Many of Ohio'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 Ohio'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 Franklin 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 Westerville animal control for wildlife issues.

Westerville Wildlife Removal Tip: PYGMY RATTLESNAKE

Just like its name might suggest, the Pygmy Rattlesnake is often one of the smallest pit vipers to be found. Only reaching between fourteen and twenty-two inches at a time, this snake seems as if it wouldn't be dangerous at all, mostly due to its small size. It can be just as dangerous as a regular rattlesnake, though, if not more so due to its size.

The Pygmy Rattler typically has a geographical range that is like its larger-sized contemporary. Often, they are found in the southeastern United States, from the southern and eastern areas of North Carolina, south through the peninsular Florida, and west to eastern Texas and Oklahoma. Typically, this species inhabits flatwoods, sandhills, mixed forests, and floodplains; they prefer staying around large bodies of water, though, staying near both lakes and marshes, as well.

While this snake being smaller is helpful to it when trying to find new prey, it can be dangerous to humans. Since the Pygmy Rattler is so much smaller than other snakes, and its rattle can only be heard as a buzz from a few feet away, it makes it much easier for an unsuspecting human to come upon one quickly. While Pygmy Rattlers are typically unable to produce a good amount of venom, meaning that their bite will not be fatal to an adult human, it does cause a good bit of bleeding at the site. These snakes often also will strike multiple times in the same attack, meaning that if you are bitten, you should immediately seek out medical care. While bites involving adults often are not as serious, children are more likely to have a prolonged hospitalization due to a bite, as well as having reports of necrosis of the bite site.

Pygmy Rattlers' temperaments can vary amongst the snakes themselves, as well, meaning that you should always be cautious when finding one. Some may be quite aggressive, striking furiously, while others may seem lethargic, or not even attempt to rattle when crossed by humans. This can change from snake to snake, though, making it difficult to gauge their reactions ahead of time.

The Pygmy Rattler's diet is most carnivorous, consisting of many different animals, including mice, small rats, squirrels, birds and other reptiles, as well as lizards, frogs, toads, and other snakes. Sometimes, these snakes will often eat insects as well, when food supplies are scarce.

Like most other pit vipers, Pygmy Rattlers will give birth to live young, as opposed to laying eggs. Usually, the female will give birth to a brood of between five and eight younglings. These snakes often look slightly different from their older counterparts, as well, with a coloration that is lighter in hue than the adults.
