Houston Snake Removal & Control

Eek! A snake! You've spotted a snake! Stay calm. There's a good chance that the snake is completely harmless. It's true that there are several species of venomous snake in Houston, but harmless snakes are much more common. Most of the venomous snakes in Texas are rattlesnakes, so if the snake you see isn't thick with a rattle on its tail, there's a good chance that it's safe. However, under no circumstances should you attempt to pick up, handle, or capture any snake yourself, if you do not know how to properly identify it. If you are unsure, just leave the snake alone. Snakes do not make unprovoked attacks. Most bites come when people try to pick up or kill snakes.

Houston Snake Removal Tip
What is a simple remedy to get rid of Texas snakes - Getting rid of Houston snakes is as simple as you’d hoped it would be. You don’t have to worry about any elaborate scheme; the tools you need are right in your own back yard. The yard is the most important part about keeping snakes away, and all you have to do is alter your landscape to discourage these reptiles. Keep in mind that you will never be snake-free unless you erect a sturdy fence. Since that is too costly for most homeowners, keeping snakes out starts with one simple task: mowing your yard. Long grass is the favorite part of your property for a Houston snake. Yes, thick, lush grass looks great to the neighbors, but it will conceal snakes and encourage the proliferation of their food sources. Lots of tiny things like to live in tall grass. Once your grass is short, you need to make sure your gardens are equally manicured. A snake might brave the short grass if it means making it to the shadowed garden. Try to select plants that are tall and leave the ground exposed. At the very least, keep your gardens away from the house where snakes can take an interest in your foundation and patio.

Texas Snake Education: What is the snake’s natural diet and how does it get its food?

The constant urge to survive for another day is what propels living things to look for food. Different animals feed or different organisms. This is because the feeding, nutritional and digestive structure of different animals is designed to help it consume its prey in the easiest manner possible. They also have different methods in which they acquire food. Feeding is a very important characteristic of a living thing. It is the anchor that helps all the other characteristics like moving, reproduction and excretion take place in the smoothest way there is.

Like any other living organism, Houston snakes have to also feed to sustain themselves and help themselves survive. Texas snakes also have developed methods in which they acquire their food. They feed on rodents, little reptiles, birds and frogs. These are organisms whose physical structures can easily be digested by the snake’s digestive system. Their sizes also allow them to be perfect prey for the snake since they can easily fit into the snake’s mouth. They provide nutritional benefit to the snakes hence helping it survive.

A snake is one of the animals that are said to be carnivorous reptiles. This means that their diet does not consist of vegetables at all. They only feed on live organisms that are made of flesh. The largest snakes like the anaconda eat large animals like chickens. Normal sized snakes eat small animals like frogs and mice while the smallest of snakes eat insects and tiny invertebrates.

Most snakes in the world feed on rodents and small birds. They do this by biting the small animals with their fangs and releasing poisonous venom which leave the prey vulnerable, ready to be eaten. Some snakes also have very strong special muscles around their bodies which help them squeeze another animal till the bones break and leave them feeble enough to be eaten. These two techniques of squeezing and using venom to capture prey are very important because they enable swallowing the small animal to be easy. If the animals being swallowed were not unconscious or immobilized, they would resist the swallowing act and maybe hurt the snake in the process.

Some snakes also feed on eggs. These eggs can either be other animals’ eggs or another Texas snake’s eggs. The eggs themselves are animals though they are still at an early stage of development. People

Many people ask how a snake is capable of swallowing prey that is three times the size of its head. Well it is very simple. The lower jaw of the snake is capable of being separated from the upper jaw. Special muscles hold them together and they allow the jaws to stretch open till the space is large enough to accommodate the immobilized prey.
