Snake Traps

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

Snake traps are extremely variable. Some snakes are arboreal meaning the live in trees. Some snakes are terrestrial meaning the live on the ground. Some snakes are mostly aquatic and rarely leave the water. Each type of snake requires a specific type of trap.

Funnel traps can be used either partially submerged for aquatic snake or along drift fences for terrestrial snakes. These are the most effective and humane traps to use.

Glue boards placed under coverboards are another style of trap that is effective. Glue boards can be placed in the attic where climbing snakes might reside or underneath convenient hiding places that ground dwelling snakes might seek out. Snakes can be released from these traps using vegetable oil once they are relocated to a safe place far away from other homes.

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.
