Snake Removal and Snake Fence Updates, 10/20/21

As the season winds to a close, there is the expected flurry of activity right at dusk as snakes move towards winter dens.

This will continue throughout October, into mid-November, when snake activity will more or less stop entirely. Here’s an article detailing when snakes stop being active in the winter in Arizona.

Here are some of our recent relocations, with many more to post.

Snake Removal and Snake Fence Updates 10/05/21

Late September and early October are usually pretty busy for us. As the monsoon wanes, we see snakes of all kinds getting ready for cooler conditions. That means there’s a lot to do: eating, mating, and traveling to wherever it is they want to wait out the winter. That can often mean they end up in a backyard or garage, and we’re called out to help.

A spike in calls usually happens right after dark. This will likely continue throughout October, dropping off dramatically in the first week of November. Of course the weather and conditions will largely determine how long this lasts, but this is a trend we see every year and we have no reason to believe it will be any different now.

Likewise, October is a time that many homeowners realize that the fear of having a rattlesnake in the yard is something that can be stopped at any time. Things like making landscaping changes and having a snake fence installed can make a huge difference.

As always, we’ve been busy. Not only with snake removals, but all sorts of field work. That includes travel all over the country, and even into Mexico, looking for wild snakes of all kinds.

That means I’m a bit backed up on some of our social media communications, so here’s an attempt to get caught up. Here are a good amount of the recent snake removal jobs we’ve done in the past few weeks.

With temperatures starting to look like Fall, we expect an uptick in activity that will last throughout the month. With all of the recent rain and what looks to have been a great monsoon, the baby rattlesnakes born this year will likely survive in great numbers. We expect to continue seeing those pop up in Arizona yards through October, into November.

This is just a small number of the removals we’ve done in the past few weeks. We are busier than ever. No, this doesn’t mean snakes are more numerous, but people sure are πŸ™‚

Snake Removals in Phoenix and Tucson 07/28/2021

Rain! We finally had good rain, after years without (much). The result? Snakes are going to become VERY active. We’ve already seen the start of it, with more snake removals than ever before in such a short time. Here are just some of the snakes we’ve removed since the last update, with many more yet to process.

Moisture not only brings a much needed drink, but cooler and more stable temperatures. Snakes can easily die if their body temperature is above 105˚F, so these late July temperatures that don’t even get to triple digits are a great time to move. It’s also the start of baby rattlesnake season. Monsoon moisture triggers this event, so watch for baby rattlesnakes in our feed soon.

Snake Removals and Rattlesnake Fence Updates – 05/03/21

We’ve been busy! Rattlesnakes (and other species) are on the move across the state. Every day we are called to capture rattlesnakes at homes in the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas. Here are some of the latest captures:

Now more than ever, making sure that an air-tight (or snake-tight, rather) solution is in place before rattlesnakes look for cool cover to wait out the incoming heat. This often means a spot under the pool equipment or landscaping. Thankfully, many give us a call to have snake fencing installed before that happens. Here are some recent projects:

We’ve been busy! Typically running between 5 and 10 calls each day, or more, and completing as many as 5 snake fence projects a day as well. Here are some of the highlights over the past few weeks.

Snake Removals and Rattlesnake Fencing Updates – 04/01/21

It took awhile, but Spring is finally in full swing! The emergence of many rattlesnake species seems to have been delayed by back to back cold snaps, but our hotline is now chugging along at the usual rate. Our snake fence team is also super busy, as people continue to make the decision that the rattlesnake they just saw on the patio should be the last one.

Here’s a video compilation of some rattlesnake removal captures and releases.

Rattlesnake fence installation is becoming a very popular addition to any home in Arizona. Once people discover how easy it really is to keep a rattlesnake off the patio, it’s a no-brainer. Here are some of our recent projects.

Snake Removals and Rattlesnake Fencing Updates – 03/02/21

Even though it’s March, we’re still seeing cool weather that is keeping most snake activity to a minimum. However, we are also getting a lot of emails and texts with photos to identify! They’re almost all Sonoran Gophersnakes, but there are a few Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes in there as well.

Our snake fencing timelines are starting to increase as well, currently booked out about 2 weeks in both Phoenix and Tucson. This is driven by the first reports of rattlesnakes on trails, in the news, and a few other places. Once things really kick off in a couple more weeks, we expect to be flooded. If a snake fence is something you’re considering, now is the time.

Usually, we see a particular signal that happens just about when our hotline starts going crazy – multiple consecutive days in March with overnight temperatures in the upper 50s. Once that happens: it’s on!

Snake Removal and Rattlesnake Proofing Updates for Feb 9 2021

It’s still slow out there, as it always is in the Winter! That means I can finally catch up on some more of the thousands of photos from the previous season.

As things start to warm up, we’ll of course start to see some rattlesnake activity out there. First, we’ll be seeing them around garages and pool pumps, where homeowners are often surprised to learn they’ve been there since October or so. We’re looking forward to being busy again πŸ™‚
