Snakes In Attics

Many people are surprised to find out that snakes can climb walls. It is not uncommon to see a snake wiggling through a weep hole to get into a garage, or scaling a wall to access an attic. They are particularly tempted to follow rodents, bats, or any other wildlife small enough to eat, straight into your home. We are snake control experts and can help you with preventative steps, snake removal, and any additional snake control needs that you may have.

Snakes Climbing Walls

Raccoons, squirrels and rats are not the only wildlife that can make it into your attic – snakes can too. Snakes tend to go where rodents do and if you have mice or rats in your attic chances are that a snake will eventually catch their scent and go in after them - even if it means climbing a wall.

It is easier for snakes to climb up a rough surface than it is a smooth one, the surface of a tree or brick wall is particularly helpful to snakes, as seen in the photo below of a snake going up a brick wall on the side of a house.

The snake videos below also show how easily a snake can climb a wall.

Snakes often use trees to access attics via the roof, also seen in th videose below. Snakes have also been known to climb outside walls to access the upper regions of your home.

When snakes climbing walls around your house becomes a problem, it is best to call in a professional. The use of a glue trap to catch this snake in an attic cost this particular client a lot of money... while still on the glue traps, the snake managed to fall down into a wall.

The entire house smelled like dead fish rotting. The glue trap and snake were found at chest level in the wall. Glue boards caught half way up a wall are difficult to find, remove and troubleshoot.
