How to remove snakes

Hi my name is Brendan Mangnitz, I have been in the Nuisance Wildlife Removal industry now for nearly 6 years since I graduated from College at UF with a background in Entomology and Wildlife Biology. I have seen and controlled just about any wildlife issue you may think of. I have dealt with snakes in apartment complexes, snake removal from your everyday household, snakes in the attic, snakes tearing up yards, snakes in pools, snakes stuck in chimneys, and the list goes on and on. I have used several different control and removal methods for snakes and that’s what I want to share with you guys on our website here at

Snakes can be a serious problem. If you notice snakes (especially venomous snakes) or signs of snakes in or on your property, it is important to call a wildlife professional to remove them for your safety.

Snake trapping can be difficult for several reasons. Snakes are not attracted to bait so the traps must be placed in strategic locations that would entice the snake to go into the trap. This is usually done by placing a glue board underneath a cover board that is only a few inches off of the ground. Water dwelling snakes such as cottonmouths (also known as water moccasins) present a different set of challenges. Minnow traps set halfway in the water with fish in them can be used but the most effective way for us to remove snakes from a pond is manually using snake tongs or snake hooks. It is important to get a professional out to your property quickly so that we can more easily find the snakes for you.

Every snake trapping and removal job is different. Depending on the species and the property, traps might be placed in the house, in the attic, along the ground in the yard, in bushes, or in ponds. Pitfall traps, glue boards, and funnel traps are all different styles of trap that may be deployed as well. It is important to know what type of trap is the best for the given circumstances.

Another concern is what attracted the snakes to your property in the first place? Do you have rats or mice in your attic or house that the snakes are coming after? A full inspection of the house should be done at the same time as the Snake Removal.

And that is my How to Guide when it comes to snakes in the attic or your property and how to remove them. Like I have mentioned, my name is Brendan Mangnitz, I have being doing pest wildlife and snake removal now for over 6 years. I have worked and trained hundreds of people over the past several years. It takes time, skill, and patience but removing snakes can be very fun, dangerous, but is also something that we deal with on a daily basis here. Snakes have learned how to thrive and do great in the urban setting. This is not something that is going away. With more and more houses coming up every day, more land being constructed and developed we will always have issues with snakes in the residence. Just read and learn how to protect yourself you family and your home and you should be good to go.
