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 Nansemond 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 Suffolk animal control for wildlife issues.

Suffolk Wildlife Removal Tip: What to do if you get bitten by a snake

There are few animals on earth that can create as much panic in a human being as snakes. Because several of these reptiles are poisonous, there is a genuine concern when a person comes in contact with them. One bite can be life-threatening to you and your children, and this is why there is a natural fear of these creatures.

The fear goes well beyond this, however. Most simply don't like the look of a snake, and find them to be the kind of animal that is as unappealing as it can get. They don't care that the vast majority of these creatures are not dangerous in any way. They simply don't want them around, and would preferred that snakes stay as far away from their yard as possible.

Where the panic really starts to set in is when a person is out in their yard, on a hike, or traveling along a trail and is bitten by one of these reptiles. Instantly, they start to worry about what are the potential risks they now face, as the fear rises within them. This is a good time to know what you should do if you are bitten by a snake.

No matter what kind of snake it is, you should seek immediate medical attention regardless. It's just the safe thing to do. Even if this is a non-venomous kind of snake, there are risks that are involved anyway, because snakes, like every other animal, carry pathogens and parasites that can be dangerous to people and their pets. This is why it simply makes sense to go into the doctor to get checked out.

If you are sure that the snake that is bitten you is non-venomous then you have a little time and don't need to get yourself all worked up. This is not an immediate danger for you, but you still should be deliberate. Clean the area where you have been bitten with rubbing alcohol or some kind of antiseptic, bandage it, and see the doctor as soon as possible. This ensures that you protect yourself from any diseases that the reptile may be carrying.

Of course, if you are talking about a venomous snake, then you need to spring into action as quickly as possible. Literally minutes can make a huge difference at this point and this is why you need to get medical attention right away.

Before heading to the doctor, it is important that you place a tourniquet around the area where you are someone you know has been bitten to avoid the poison being able to circulate through the bloodstream. If possible, attempt to suck out the poison from the location where the person was bit. You also want to keep this person as calm as possible, to ensure that the poison does not spread due to the hard accelerating.

Contact emergency medical personnel to assist you so that you can get to the hospital as quickly as possible. Literally, in its matter here, so you need to act as quickly and safely as possible.
