Snakes are carnivorous reptiles characterized by their lack of legs, eyelids, and external ears. Most species of snake do not make use of venom to kill or subdue their prey. However, in Southern Ontario a rarely encountered species of snake called the Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake contains venom harmful to humans. More frequently encountered are smaller snakes such as the Eastern Garter Snake, which are found in wet or moist environments preying upon frogs, fish, worms, or mice.

Snake Control

Snake removal and control is often improperly executed.  Typical pest control companies primarily manage invertebrates and small mammals.  These types of pests may be managed with poisons; however, snakes cannot be effectively controlled in this way.  Pest issues involving snakes require be trapping and removal by wildlife control experts, such as our qualified Nimby employees. Many species of snakes in Ontario are nearing extinction because many of their natural habitats have been eliminated or they have been hunted as dangerous animals by misinformed people.  When in doubt about your snake problem, call a Nimby professional.
