Dealing with snakes on your Hamilton County property can be overwhelming, especially if you don't know if they're venomous. Although there are over 30 species of snakes living in Indiana, only 4 of them are venomous, and bites from venomous snakes are fairly uncommon. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to guess what type of snake you are bound to encounter in your everyday life, and we don't recommend handling any snakes on your own.

In most states, non-venomous snakes are protected from unnecessary killing. If you are experiencing a serious snake related issue, please do not hesitate to contact the experienced wildlife professionals at Critter Control. We are properly trained to take care of venomous or problematic snakes, and we take all necessary precautions to handle the issue safely.
The best way to control snake populations is to remove potential sources of food and shelter. Some things you can do to discourage snakes include:
- Clearing yards of debris piles and mowing grass regularly helps discourage snakes from making their homes on homeowners' lawns.
- Sealing up cracks and gaps along exterior walls with fine mesh or caulk also proves effective.
To eliminate potential food sources for these snakes, it is wise to take steps to control rodent and insect populations. Some modifications can include:
- Keeping your home clean
- Storing food in rodent-proof containers
In Indiana, there are 4 species of venomous snakes:
- Timber Rattlesnake: around 40 inches, jagged bands of dark on brown body
- Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake: around 25-30 inches, brown body with darker spots
- Northern Copperhead: around 30 inches, copper-colored. Copperheads are responsible for many snake bites in a year, but it is usually accidental or in defense.
- Western Cottonmouth: around 30-40 inches, dark-colored, thick body
