  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Hanover 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 Ashland animal control for wildlife issues.

Ashland Wildlife Removal Tip: What animals catch and kill snakes?

We all recognize that snakes can be dangerous predators. If you have watched any wildlife movies about these reptiles, seen them at the zoo, or even have a snake as a pet, you are quite aware that they can be as aggressive and predatory as any animal on earth. They truly are beasts that fear very few things.

However, I snake is not invincible to other animals on the planet. In fact, many are predators to the snakes, using them as food when they are hungry, or simply killing them to ensure that they pose no risk to that animal. If this makes you wonder what animals catch and kill snakes, here are a few you may want to know about.

Of course, one of the most dangerous animals to the snake is man. People have no problem catching, killing, and even eating these reptiles. In fact, those who live in the desert area often eat these reptiles because there are very few other sources of food available to them. This even includes the devouring of rattlesnakes and diamondbacks.

Depending upon the size, some of the most common types of rodents will eat snakes as well. This means that rats, squirrels, raccoons, possums, and skunks all enjoy eating snakes for food. In fact, they will aggressively hunt smaller size snakes, such as the gardener snake, and eat it for their meal.

Bigger sized animals that are predators and carnivores enjoy snakes as well. This includes wolves, coyotes, foxes, and other members of the dog family. Even your own canine may be willing to eat a snake at times, should it catch it. Members of the cat family are not exempt from devouring these reptiles either. Animals such as the lynx, cheetah, and other kinds of cats will find a snake to be an enjoyable meal. Even your own cat may attempt to capture a snake, but may not actually eat it. It may simply look at the snake as some kind of toy to enjoy playing with, much the same way that it would play with a piece of string.

The birds of the air will also eat a snake, especially some of the more predatory types such as an owl, hawk, and eagle. In fact, because of the ability of these creatures to come from great heights and move with great quickness and agility, they are often the ones who have the easiest time being able to capture and eat a snake. They swooped down, grab the reptile with their talons, and grip it to carry it back to their nest where it becomes a meal for themselves and their young if they have any.

There are many different kinds of snakes that will eat other species of snakes. The more dangerous kinds, such as diamondbacks, cobras, and rattlesnakes, have no problem capturing a smaller sized snake and killing it to make a meal out of it. This is very common in many areas, as a snake is simply looking for another source of meat to devour.
