A: No, absolutely not. Snakebites from venomous snakes should be treated by a local hospital with antivenom. If you attempt to suck out the venom you are subjecting another part of your body to the venom. Again, do not suck out the venom and seek immediate medical attention by a facility that is experienced in snakebites.
A: There are 6 species of venomous snakes in Florida. The Pygmy Rattlesnake, Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin, Coral snake, and Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake are found throughout Florida. The Southern Cottonmouth and the Timber Rattlesnake are found primarily in north Florida.
A: Water Moccasins or Cottonmouths can be found in ponds, streams, springs, rivers, lakes, marshes, swamps, reservoirs, canals, retention pools and roadside ditches. Water snakes are also common in these areas and can be easily misidentified as a Water Moccasin. Call a wildlife biologist at Allstar Animal Removal to help identify if the snake is dangerous and if it needs to be removed.
A: A snake can get into a house through many different entry points. Water spouts that are not properly sealed, open garage doors and garage doors that are not properly sealed are just a few of the common entry points for a snake. Blind snakes will get into a house through cracks in the foundation. Call a professional at Allstar Animal Removal to give a full inspection and find out where the snake is getting into your home.
A: Depending on what species of non-venomous snake, most will bite to defend themselves if they feel threatened. Never handle a snake even if it is non-venomous. With a non-venomous snakebite you still have to worry about bacterial infections.
