Many of Indiana's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Indiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Madison county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Anderson animal control for wildlife issues.

Anderson Wildlife Removal Tip: The Banded Water Snake

The banded water snake is a reptile that is non-venomous and lives mostly in watery areas, such as in creeks, ponds, and lakes. It is most frequently found in the southeastern and central portions of the United States. The snakes have been found as far north as Indiana, but are frequently found in areas like Louisiana and Florida. In fact, the vast majority of the snakes found in southeastern portion of the United States.

The average adult banded water snake can range in length from 24 inches to 42 inches. The longest of this reptile was 62.5 inches, found in Florida. While the snakes can grow to be rather large in size, they weigh very little, having a svelte one-pound weight on average.

The snakes are typically either gray, a greenish gray color, or brown. They have a series of dark cross bands that go around the body, which is the characteristic for which they are named. Because of their appearance, they are frequently mistaken for other kinds of snakes, some are even venomous in nature, however this is not a venomous form of snake. The cottonmouth is one form of snake that this is frequently confused with.

These are snakes that can be easily irritated, which can be bad for you. While they are not predatory in the sense of attacking you, biting you and releasing some kind of venom into your body, they are able to release a very foul-smelling odor that will keep predators away from them. This can mean you as well, as the odor can be quite obnoxious.

The snakes typically eat fish and frogs as the primary source of their diet. They will eat other kinds of animals, but these are the primary source of their diet, and is the primary reason why they remain around bodies of water.

What separates to snake from many other species of these reptiles is that when they give birth it is actually to living young. They do not go through a period where they are inside an egg of some kind, where the mother snake has to protect them and keep them warm. Instead, they are born in a live birth process, meaning they are ready to begin fending for themselves almost from the time that they are born.

Usually, a mother snake can give birth to between nine and 50 young snakes. The young measure about 8 to 9 inches in total length, and have the ability to see, scaly skin, and teeth so that they are not only able to defend themselves, but search for food on their own. These are not defenseless creatures in any way.

Where you will find these reptiles are around marshes, lakes, ponds, and streams. The primary requirement that they have for survival is that they live near freshwater. This enables them to not only be able to get a source of water, but they simply are unable to survive swimming through saltwater bodies of water.
