Snakes can be one the most beneficial animals in Virginia. They help by keeping our rodent population in check. However, snakes pose a huge problem to homeowners and wildlife professionals in Richmond and Charlottesville, as well as other areas of Virginia. Most snakes are very shy and inhabit inaccessible places that are hard to access. Most people have snakes in their homes and never realize it. One thing that 98 % of our Virginia snake calls have in common is that most of the time there is a rodent problem in the home. One key thing to do when dealing with a snake in your Virginia home is to try and determine what it’s doing there, what it’s eating and what stage of growth it’s in. Those are the 3 key factors in helping a professional animal control and wildlife removal technician determine a program to eliminate your snake problem. Very rarely will removing a snake from the home completely solve your problem. Contact Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services, LLC at (804) 457-2883 to schedule a snake inspection with one of our technicians.

A total of 25 copperhead snakes have been removed in Virginia from areas of a 200 foot retaining wall made out of railroad ties. The homeowner now wants the entire retaining wall removed and replaced. It is unbelievable to have found such a large concentration of copperhead snakes in Virginia this time of year from such a small area.
Fortunately, there are only 3 species of snakes in Virginia that are venomous. They are the copperhead snake, water moccasin snake and the timber rattlesnake. Most people refer to these snakes as poisonous snakes, but the correct term is venomous. We receive well over 100 snake calls a year and most people identify their problem snake as a copperhead snake. In fact most of these snake calls end up being a common rat snake or a black racer snake. Some people refer to these snakes collectively as black snakes.
