Snakes come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They can range from just a few feet in length to several meters in length. Being cold-blooded creatures, snakes prefer warmer climates. With Wisconsin cold winters and warm summers, snakes are typically only active during the spring and summer months. The biggest concern with snakes is if they are venomous or not? Luckily, out of the 21 species of snakes in Wisconsin, only two are venomous and both of them live in the southwestern part of the state. 

Snakes can be very beneficial animals to have around in your yard. They are great at rodent control. The most common snake you will find in Wisconsin is the garter snake which is basically harmless. Garter snakes are not venomous, but they will bite you if provoked and picked up. Garter snake bites are harmless and may leave an itchy, tingling feeling but it is nothing to worry about.

Are Snakes a Concern?

Snakes can be a benefit to have around your yard for natural rodent control. The snakes we have here in Wisconsin are practically harmless. If you come across a snake in your yard, we recommend to just leave it alone. However, if snakes are becoming a nuisance, our technicians at Advanced Wildlife Control can easily help remove the snake(s). We have even removed a red-tailed boa constrictor from a client’s apartment. The pet snake escaped from its owner and slithered into another apartment. 

Our goal here at Advanced Wildlife Control is to make sure your animal control problems are taken care of as quickly as possible. Therefore, we can be out at your property on the same day when you call or the next day. We do not require any contracts for our customers. 

DID YOU KNOW? – Snakes smell with their tongues.

The breeding season for most snakes here in Wisconsin is in the spring. A garter snake can have up to 80 offspring that hatch from their eggs in late summer. During the breeding season is also when you can find large groups of garter snakes looking for a mate to breed with. 

Snakes can be found throughout Wisconsin. Snakes can be found in a variety of areas from forests, fields, meadows, ponds, under rocks, and more.
