® American Animal Control, LLC receives calls from home owners that will find or see snakes, or snake skins in their crawlspace or basement areas. Snakes like dark damp moist areas of homes or buildings. All of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, have many different types of snakes. Some are poisonous, but most are not. There are very few people who enjoy living with snakes in their home. Snakes will enter homes typically down low at the foundation level or behind the siding, but sometimes snakes will drop to your roof from a low hanging branch, then enter your attic under eaves and soffits.
IF YOU HAVE MICE IN YOUR HOUSE, YOU MAY HAVE SNAKES ALSO!
Most snakes eat mice. Many times when our customers call and say they had a sighting of a snake in the crawlspace or basement, we ask them if they have ever had a mouse in their house? Almost all say yes. Mice will enter homes in, or at foundation openings, such as foundation cracks, or foundation vents. They will also go under siding , up outside corners, and snakes will climb cedar sided houses, crawl up bricks or stone houses, snakes then will enter construction gaps on the roof line. Snakes will follow these mice wherever they go. Snakes smell the mouse urine and residue that is left behind at the entrance points where a mouse will come and go.
INDIANAPOLIS SNAKES DO NOT JUST EAT MICE
Many snakes in Indianapolis will eat bugs and other pests besides mice. Snakes will also prey on small frogs in yard ponds or pools. With the vast variety of snake habitats in Indianapolis, there is a wide collection of snakes. Some snakes prefer wooded habitats while others prefer open fields. Water snakes and those that prefer marshes or other wetlands are also present. Many homes in Indianapolis are on lakes, ponds, or reservoirs. Encountering a venomous snake is rare in Indianapolis, but venomous species can be found occasionally, and are identified by their elliptical pupils, their triangular heads and the heat-sensing pits behind their nostrils.
Indiana Venomous Snakes
Of the over 30 species of snake found in Indiana, only four are venomous, and all four are pit vipers. The four species of venomous snakes that may or can be occasionally found in Indianapolis are the timber rattlesnake, eastern massasauga rattlesnake, northern copperhead, and the western cottonmouth. Timber rattlesnakes inhabit a small area in south-central Indiana; the eastern massasauga is an endangered species that inhabits northern Indiana. Only a small, isolated population of cottonmouths exists in south-central Indiana. Copperheads have the largest range of any venomous snake in the state: it spreads across southern Indiana into areas of central Indiana.
Indiana's Large Snakes
The black racer, or "blue racer" varies in color from black in the southern part of the state to blue in its northern range. Both color varieties may sometimes exist in Indianapolis. These snakes are quite large, reaching lengths of 5 feet. The black rat snake is particularly large, growing up to 8 feet long. These snakes are particularly good climbers and are often encountered in the rafters of houses and barns, or other structures. Both racers and rat snakes are constrictors.
Indiana's Patterned Snakes
Many of Indianapolis snakes are patterned with colorful stripes, bands or blotches. Milk snakes have rust-colored blotches with thick, black outlines on a whitish-gray background. Brown snakes are light brown with a row of diamond-shaped spots along each side of their backs. The garter snakes of Indianapolis typically have conspicuous stripes along their green to black bodies. Some species also have spots or a checkerboard pattern.
Indiana's Water Snakes
Indianapolis is home to a few species of water snakes. The northern water snake and midland water snake is aggressive and inhabits the northern half and southern half of the state, respectively. Sometimes mistaken for copperheads or cottonmouths due to their dark-brown-and-tan pattern, these snakes are completely harmless. The queen snake is an olive-green to olive-brown color with a distinctly yellow belly. Kirtland's water snake is an endangered species found in the northern two-thirds of the state..
