Raccoons will use just about any space they can access for shelter inside or outside a home. Characteristics of the nonvenomous snake are narrow head, no pit between eye and nostril and round pupils. Western rattlesnakes are easy to identify due to the distinctive rattle at the end of their tail, which they shake when threatened to warn of their presence. Since Raccoons are pests and cause much disturbance and noise, it is necessary to get rid of them quickly. Sometimes they'll sunbathe to raise temperature. Snakes eat such animals as frogs, salamanders, insects, worms, small rodents and birds. Venomous snakes have sharp, hollow fangs designed to pierce skin and inject venom. One myth about snakes is that if a snake has a triangular head, it is poisonous (venomous). This is not true - most snakes have triangular heads. As reptiles, their body temperature is regulated by surrounding temperatures. Usually it directly affects the location where the snake has bitten its victim, and can have a very negative effect on the cells where the snake has bitten the organism.

What Kind of Damage Do Bats Cause?

  • Raccoon Pest Control - Traditional Pest Control Methods Are Ineffective

If you have raccoons in your attic, the total cost will probably run between $350 - $500 to remove all the raccoons (plus young) and seal the entry holes shut. The poo and pee out of the same hole. Since many people ask me, I have posted some photos of what snake poop looks like. The Mexican Free-Tail Bat Tadarida brasiliensis is common in the south. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. Once the raccoons are out of the chimney, you should install a strong steel chimney cap to discourage them from returning. They mate in the fall, but delay fertilization, and one pup is born in early June, and can fly about eight weeks later. That is, no snake will slither up to you and attack you. Most species of venomous snakes are pit vipers, which can navigate their environment and hunt using infrared-sensing receptors that allow them to detect the heat of their prey.

All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. Many snakes have distinct stripes or patterning. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team. Snakes are scaly, legless reptiles that slither across the ground and constantly taste the air by flicking out their forked tongues. In areas with high native snake populations, snake-proof fences may be erected to keep the slithery pests away from children in play areas, though enclosing entire yards with snake-proof fencing often proves prohibitively expensive. The Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. Dealing with urban animals is an inconvenience that many home owners in the northern US and southern Canada face. They bite the prey and quickly wrap themselves around it.
