Snake Removal in the Macon, Georgia area

Snakes are very common wildlife here in Georgia. We have at least 40 species confirmed to live in the state. They're also among the more misunderstood of our Georgia wildlife.

Snakes are reptiles and belong to the order Serpentes, or serpents. Like all reptiles, snakes are cold-blooded, which means they have little ability to regulate their body temperatures.

In general, snakes are overwhelmingly beneficial because they're carnivores; and rodents like rats and mice are among their favorite foods. Snakes in your garden are almost certainly doing you more good than harm by dining on rodents and insects that eat or infest your crops.

Our Georgia snakes, like Georgians in general, also tend to be very polite. None of the species of snakes in Georgia will attack a human unless they feel threatened or are stepped on.

Venomous Snakes of Georgia

Of all the species of snakes we have in Georgia, only six are venomous ("poisonous"):

All the rest of our Georgia snakes are non-venomous. But unless you're a snake expert, any snake bite should be treated as a medical emergency unless you're absolutely certain that the snake is not venomous.

Snake Removal and Exclusion

Despite their overwhelmingly beneficial nature, there are times when snakes have to be removed from someplace where they don't belong. Some examples include:

After snakes have been removed from a home or building, it needs to be made animal-proof to keep snakes and other wildlife out.

We just removed a snake from over the drop ceiling of a retail store in Macon, Georgia. It most likely went up there looking for rodents to eat, so our pest control team is checking for evidence of a mouse or rat infestation.

Today we have a crew doing snake removal in Zebulon, Georgia. That's the reason the customer called. But as is usually the case, there's also a rodent problem in the house, which is the reason the snakes went inside to begin with. We're treating the rodent infestation as well as catching and relocating the snakes.

We have technicians heading out to remove snakes from the attic of a Macon home. No word on what kind of snakes they are yet, but most likely they followed mice or rats up to the attic looking for a quick meal.

Wildlife-removal technicians from our Macon office are heading out to do snake removal in Tifton, Georgia today. There's at least one snake in the attic, which we'll catch and relocate. Most likely there's also a rodent problem up there. That's usually the case when snakes slither all the way up to the attic.

Our Macon-area technicians found a pile of shed snakes skins in the attic at a Tifton, Georgia snake-removal job, suggesting that the snakes were actually living in the attic rather than just following rodents up there for a quick meal. This is unusual, but not unheard of.

A Macon, Georgia snake removal call turned out to be for a tiny green snake (that's the actual name of the specie), perhaps the most harmless and docile of all snakes found in Georgia. But some people just hate snakes in general, so we removed and relocated it.

Technicians from our Macon office removed several snakes from under the porch of a house in Americus, Georgia. Not surprisingly, they also found shed snake skins and evidence of mice in the crawl space. Most snake problems inside homes are the result of rodent infestations.

Snakes slithered their way up a vertical electrical conduit passing through the soffit panel to get into the attic of a house in Perry, Georgia. They probably were following roof rats into the attic, looking for a tasty meal.

We'll be heading to a Macon, Georgia snake-removal job later this morning or early this afternoon. The snake followed rats through a fist-sized hole in the brickwork and into the crawl space of the house. As much as we appreciate the help with the rodent pest control, the homeowner would prefer having neither rats nor snakes in her home. Go figure.

Our Macon office is responding to three snake-removal calls in South Georgia today. The first one is in Tifton, where the snakes followed rats through ventilation gaps in the brick foundation to get into the crawl space. We're treating the rat problem and will relocate the snakes, with our gratitude for their help on the rat control job.

A gap around a vertical pipe where it passes into the soffit allowed a snake to slither its way into the attic of a house in Americus. It most likely was following rodents that it wanted to eat; so our Macon-area wildlife-control technicians are inspecting the attic for mice or rats.

We removed a black rat snake from the attic of a house in Macon this morning. Rat snakes are non-venomous and highly-beneficial because they eat rodents (which is probably why the snake was in the attic in the first place). Most folks, however, prefer that the snakes stay out of their homes.

One of our wildlife-removal technicians just removed a rat snake from under the porch of a house in Macon. Rat snakes are non-venomous and do a lot more good than harm because they eat rodents. If you're comfortable with them living under your porch, you can leave them be. But if you're not, or if you aren't sure about the snake species, give us a call for prompt snake removal and relocation.
