Rattlesnakes are quite common in Scottsdale. We are often called to areas near Troon, or into Fountain Hils, to remove snakes of all species that end up on property. If a snake is in your yard, keep calm and do not approach it. Bites from venomous snakes most offen occur when the home owner is trying to catch or kill the snake without proper training. You will need to keep an eye on the snake until we arrive.
The beautiful natural-desert yards in Scottsdale make great habitat for wildlife, including rattlesnakes. The desert landscaping, combined with the mountainous, boulder-fields and mountain-sides, and numerous swimming pools, mean that rattlesnakes have ample opportunity to life right where we do.
How many rattlesnakes are in Scottsdale?
Here is a video taken by Rattlesnake Solutions in 2010, showing a small den of rattlesnakes being removed from a garage in the Scottsdale Mountain foothills. WARNING: Be prepared to jump.
Obviously this is not the normal situation, but it illustrates how quickly desert wildlife can move into an area when human activity is not present. This particular incident was a vacant home, on the market for a short time. The realtor saw a snake prior to a showing and called us at 480-237-9975 for removal service. All snakes were captured and later released back to the desert unharmed.
How much does it cost to have a snake removed?
Pricing is based on several factors, including distance, estimated time to capture, and availability of trained snake experts. To keep the price to the absolute minimum, we quote each relocation individually, rather than giving a flat rate which could be more than necessary. When you call, you'll be asked for your zip code, and the field agent on the line will be able to tell you the time to arrival and cost immediately.
If you've seen a snake on your property in Scottsdale, but don't know where it went ...
Give us a call anyway. Unlike pest control companies, we specialize in rattlesnakes, and spend many hours each month studying them in the wild. If a rattlesnake is living in your yard, we know how to find it by signs that would be invisible to non-trained eyes. Compared to finding wild snakes in the open desert, tracking a rattlesnake to its hole in the backyard is easy.
