Are Snakes Harmful?
There are two classes of snakes: venomous and non-venomous. Thankfully, the majority of the species of snakes that are found in Minnesota fall in the latter category. The two best known venomous species of snakes found in Minnesota are the Timber Rattlesnake and the Eastern Massasauga. However, encounters with these species are uncommon and limited to the southeast portion of the state.
The species of snakes that you are most likely to encounter around your home is the Garter snake. Garter snakes are generally harmless but will bite humans and pets when provoked. In fact, your pets are more likely to get bitten by a snake, due to their curious nature and are more likely to encounter hidden snakes.
Can I Get Rid Of Snakes Myself?
If you are a do-it-yourselfer, the good news is that there are steps that you can take that will discourage snakes from visiting your home and yard. You can:
- Reduce their habitat by reducing the places where they can hide. Places include tall grasses, low lying bushes, or woodpiles burrows.
- Reduce their food sources by reducing mice and insects from and around your home.
- Seal any openings in the foundation of your home. Also ensure there is a good seal between your windows and doors and the frames.
However, if you are looking to eliminates from and around your home through chemical means, unfortunately for you, there are no chemicals or fumigants that can be legally used to control snakes. In the case that a snake enters your home and removal is necessary, contact your local animal control agency. Snakes are a beneficial animal to have as they help keep rodent and insect populations under control. If you encounter a snake in your yard, it is most likely just strolling by.
