Many of New York'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 New York'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 Warren 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 Queensbury animal control for wildlife issues.

Queensbury Wildlife Removal Tip: The Water Moccasin Snake: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

The water moccasin snakes are one of the most commonly known snakes in the United States and many people refer them to the cottonmouth snakes as well. There are many other variations as well like cottonmouth moccasin, highland water moccasin, and North American water moccasin. They have obtained this name because of the bright lining in their mouth that works like a warning for predators and preys as well.


These snakes are always curious to find a prey around; they can even eat up some dead animals to find desired nourishment. Some of the major preferences are fishes, but they can also target small alligators, toads, birds, snails, and bird eggs as well. Some of these larger snakes also prefer to consume smaller snakes, even within their species. The juvenile creatures in this snake family usually search for their prey by moving their tail.


Experts reveal that water mosaic snakes can be as large as up to 30-48 inches, but in few cases, people have also seen the larger ones up to 74 inches as well. Their belly used to be paler in shade whereas the back portion usually has black or some darker appearance. Note that the younger cottonmouth snakes can be identified from bands on their body and they also have paler centers. The pattern usually fades with the age of the snake. Their nostril has a dark vertical line.


These snakes are considered as nocturnal creatures because they often move out in the night hours, but many of these can also be seen in the sunlight as well. Most of the time they prefer to stay underwater as it helps them to maintain the desired temperature range for their body so that they can have better digestion. The moccasin snakes don't like to attack anyone, but if you irritate them, they will definitely get aggressive.


You can easily find these snakes in the southern part of the United States but from past few years; their presence is also reported in the Florida, Virginia, and east to west Texas as well. These creatures are semi-aquatic in nature; hence, they can be found in the water and field as well. Some experts also report that these snakes can also live happily in the swamps, streams, marshes and drainage ditches as well.


Water moccasin snakes are venomous snakes, and they produce it in the specially designed venom glands in the body. It is available at the joint where upper and lower jaws join each other. The moment when it strikes, the fangs get inserted into the muscles and then it releases the venom into those fangs to kill the prey. They take a few seconds to kill small prays and hence are considered as good hunters. If you live in the moccasin snake affected area, it is good to make sure that your kids do not roam anywhere around because you never know where these snakes might be hidden in your outdoors.
