Snake removed from a house in Signal Mountain

Most of the time, when snakes get into houses, they're following rodents. Snakes, by definition, are carnivores; and they consider rodents especially tasty. That's one of the reasons why they're overwhelmingly beneficial animals: They help keep the rodents in check. We kind of consider them colleagues in that regard.

This time of the year, snakes may also get into houses looking for a nice place to go into brumation for the winter. Snakes don't hibernate, but many snakes go into a state of decreased activity and metabolism known as brumation for the winter. They need a secure, peaceful place to do this, and sometimes they choose someone's home.

The general rule of thumb for dealing with non-venomous snakes is that it's up to the customer to decide whether they want to allow snakes to brumate in or under their homes. If they're happy with non-venomous snakes living in the crawl space, that's fine. They'll do no harm and some good. If not, we'll relocate them.

Venomous snakes, however, should be removed from homes or other places where people or domestic wildlife are present.

This  harmless snake was removed from a house in Signal Mountain, Tennessee.
