Welcome home my dear friend.
The most obvious ways to know you have a snake problem is not always about spotting the animal in your environment.
As a matter of truth, finding evidence of snakes is not always easy particularly during harmattan season, when the creature might nest inside of your walls to protect itself from the cold.
In fact Snakes do not leave damage behind like mice or rats.
Once they enter your house, they often remain in hiding for months.
However, there are some signs you can look for around your house. Provided below are some of the signs;
1. Snake skin: Many snakes shed their skin as they grow. The dry, scaly skin may either be in a whole sheet, or in a crumpled heap somewhere close to an entrance into the walls of your home.
2. Slither tracks: If you are inspecting a dusty area or crawlspace, you might notice tracks that indicate where a snake has come by.
3. Odor: A lot of snakes have a very distinctive smell. If you notice a strange scent in a crawlspace or other area that was not there before, it may be a cause for concern.
4. Droppings: Snake droppings are very distinctive. They often look like bird feces, but they sometimes include hair and bones from their prey.
Watch out for these signs next time. Thank you very much.
