Many of Wyoming'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 Wyoming'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 Teton 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 Jackson Hole animal control for wildlife issues.

Jackson Hole Wildlife Removal Tip: COPPERHEAD SNAKE

Copperhead snakes are venomous pit vipers very common in the Eastern United States and Mexico. They usually grow to be between 20 to 37 inches long, but some may exceed three feet in length. It has a stout body with a thin neck and a broad head, its snout slopes back, making the top jaw longer than the bottom one. It is generally a light tan or pinkish color and has crossband markings along its body, that are dark on the outside and lighter in the center. These markings are evenly spaced along the snake's body and are wider on the sides of the body than on its back. It has two sensory pits on its head that helps its detect heat emitted by its prey, hence the name of pit viper.

The Copperhead snake is also called the highland moccasin, the dry land moccasin, chunk head or narrow banded copperhead. It can be found in many states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Nebraska, Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. It likes to live in forests with rocky outcroppings and ledges where it can bask in the sun, it can also be found in marshy areas or near bodies of water where prey is always easy to find.

During the summer, it is quite active during the night, preferring to bask during the day or stay away in its den if it gets too hot. During the cold summer months, it hibernates in its den, keeping as warm as it can by using up its reserves of energy stored in its body. They usually hibernate in groups.

They mate in the spring and give birth to live young in mid-summer. A Female can give birth to about 4 to 8 inch snakes every summer. The young basically look the same as the adults, with the difference that the tip of their tale is yellow, thought to lure lizards and other reptiles to them in an attempt to help them hunt during their first few months.

Copperheads are ambush predators, this means that they don't generally go actively hunting, but wait patiently in wait for their prey to come within reach. They mainly eat rodents and large insects or frogs.

Though venomous, the Copperhead is rarely lethal to humans. It is not a very aggressive snake and will prefer to hide than to attack if it senses danger, this being said it will eventually bite if stepped on or handled, but generally administers a “warning bite” first, which has little to no venom. This doesn't mean that the bite is not very painful, and even a small dose of venom can cause a lot of damage to muscles and bone tissue. A Copperhead bite must be treated by a medical professional immediately to prevent permanent damage to the bitten area.
