The good news about snakes is that running into them is fairly rare. Despite their fearsome reputation, most species of snakes are shy and do not want to confront humans. Most will not seek out humans, and if they do attack, it is done for defensive reasons because they have been stepped on or their habitat has been disturbed.
However, snakes do sometimes end up around houses and buildings and do need some control and therefore, removal. If you find snakes on your property the best bet to deal with them and help with snake prevention is call a professional snake control services provider.

Some Snake Information
How to Know if You Have Snakes
Snakes like to hide, so you may not know they are around until you actually see them. Snakes shed their skins several times a year, so one of the first signs might be the shed skins they leave behind. If you live in an area that is dusty or have a yard that is mostly dirt, you might also see twisty trails as they slither along.
Snakes like to hide in heavy vegetation and under porches, decks, piles of rocks and in holes. Be on the lookout around your property, and if you live in an area where snakes are common, approach them with caution.
Control and Safety
The best way to control snake populations is to remove potential sources of food and shelter. Clearing yards of refuse piles and frequently mowing grass helps discourage snakes from making their homes in residential lawns. Sealing up cracks and gaps along exterior walls with fine mesh or caulk also proves effective.
To eliminate potential food sources, take steps to control rodent and insect populations, such as maintaining clean living spaces and storing food in rodent-proof containers. In areas with high native snake populations, snake-proof fences may be erected to keep the slithery pests away from children in play areas, though enclosing entire yards with snake-proof fencing often proves prohibitively expensive.
