Snakes can be sneaky and scary! What makes them even more scary is the fact that they can find their way into your home through ways that will shock you especially during the dry season. Snakes can fit through very small spaces, and often pursue their prey or a place to lay eggs indoors. Here are five scary ways snakes enter houses and what you can do to stop it.
Through Cracks and Gaps Around Doors
Gaps between the doors in your home can provide one of the most common entry points for snakes. For snakes, even very small gaps provide easy access to get into your homes where they seek food, such as rats and mice that may have gone ahead of them, or a safe place to lay eggs.
Through Gaps Between Brick and Siding
Snakes can get inside your home by slipping between bricks if mortar is missing and also between bricks and siding on the exterior of your home. Gaps between siding and stone veneers, brick or any similar material should be repaired to prevent moisture damage and stop snakes from gaining entry.
Inside Large Plants
Snakes can live inside the pot or container of a large plant. If you have large potted plants outside your home, on your patio or porch that you bring inside regularly, it might be worth poking around in the dirt before you bring them inside, just in case.
Enticed Up to your roof by Prey
Snakes climbing into roofs is such a common problem that pest removal services regularly encounter it. Climbing snakes are usually lured into roofs by the smell of rats, so making sure there is no reason for a snake to want to climb into your roof is important. Also, make sure any gaps are sealed to help stop this problem.
