Placer Snake Removal is a safe, humane rattlesnake removal service available 24/7 across western Placer, western El Dorado, and the eastern Sacramento county region. Scheduled services for rattlesnake issues is available as far south as the Sonora region in Tuolumne county, northward to Corning, east into the western slope of the sierra, and west to Sonoma county. Aside from emergency rattlesnake removal (in the mentioned emergency response zone), we also offer thorough property inspections, to sweep through and remove any rattlesnakes 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 for instance, including increasing rodent populations and rodent borne diseases. Contrary to popular belief, 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 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. 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.
