Python Removal

Urban wildlife populations are exploding throughout Florida this year. This includes both native and non-native species. Non-native species have always plagued Florida. This includes invasive species of fish such as the Lionfish to invasive species of plants such as the Brazilian pepper-tree. Many of Florida’s non-native species affect the residents that live throughout the state. Most people are aware of South Florida’s python problem. The Burmese Python in particular is one of the largest snakes in the world. Once in Florida, far away from its native land in Southeast Asia, it preys upon native and even endangered species.

Burmese Python

The Burmese python has been documented to consume American Alligators. This poses as a great threat to pets and children along the Western communities in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, LLC has been responding to calls for invasive snakes found in South Florida over the past number of years. Some of these calls are for Python Removal. This typically involves removing a juvenile or young adult python from a resident’s backyard. Snakes in general like to hide under many common items found in a backyard. This can range from curling up underneath a stone paver or a large garden pot, to hiding under a backyard grill or pool supply tote.

Python Control

The Nuisance Wildlife Rangers thoroughly inspects all potential areas were a snake could be hiding. If the biologist cannot locate the snake or if he or she suspects that more snakes are in the close by area; Nuisance Wildlife Rangers will setup snake traps around the property. The snake traps are setup along pathways where they are expected to use to get from one side of the property to the other side. Also, traps can be used to act as a hiding place so when a snake goes into it, the snake is now trapped and cannot escape. The threat of Burmese pythons will continue to elevate in South Florida as time goes on. Python Removal is very important for the safety of everyone.
