Snake Biology: Snakes are thin. Their organs are spread out and long, they only use one lung. They have no external ears, but can sense vibrations. They smell via flickers of a forked tongue. The fork gives the smell a sense of direction, and is processed by the Jacobson's organ. They move via lateral undulation or rectilinear motion. All snakes are carnivores. They can often unhinge the lower jaw on order to swallow large prey. Some lay eggs, some give birth to live young.

Nuisance Concerns: Only the Western Rattlesnake is venomous. For the most part, sssnakesss are harmlessss. However, many people simply do not like snakes, or even have real phobias. If you have a snake in your house or even on your property that you want to get rid of, we can come and catch it.


Snake droppings - If you saw a snake in your yard, do not assume that you will soon be knee-deep in reptile droppings. Snakes excrete solid waste as often as they eat food, and that time frame can be days, weeks, or months depending on the snake. Even with numerous snakes on your property, you will not be encountering droppings in mass quantities. That being said, snake droppings are not like many droppings from other carnivores. Yes, you will have the fur, bones, and teeth that cannot be digested, but you also have a strange mixture of white urea and liquid excrement. Snakes have a cloaca, a single opening at the base of the tail for both liquid and solid elimination. This dual excrement means that snake droppings are usually a pile of soppy mush. It is often easier to try to figure out what animals could also leave similar droppings to the ones you have found. If you come across a more likely culprit, look at the region you found the droppings in. Rodents will not leave fecal material like a snake, so if the poop is found inside the home, you may have a snake inside.
