Snakes encountered on your property or in your home should be left alone.

Do not attempt to handle any snake found in Florida as it may be a venomous snake.

Calling Wildlife Ranger for the capture and removal of the snake is the best solution to your snake issue. We have years of experience and training at both identifying and handling the snakes of Florida.

If possible, try to keep the snake in view until our wildlife operator arrives. This will give us the greatest chance of successfully locating and removing the unwanted snake.

There are 45 species of snakes found in Florida along with 44 subspecies.

Although most of those 45 species will bite if provoked, only 6 species are venomous.

The venomous snakes we come across in Central Florida are the Coral Snake, Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin), Eastern Diamondback Rattler, and the Pygmy Rattler (the Copperhead and Timber Rattlesnake are not native to our area).
