Snake Removal and Facts

Expert Rattlesnake Removal in Los Angeles

WARNING: NEVER ATTEMPT TO HANDLE OR REMOVE ANY SNAKE. PROVOKING A VENOMOUS SNAKE CAN CAUSE A LIFE-THREATENING BITE. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY!

Snakes are prevalent in the Los Angeles area. As humans move closer to their natural environment, snakes are becoming a more common sight. Animal Capture Wildlife Control specializes in the professional capture and release of common species more often spotted during the summer.
Private property offers the ideal habitat for a snake to seek shelter and find food, including rats and mice. Poisonous rattlesnakes, including the Southern Pacific Rattlesnake, and other snakes are extremely agile. They can access your home through pipes or from under the floor. While a snake will usually seek to escape during an encounter, it may defend itself if startled.
Rattlesnakes are just one of 14 species of snakes found in the Santa Monica Mountains. The southern Pacific rattlesnake is highly venomous. The night snake has a milder venom in its saliva. The gopher snake, California kingsnake, two-striped garter snake, patch-nosed snake, blind snake, ringneck snake, yellow-bellied racer, and mountain kingsnake are non-venomous but can still pack a serious bite that ruins a perfect summer day.

Snake Safety Tips

Many snakes provide a warning before an attack. However, this isn’t always the case. When snakes strike, they do so fast. For example, a rattlesnake can bite in 1/25 of a second. That’s faster than you can blink your eyes. They can also reach up to half their body length, so even if it seems you are a safe distance away, think again.

You can protect yourself from a rattlesnake encounter by:

  • Checking for reports of snake activity
  • Staying on well-traveled trails
  • Avoiding tall grass, weeds, and other hiding spots
  • Avoiding wandering around in the dark
  • Stepping onto rocks/fallen trees rather than over them
  • Not placing your hands where you can’t see
  • Wearing long, loose pants and high-top boots

During a rattlesnake encounter:

  • Stop moving
  • Locate it before moving away
  • Move away slowly, with a hiking pole in front of you

If you are bitten, stay calm and restrict your movement. Resting will decrease your heart rate and the rate at which venom flows through your body. Wash the bite area immediately using soap and water or an antiseptic wipe, and immediately seek medical treatment. Remove any rings or watches that can restrict swelling. You can also wrap an affected extremity using a technique known as pressure immobilization—this is a first-aid technique to delay venom absorption.
