We Strive for Affordability

When it comes to the removal of snakes — especially rattlesnakes — it isn’t always the easiest task to complete. Sometimes the capture can take a fair amount of work, such as cutting a trapped snake out of mesh or bird netting (a very tedious and risky task), having to coax a snake out of a rock wall, or even dig them out of a burrow. Sometimes snakes like to move from the first place they were seen (this is why we ask to keep an eye on the snake while we respond), requiring a meticulous sweep of the area to find the snake. Additionally, there tends to be a fair amount of transportation involved with this service — including response to your location, back to base, then back off to a relocation site.

Finally, working with snakes isn’t the safest line of work. We know what we’re doing and have been doing it throughout much of our lives, have the equipment to do it safely, effectively, and humanely. We’ve studied the way these animals behave and react to certain situations and try to use this experience to figure out why a snake may be where it’s at, where it’s gone, and what you can to do lower the chances of recurrence.

Have a rattlesnake?

  • We’re available 24/7, call our hotline at (916) 509-1087 to get a response started swiftly
  • Keep an eye on the snake from a safe distance while we respond (we promise to be as fast as possible)

Don’t Forget: Rattlesnakes are Venomous

Cost of a Rattlesnake Bite vs. Removal

Rattlesnake bite cost, based on average medical bills publicly available.

Rattlesnake removal cost, based on common removal locations.

Treatment for a rattlesnake bite, or basically any venomous animal, can be (very) expensive. On average, a vile of antivenom runs around $2,000 on the low end of the spectrum. It can and frequently does take dozens of viles to offset the effects of venom depending on the person and the severity of the envenomation. The antivenom, plus the hospital treatment/room itself can run the total bill into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even if you’re insured, treatment can have a hefty cost due to the immense overall cost of the treatment. Given this, we hope you choose not to try to catch a snake without proper equipment or training, let alone kill it.

I called Placer Snake Removal after spotting a large California King Snake (in our backyard) and within minutes, they were on-their-way. They arrived quickly and while the snake had taken off and moved to another home or area, Placer Snake Removal stayed on our property for at least 20-30 minutes looking under bushes, behind trash cans and under lawn furniture for that snake. I was only charged for the service call. I was advised that no matter what time it was; I was welcome to call if I needed the service again. Any hour. Highly impressive service, ultra fast response time and very friendly.Jonathon N

Our dog was bitten by a large male rattlesnake in our backyard. I called Tyler immediately after I went to the veterinarian clinic. He was over within 30 minutes, professional, unafraid, and very calm as he walked through the backyard and through the bushes and dark areas and eventually found a large rattlesnake inside the edge of the Rockwall. With a garden hose and flashlight, he was able to pull the 2 1/2 foot male rattlesnake out and into a bucket. He was gone and done in less than an hour. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to remove rattlesnakes fairly quickly.
