander into homes in search of prey and nesting sites or find themselves inside purely by accident. Since they cannot chew or dig, they must gain entrance through small holes and cracks at ground level. Depending on their size, snakes may even be able to slither under gaps in doors. They most often enter a home through cracks in the foundation, though some snakes are good climbers. Once inside, the pests travel throughout houses inside walls, pipes, and around trusses.
If they are able to secure consistent access to food, the pests establish long-term nests. They also flock inside homes when the weather wreaks havoc with their cold-blooded bodies. For example, during periods of extreme heat, the pests seek out leaky water pipes and other cool, damp areas. Additionally, snakes in houses are commonly found in walls, crawl spaces, basements, attics, and drop ceilings.
In addition to the threat of their painful and sometimes deadly bites, snakes are capable of transmitting diseases. Therefore, it is essential to eliminate infestations before their numbers become rampant. Homeowners can seal gaps in building foundations with caulk, store woodpiles off the ground, clear debris out of yards regularly. If infestations of snakes in the house exists, it would be best if you should contact a professional animal removal company. They can catch and remove the snake(s) and take other actions necessary to solve the snake problem.
