Ways To Know You Have Snakes In Your Home.
Many consider snakes one of the deadliest animals so far, but here is the truth about snakes.
Not all snakes are dangerous; in fact, snakes are actually wonderful creatures that contribute greatly to their local ecosystem. While many people have an illogical fear of snakes, the truth of the matter is that in most cases, snakes are more afraid of you than you are of them. So, the most common recourse for a snake that ventures into your home is to hide.
This is where it becomes problematic; if you’ve spotted a snake, it can be difficult to detect where it has gone into hiding. What’s even more difficult is finding out if there is a snake in your house without ever coming into any contact with it.
But best ways to know you have a snake in your home, without knowing it is there.
Here are some signs.
Shedding or molted skin – many snakes, both venomous and non-venomous, molt to grow bigger. If you find molting in your house, there is a strong chance that there is a snake around.
Weird noises in dark, cramped places – unexpected noises coming from flooring areas may indicate the presence of a snake, as they have a propensity to seek out small, dark, and often damp places to lay eggs or just to hide. These places could be anywhere in your house, such as a cellar, an attic, or even an extra bathroom that doesn’t see much activity.
The mysterious absence of rodents – if you observed mice or rats around your home from time to time, but you don’t see them anymore, and you didn’t put down any traps, there is a chance that you may have a snake (or two) in the house.
If you ever do find a snake in your home, immediately remove any children and pets from the area, maintain a safe distance, try to keep your eyes on the snake, and call for help.
