Professional Snake Control
While the majority of snakes are harmless, South Carolina is home to a few highly venomous species that need to be handled with extreme care. Our technicians have the training and tools to safely evict the snake.
How We Remove Snakes
The snake removal process begins with a thorough inspection, looking for signs of snake activity and identifying how they are gaining access to your home.
If visible, our animal control technicians will use snake tongs to safely capture and remove your problem snake. Otherwise, we will deploy snake traps or snake repellent.
Snake Relocation & Exclusion
After capture, the snake will be relocated and the holes which the snake used to gain access to your home will be sealed up to prevent future infestation.

How did snakes get into my home?
Snakes do not make holes in structures, and so if you have a snake inside of your attic or walls then it found its way there through an existing hole.
Our technicians will find and seal their entry point, as well as check for signs of a rodent infestation. Oftentimes, snakes enter our homes in search of a meal because a rodent population has already taken up residence!
What are common snakes in and around Columbia, SC?
There are 36 different species of snake native to South Carolina, thirty of which are non-venomous.
Common Non-venomous snakes:
- Black racer
- Eastern coachwhip
- Rough earth snake
- Eastern garter snake
- Rat snake
- Venomous snakes:
- Eastern diamondback rattlesnake
- Cottonmouth (also known as water moccasin)
- Timber rattlesnake
- Pygmy rattlesnake
Of these venomous species, only the copperhead and diamondback are relatively common. The others are native to the region but are rarely encountered. In coastal regions you may encounter the coral snake – but these snakes are not found in the Midlands.
Rather than focussing on snake identification, we recommend that homeowners contact a professional snake removal service.
What are some signs of a snake problem?
The two most common signs of snakes are:
- Physical Sightings: The most obvious sign of a snake problem is actually seeing a snake in your yard, home, or property.
- Shed Skins: Snakes shed their skin as they grow, so finding snake skins around your property is a sign that snakes are present. Check places like basements, garages, and other secluded areas where snakes might like to hide.
