Snake Control Introduction

sgp badgeSgt. Poopers delivers all-natural-non-toxic snake control to keep venomous snakes out of Dallas, Tx yards year round. If you have pets or young children that play in your yard and you live near near a field, park, greenway, wooded area, pond, or creek, it's a good idea to remember there are seven species of venomous snakes that call DFW home. All of them are capable of biting humans or pets. In the Dallas area, more people are bitten by copperheads than any other snake.

For a low fee, Sgt. Poopers can create an all-natural and non-toxic chemimcal barrier to keep venomous snakes out of your yard and away from your house. Each week we renew the barrier to maintain it's strength.

Venomous Snakes of Dallas, Texas

copperhead in leaves

Do you see the snake?

arrowheadThere are dozens of kinds of snakes in Dallas, but only seven species are venomous:

  1. Western Diamondback Rattlesnake
  2. Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin)
  3. Copperhead
  4. Texas Coral Snake
  5. Timber Rattlesnake
  6. Western Pygmy Rattlesnake
  7. Western Massasagua Rattlesnake

Across the USA, about 7,000 people are bitten by venomous snakes every year. Anti-venom is very expensive — $6,000 a vial. Treatment can require 4 vials at $24,000. Perhaps being bitten by a snake is not as bad as being bitten by a $24K hospital bill. To keep snakes out, we apply our proprietary essential oil bend each week to the perimeter of your yard. It effectively repels venomous snakes and creates a barrier snakes will not enter.

All-Natural snake Control

sgtpoopers buttonSgt. Poopers uses an effective and 100% natural, all-organic essential oil blend that is non-toxic to humans, pets, plants, and beneficial insects like bees and butterflies. Users  have written thousands of five-star reviews. Using a multi-step filtration process, this essential oil blend is purified of all unnecessary contaminants and any other potentially harmful ingredients. It does not contain phenols or phenolic compounds which can be harmful to birds. In fact, this product is so non-toxic it does not require regulation by the EPA and cannot be over applied. The presence of certain essential oils are known to keep snakes from venturing into yard.

We spray our non-toxic control agent weekly and are the only pest control service in Dallas that provides weekly service for less cost than traditional exterminators charge. Sgt. Poopers business model is built on weekly visits. This means you receive three or four times the attention and service with no risk, no contract, and in most cases at less cost than what traditional synthetic-pesticide companies would charge.

If snakes are bad in your neighborhood, it will be a good idea to start a program of proactive defense before a snake attacks a child or a dog. For a small price, you get peace of mind.

Western Diamondback Rattlesnake

western diamondback rattlesnake

If you've ever inadvertently stepped near a rattlesnake, you probably didn't stand there for long. The western diamondback rattlesnake is generally considered the most dangerous snake in Texas because of its ability to inject venom in a blur of motion nearly too fast for the eye  to see.

Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin)

water moccasin

The water moccasin or cottonmouth is a strong swimmer and hangs out in or on the edges of ponds, lakes and slow-moving creeks where it eats fish, frogs, etc. Unlike sea snakes, which are fully marine, the water moccasin is semi-aquatic snake. Adults can be nearly black in color while juveniles are sandy brown with a pattern of wavy cross bands. When threatened, it opens its mouth to reveal cotton-colored flesh.

Southern Copperhead

Unlike rattlesnakes, copperheads do not give warning before they strike. Instead they rely on their incredible camouflage and "freeze" unless a person or dog inadvertently gets so close or even touches the snake accidentally. Then they bite. Most people who are bitten by a snake in Dallas, are bitten by copperheads. In a bed of dead leaves, they are nearly impossible to distinguish. They do vibrate their tails before striking (at 40 times per second!), but lacking rattles the buzz is too faint to hear.

Texas Coral Snake

The Texas coral snake can inject venom quickly from a pair of deeply grooved, semi-hollow, chisel-shaped, fixed fangs in the front of its upper jaw. While it looks similar to the harmless King Snake, you can tell them apart by remembering this rhyme, "red on yellow, kill a fellow." Although coral snakes don't always expel venom when they bite, any injury from a coral snake should be considered an extremely serious medical emergency, and treatment should be sought immediately. Symptoms are sometimes delayed up to 24 hours, then develop quickly. Most Texas coral snakes are about two feet long, but they can grow to double that length.

Timber Rattlesnake

By Jonathunder - Own work, GFDL 1.2, Link

Considered one of the USA's most dangerous snakes, this is the species that appeared on the original Gadsden Flag during the Revolutionary War above the famous words, "Don't Tread On Me."  However its large size, big fangs, and high-volume of venom are mitigated by a somewhat mild disposition; they can be difficult to provoke. But if you are bitten, seek immediate medical attention.

Western Pygmy Rattlesnake

 pigmy rattlesnake

Although its bite is not fatal, a bite victim should seek immediate medical attention. The western pygmy rattlesnake should be respected and left alone. Pygmy rattlers don't produce much venom, fortunate if you get bitten. But it is still enough to require children be hospitalized. Their venom was used to design a drug that prevents blood clotting for heart attack victims.

Western Massasagua Rattlesnake

Although death is rare, the venom of the Massasagua rattlesnake destroys tissue and contains digestive enzymes that disrupt blood flow and prevent clotting. The Massasagua is the smallest of rattlesnakes; adults are rarely longer than 20 inches. It is not a forest dweller, but prefers the open prairie.

What to Do if You Are Bitten

From Texas Parks and Wildlife website: https://tpwd.texas.gov/education/resources/texas-junior-naturalists/be-nature-safe/venomous-snake-safety

  1. Assume envenomation has occurred, especially if initial symptoms are present. Initial symptoms of pit viper bites include fang puncture marks; in addition, they almost always include immediate burning pain at the bite site, immediate and usually progressive local swelling within five minutes, as well as local discoloration of the skin. Initial symptoms of coral snake bites include tremors, slurred speech, blurred or double vision, drowsiness or euphoria and a marked increase in salivation within four hours; however, life-threatening effects from coral snake envenomation may not be evident for 24 hours or longer.
  2. Identify the species of venomous snake that inflicted the bite, if possible, taking care to avoid another person being bitten. Identification is not necessary, but may be helpful.
  3. Keep the victim as calm as possible. This helps reduce the spread of venom and the onset of shock.
  4. Keep yourself and any other members of the group calm as well. This will help reassure the victim and ensure that the appropriate first-aid measures are followed, as well as preventing anyone else from becoming injured.
  5. Know and be alert for the symptoms of shock, and institute the proper treatment should it ensue. Difficulty in breathing and/or kidney failure are frequent symptoms of envenomation.
  6. Wash the bite area with a disinfectant if available.
  7. Remove jewelry such as rings and watches, as well as tight-fitting clothes, before the onset of swelling.
  8. Reduce or prevent movement of a bitten extremity, using a splint if possible; this helps decrease the spread of venom. For the same reason, position the extremity below the level of the heart.
  9. Get the victim to a medical facility as soon as possible and begin treatment there with intravenous antivenom, crystalloid solutions and antibiotics. Antivenom treatment is generally most effective within the first four hours of envenomation, and is ineffective after 8-10 hours.

What Not to Do if You Are Bitten

From Texas Parks and Wildlife website:  https://tpwd.texas.gov/education/resources/texas-junior-naturalists/be-nature-safe/venomous-snake-safety

  1. Do not make incisions over the bite marks. This can result in significant damage to already traumatized tissue, and can damage intact structures such as nerves and blood vessels, enhance bleeding caused by anticoagulant components of venom and increase the rapid spread of venom throughout the body if the circulatory system is compromised. A suction device, such as the Sawyer ExtractorTM, may be used without making any incisions. This device may remove significant quantities of venom, although its efficacy has yet to be conclusively determined.
  2. Do not use a tourniquet or other constricting ban except in extreme cases of envenomation, and then only if properly trained in the technique. Such devices are of no value if applied more than thirty minutes after the bite, and if improperly used they can restrict blood vital blood flow to the traumatized tissue and possibly result in the amputation of an extremity. Unbearable pain can also result, and the improper loosening of such devices can allow sudden systemic absorption of venom.
  3. Do not use cryotherapy (including cold compresses, ice, dry ice, chemical ice packs, spray refrigerants, and freezing) for the same reasons that the tourniquets should be avoided, and also because it can increase the area necrosis.
  4. Do not use electroshock therapy, a method popularized following publication of a letter from a missionary in South America reporting its effectiveness in treating bites from snakes of uncertain identity. Several controlled clinical trials and at least one on humans have failed to demonstrate any positive result; moreover, the potential negative results from the uncontrolled use of an electric charge are obvious.
  5. Do not drink alcohol, as it dilates blood vessels and increases absorption from the circulatory system, and thus helps spread venom faster.
  6. Do not use aspirin or related medications to relieve pain, because they increase bleeding. A pain reliever not containing aspirin, however, may be used.
  7. Do not use the pressure/immobilization technique, which consists of firmly wrapping the entire limb with an elastic bandage and then splinting, especially for pit viper bites. The theory behind this treatment is to confine the venom to the area of the bite until reaching a medical facility, but studies have shown the technique to be ineffective or worse with venoms which produce local swelling and tissue damage.
  8. Do not administer antivenom in the field unless properly trained in the procedure, unless evacuation to a medical facility will take many hours or days, or unless envenomation has been extreme. Intramuscular or subcutaneous application of antivenom has proven to be much less effective, and in some cases ineffective, than intravenous administration. Acute allergic reactions to antivenom can occur, and contemplated field administration of antivenom should include provision for a sufficient supply of epinephrine (adrenalin) to counteract any such potential effects.
