What Kind of Snakes Live in the Finger Lakes Region?
The Finger Lakes area of New York is home to around a dozen varieties of snakes. Most of the snakes that reside in the Finger Lakes region are not harmful or venomous to humans, however, there is an exception to this: rattlesnakes. There are two species of rattlesnake that call NYS their home (the timber rattlesnake, and the eastern massasauga), so if you think you hear rattlesnakes in your home or on your property, it’s best you call the experts immediately and stay away.
Signs of Snake Infestation
If you’re not actively seeing a snake in real time, there are other signs that you may look for. It may be difficult to notice a snake infestation or snake nest, particularly in winter, as snakes might nest inside of your walls to protect themselves from the cold. Snakes won’t damage your home like other vermin/rodents like mice or rats. Once snakes enter your home, they can remain unnoticed for months. However, there are some signs you can look for:
Snakes regularly shed their skin as they grow, leaving behind the dry, scaly exoskeleton. The shed skin may either be in a whole sheet, or in a crumpled heap somewhere close to an entrance into the walls of your home.
If you’re inspecting a dusty area or crawlspace, you may notice tracks that indicate where a snake has come by.
New Odd Odor
A lot of snakes have a very distinctive smell. If you notice a strange scent in a crawlspace or other area that wasn’t there before, it may be a cause for concern.
Snake droppings are very distinctive. They often look like bird feces, but they sometimes include hair and bones from their prey.
