We do not want to alarm you. However, you should be aware that snakes are prolific this season and snake bites, according to data from the emergency rooms, are up over 40% this year. Nelon-Cole Termite & Pest Control provides snake removal services. If you are seeing snakes, you might also have a rodent problem since snakes prey on rodents. If you see any signs of rodents or snakes, please give us a call as soon as possible so that we can address your concerns.
