Rat snakes or the common Black Snake are one of my favorite snakes in Charleston WV just because they are so fascinating. For one thing they don't need the sun to metabolize their foods. this means that they don't have to be out in the sun to digest their meals. they hang out in crawl spaces and even attics for months at a time where other snakes would need to come and go.

So its no wonder that I am called on most of my reptile calls to remove them.

Although typically a very dark almost black top with pasterns blended in the scales and usually have a light underbelly, in youth their patterns are more present and are most often confused with Copperhead in Charleston West Virginia.

Very territorial, they will kill , even consume any snake that would happen into there areas. As fierce hunters they can set up ambush in almost any place. they have great eye to boot. this is way it is very beneficial to allow their presence if at all possible.. "better a black snake than a poisonous snake farmers used to say" , it is actually true.

Although I love these amazing creatures, they have no place in our homes.This is why The wildlife Professionals of West Virginia are here! we are great at removing and even excluding them form your house to avoid future occurrences.

Snake Removal in Charleston West Virginia

I love snakes!!! I love everything about them! We have been in Wildlife removal and animal control for over ten years in the greater Charleston WV area.

I get so excited when I get a snake removal call in Charleston West Virginia because I know that it is usually a black snake or a rat snake that is causing the snake removal issue and these guys are amazing and I do everything I can to preserve and protect them, remove them and make sure you never have an issue with them again.

The rat snake does not need the sun to metabolize or digest their food; which depending on their age is insects, lizards or rodents. This means that the rat snake can live in a crawlspace or in the attic for long periods of time.

So it is no coincidence I get snake removal calls in Charleston West Virginia for the common black snake, either from seeing a snake in the garage, a snake in the attic, snake skin in the attic, snake in the yard, snake on the deck, snake in the pool, snake in the hot tub, snake trap, how to trap a snake, How do I get rid of snakes? Who gets rid of snakes? I am trying cover the basis of snake removal here. SO people such as you have a fantastic person or company to help you instead of a marketing company that will just send anyone! When it comes to snake control we can literally send a British man that loves snakes as much as me to come! no I am not making this up! Chris is amazing he loves snakes as much or mabe more than I do!
