Snake removal is usually less expensive than the average wildlife control job. For me to come to your property to remove a snake, a one-time trip, I usually charge in the $120-$200 range depending on
travel distance and other factors.
If you require a larger snake management program, with habitat modification, setting and monitoring of snake traps, many service visits over a span if time, etc, then the cost can be quite a bit higher.

How To Guide: do it yourself!
- Advice on saving money by doing wildlife removal yourself.
Guide: Why does wildlife cost what it does?
- Analysis of the wildlife control business, and prices.
Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Snake control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every snake job is different.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.
You don't want to over-pay of course. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong the
first time, you'll just end up paying more later. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that snakes cause.
Invest in your home and property by taking care of the snake problem correctly.
Customer Email Regarding Snake Problem:
Hi David: I live in Pembroke Pines, Fl. in Broward County in a quiet little corner of the city next to a little lake.
I came home the other night late and as I was walking up the sidewalk came across what I would have considered a BIG worm. I am used to worms having raised two boys in the Ky,
Tenn, and Indiana areas. I was walking up to the "worm" that looked about 12 inches and very small diameter and this worm "sidewinded" over to the ferns and back into the little
vegetated area next to the sidewalk. I have 2 small dogs and while they are on a leash while in the area, do like to walk in the area though hardly ever in the ferns. My concern is
that I have never seen a worm move that fast (less than 2 seconds from pavement to ferns). I have looked up "sidewinders" and have not found any snakes that sidewind except those in
the arid areas such as the sidewinder rattler and some in asia. I just want to know if "sidewinding" is common to many snakes and if I leave this "worm" alone he will also leave me alone,
or if I should pay for snake removal or prevention - and what would the price be for this service?
I rent so these are not my ferns to destroy but if coral snakes do this, I don't really want company in my house either. It was dark so could not see the color of this "worm". Just let me
know if I may be anxious over nothing or if this is typical for the area. I have lived here about 7 years and this is the first snake I have ever seen here. Thanks, A former poison control specialist from Ky. Jonna
Nothing to worry about. Was the snake red, black and yellow? No? Was is huge and fat with diamonds and rattles? No? It's not venomous. It's most likely a FL Ringneck snake. You can just
leave it alone, and save money by not hiring a wildlife control professional. But if you do need someone, the cost will be around the $150 range for snake removal service visit.
Thank you David. If it had colors it was too dark to see. I think it has moved on since the lizards are back and I noticed they were not around during the time the "worm" was around. Thanks for your help.
