Cost of Snake Removal


By ProMatcher Staff



Question: How Much Does Snake Removal Cost?

Answer: The cost of snake removal is determined by several different factors, including:

1. Where you live.

In general, labor costs tend to be higher in urban areas (where the cost of living is higher). Prices may be significantly lower in small towns and more rural areas. However, many wildlife removal companies will charge a base “trip charge” to account for the travel time required to reach your home. If you live in a remote area, you might have to pay for this extra gas.

2. Number of visits required.

In most cases, the issue can be resolved in a few hours. However, if the contractor is unable to catch the snake in a reasonable amount of time, he may need to set a trap and return the next day. If this is the case, make sure to ask if this will add to the cost of the service.

3. Type of snake.

The species (and size) of the snake will likely have an affect the cost of removal. This is particularly true when dealing with venomous snakes. Be prepared to spend a little bit more when dealing with more dangerous species.

4. Number of snakes.

How many snakes need to be trapped and removed from the property? Is there a nest that needs to be removed as well? As the number of snakes increases, so will the cost of the removal.

5. Snake's location.

Have small garden snakes taken over your yard? Or, has a single snake How much time do you think it will take to locate the snake(s)? Is the snake stuck in a tight crawlspace or wall cavity? Or, is the snake in a wide open area with plenty of hiding spots? The cost of removal tend to increase with the degree of difficulty.

6. Preventing re-entry.

Once the snake or snakes have been removed, you will need to take steps to prevent the problem from happening again. The snake removal professional should help you identify how and where the snake entered your home (if you don’t know already). All possible entry points should be sealed appropriately. In some cases, this may require major repairs. These home repairs will come at an additional cost, and may need to be handled by a general contractor.

7. Snake fence installation.

In some cases, it may be necessary to put up some snake fencing as a way to prevent re-entry. These physical barriers will help to deter snakes from accessing your property again. The cost of snake fencing will depend on the type of material you choose and the total size of your yard.

8. Compare multiple prices quotes.
