What we are

Placer Snake Removal is a safe, humane rattlesnake removal service available 24/7 across Placer, El Dorado, southern Sierra, northern Amador, and the eastern Sacramento county region for immediate service. Aside from emergency rattlesnake removal, we also offer thorough property inspections to sweep through and remove any rattlesnakes on your property in addition to keeping a tally of any potential problematic spots, letting you know what you may be able to do to try limiting future run-ins with snakes and where to use extra caution. Our inspection services to seek out rattlesnakes are available as far south as the Sonora region in Tuolumne county, far northward to Corning, east into the western slope of the Sierra, and west to Sonoma county encompassing the coastal mountains north of the Bay Area.

How we’re different

We do what average pest control companies don’t: remove snakes completely unharmed and relocate the snakes into uninhabited regions 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 and other animals that accidentally tread over these traps. Snakes aren’t your typical pest anyway, they’re key predators in 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), a mate, or simply some shelter. We treat these animals with the respect they deserve, while realizing they can pose a risk to people and pets in certain situations.
