Can snakes get on your roof?
We’ve all heard of “Snakes on a Plane” but have you heard “snakes on a roof”?! If not, I’m here to tell you that it is 100% possible and 1,000,000,000% SCARY. To make it even worse, they can get into your attic space, into the ceiling, and walls! These spaces are dark, warm, and humid making it a snake’s favorite shelter. While it’s great for Slinky the slithering snake, you may not get those same feelings.
How do snakes get on the roof and into the house?
Snakes are sneaky climbers that can go up to your roof and enter the home through small gaps, vent openings, gaps around the doors, and wherever else they can get through.
Why do snakes enter houses?
As stated previously, they like dark, warm, and humid areas. What could be more perfect than your attic in the middle of monsoon season?!
Signs there is a snake in the attic
- Shed skins and droppings
- Slither tracks
- Slow moving scratches noises
What to do if there is a snake is the attic
Call pest control! It is advised against to go after the snake yourself. Unfortunately, here in Arizona, we have snakes that are venomous and will kill us if bit. If you’re not sure where the snake is located, you can try putting snake traps in and around the house and roof.
