Placer Snake Removal is a safe, humane snake removal service for the western Placer, western El Dorado, and the eastern Sacramento county region. We’re committed to the safe capture and relocation of any native snake, including rattlesnakes, on a 24/7 basis. Aside from emergency rattlesnake removal, we also offer thorough property inspections, to sweep through and remove any rattlesnakes (and/or any species requested), check for problematic spots, and give you information about what you may be able to do to limit future run-ins and such.
We are not a capture and kill service, as stated above. We relocate all the snakes we remove, seeing how killing them is simply not needed once they’ve been safely captured. Snakes are an important part of the ecosystem, and if they’re to be decimated, we would have bigger problems than the occasional snake traveling into a backyard/property, including increasing rodent populations and rodent borne diseases. Plus, they won’t harm you if you don’t harm or toy with them, in fact, they avoid contact with humans and predators in general as much as possible by hanging out in places where it’s easy for them to escape. If you don’t like the idea of a rattlesnake in your yard, have pets or children who frequent the yard/property, work in your yard often, or simply have too many on your property it’s hard to avoid them, well, that’s where we come in!
We do what average pest control companies don’t: remove snakes completely unharmed and relocate the snakes to open areas where they can thrive with little threat of them wandering back to housed areas. Some pest control companies claim they work rattlesnake issues, but will probably end up using ineffective repellents, or traps that inhumanely injure or slowly kill snakes. Snakes aren’t your typical pest anyway, they’re key predators to the ecosystem and don’t wander onto your property/yard/house to scavenge or try to harm you, they’re wandering seeking prey animals (generally rodents), water, or shelter. This is becoming more and more common due to urban development in places snakes have lived in for generations.
We offer all of our services throughout western Placer & El Dorado County, as well as eastern Sacramento county, which includes the following cities: Rocklin, Roseville, Lincoln, Loomis, Penryn, Newcastle, Auburn, Granite Bay, Folsom, Fair Oaks, Rancho Cordova, El Dorado Hills, Shingle Springs, Cameron Park, Diamond Springs, Placerville, Coloma, Pilot Hill, and any cities/towns between.
We can and will go outside of our normal coverage area, but only for rattlesnake-related issues.
I founded Placer Snake Removal specifically work with snakes and help out people don’t want to deal with them. I’ve had a deep interest in reptiles/herpetology since I was young, and noticed rattlesnakes (and even plenty of non-venomous snakes) that wander into people’s yards, homes, and businesses often get killed, just for seeking some food, water, or shelter. Rattlesnakes don’t want to come into contact with people, and don’t realize when they venture into housed areas that they are risking their life if discovered, and also risking the health of people not looking where they put their hands and feet.
So, instead of killing that snake, why not give it a chance to live elsewhere and let us come on out to safely remove it, check around for more, and share what may be some valuable information about that snake and how to possibly lower chances of future run-ins?
What are we? We're a safe, humane rattlesnake removal service covering western Placer and El Dorado counties, as well as eastern Sacramento county. In addition to emergency/immediate rattlesnake removal, we offer extensive property inspections to point out trouble spots and remove rattlesnakes if any are found.
