The primary concern seems to be fear of snakes (Ophidiophobia) which many people have. If such harborage is removed, snakes will relocate. They smell with their tongues, by flicking the forked tongue out and tasting the air with the Jacobson's organ. To help keep body temperatures from dropping too low, sometimes snakes will even hibernate in dens together, thus sharing the limited heat available. They mate in the fall, but delay fertilization, and one pup is born in early June, and can fly about eight weeks later. If it's a colony of bats living in a building, they crawl to the edge, and fly out. Many of the southern bats migrate to different areas as climates change. To help keep body temperatures from dropping too low, sometimes snakes will even hibernate in dens together, thus sharing the limited heat available.

  • What is a Skunk's Natural Diet?

Often it's just a matter of ignorance - people don't know which snakes are venomous and which are not, so they are naturally cautious around all snakes. They'll get into pools, screened porches, and oftentimes, the home itself. That is the Cottonmouth. The combination of their urine, droppings, birthing debris, and decayed food scraps are known to cause unsightly leaks in the walls and ceilings, unbearable odors inside the home, and upper respiratory illnesses. I've seen adults cowering up on chairs, shaking. Damages can become extreme and require costly renovation and repairs if left alone for long periods of time. Whatever the issue, Attic Solutions can fix the damage. Roosting preference depends on the species and even gender of the bats, but we are only concerned with colonizing bats such as the three mentioned above.

  • What Should I Do with a Skunk After I Catch It?

There are four different kinds of toxins that a snake can inject into its victim, including neurotoxins, cardiotoxins, hemotoxins, and cytotoxins. After a while large piles of droppings form. While all are dangerous it is usually the neurotoxins and cardiotoxins that are considered to be the most dangerous to the victim. The short answer is that the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is the deadliest snake in the USA, with the most venom. Sometimes they'll sunbathe to raise temperature. Though many people fear them, snakes are a very important part of our ecosystem. The cottonmouth, also known as a water moccasin or water pit viper, is the only kind of viper that can live in the water. Stop worrying about your health and your home and call us today.
