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 Dinwiddie county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Petersburg animal control for wildlife issues.

Petersburg Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep snakes out of your basement

Your home is supposed to be the place where you can enjoy peace and solitude from the outside world. It is the location where you closed the front door to your home, sit back in your chair or laid in bed, and allow the cares of the world to simply disappear.

The problem is that several kinds of animals may find your home to be the ideal location for them to go to as well. They see your attic, walls, or closets to be a great place to build a nest, have a family, and sleep peacefully at night knowing they are protected from the vast majority of predators that would attempt to hunt them. This can turn your beautiful, peaceful home into a house of nightmares.

One such creature that will frequently try to build a home inside of your home is a snake. They are most commonly found in the basement in people's homes, because of their inability to really climb, meaning they need a location where it is easy to gain access from the ground. Your basement is ideal.

However, it is likely that you would prefer that a snake was not setting up residence within your house. This may make you wonder, how do you keep snakes out of your basement?

The first thing that you need to do to keep a snake from gaining access into your home is to do a thorough search around the exterior to make sure that there are no gaps, cracks, loose boards, holes, or other entryway that a snake can use to be able to get into your home. The likelihood is that, over time, your home has fallen into disrepair in some way, giving the snake the ability to gain access quite easily into your house.

Consider that it does not take much space one of these reptiles to be able to gain access. Even a half inch can be enough for many of these species of snakes to be able to crawl their way through and into your home. Doing a thorough search around the foundation will make sure that you are denying them access. If you find such a location, you want to spend some time properly ceiling and ensuring the animal can't get back in.

Also, another way that a snake may gain access is if you are leaving windows open. If your screen is damaged in some way or if you do not have a screen, this is the perfect means that the snake can use to be able to get inside your basement area. Once again, consider that the smallest gap that is available for it to use can be the perfect entryway for the snake to get into your home. Make sure windows closed tightly, they have a screen that has no gaps or rips in it, so that the snake cannot get in.

What you need to consider is that it is the normal wear and tear that a house indoors that gives a snake a chance to get into your house. Fix up any issues and you will not have a problem again.
