Pest advice for controlling Snakes

In the UK snakes are not dealt with as pests by an average pest control company as problems are not common and dealing with snakes requires particular skills. As stated in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 it is illegal to kill, injure or sell any native British snake or lizard including Grass Snakes, Adders and Slow worms.

Snake-1The Adder, or Viper, is Britain’s only poisonous snake.

How to get rid of snakes

If you are experiencing problems with snakes, please contact a specialist or contact your local RSPCA shelter for advice.
