Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Prince George's county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Clinton animal control for wildlife issues.

Clinton Wildlife Removal Tip: Why You Should Not Grab a Snake by Your Bare Hands

If a small snake intrudes your home, it might be instinctive for you to grab it by the hand, thanks to all the discovery or animal planet documentaries you have watched. But even if you are feeling brave, it might not be a good idea to do that, if you are not an expert. Question yourself if you have enough knowledge about the many types of snakes and whether or not you can tell just by looking at them if they are poisonous or not. If the answer is negative, the advice for you is to steer clear of the snake invading your house. Read Below to know the hazards that grabbing a snake by bare hands may cause.

The Snake Might Attack

There are a great variety of snakes in the world, there are about 3000 species. Though snakes are usually categorized into three basic groups the non venomous, the venomous and the mildly venomous you can never tell for sure whether a snake is venomous or not just by looking at it. Snakes are usually peace-loving creatures, though they often scare people more than the other reptiles. But they do attack when being attacked. Therefore, if you try to handle a snake by your bare hands, you might get scratched or worse, bitten by them.

Poisonous Saliva

Even when the snakes are not necessarily poisonous, they might often have poisonous saliva. So even if it does not bite you, their saliva can be extremely dangerous for your body. It might cause infections and what not.

Hygiene Problems

Snakes are reptiles that literally crawl through everywhere. So, it's just bad hygienic decisions to touch them with your bare hands. You body will come into contact with the many vile bacteria and spread disease. The bacteria can very easily enter your body through the scratches. The snake mostly carries a great number of saliva in their mouth, so being bitten or being scratched by their teeth can be extremely hazardous for your health.

Therefore, it is certainly better if you use a hook and clamp stick to catch a snake. Or if you are confident enough, wear a pair gloves at least to handle the snake. Do not be fooled by the size of the snake, sometimes even if the snake is small, it can be very poisonous, especially the garter snakes that usually enter houses. Keep in mind that when you watch on TV that snakes are easily being lifted by bare hands, do know that the people who are doing it are experts. They handle the snake very gently, in order to refrain from hurting them or aggravating them. If you try to grab a snake by your hand, you are not only putting yourself in harm's way but also your children and/or pets that the snake might attack in case it's free. Therefore, it is always advisable to contact an expert in such cases.
