Most people are bitten when trying to kill or handle a snake. As a general
rule, snakes are just as frightened of you as possibly you are of them. Often
they move as quickly as possible in the other direction. Snakes cause no
property damage, but seeing a snake or its shed (skin) may frighten some people.
Snakes are seen more often in the spring or fall as they search for food or
move to and from a hibernation area. Snakes frequently are associated with small
mammal habitat because rodents are a primary food source. For this reason snakes
are considered beneficial to man.
There are two forms of control measures that can be taken (non-lethal and
lethal). The difference is that while non-lethal measures can be taken at any
time, lethal measures can only be taken when a snake is seen.
Non-lethal Orlando snake control measures are the most commonly practiced forms of
control. Snakes can be discouraged from staying in an area by cutting off their
food supply and cover. Mow closely around homes and outbuildings, and store
firewood and lumber away from residences. Reduce mulch layers around shrubs to
about 2 to 3 inches in depth to discourage small animals. Close cracks and
crevices in buildings and around pipes and utility connections with 1/4-inch
mesh hardware cloth, mortar or sheet metal. All doors and windows should have
tightly fitting screens.
