Does the mere mention of the word make your skin crawl? It’s common for a lot of people to have an extreme dislike of these scaly animals, and being in the same room is just unthinkable. But, they may be closer than you think.
Recently, a snake infestation in Naperville is terrorizing residents, according to this article on Chicago.cbslocal.com:
A snake invasion is making people’s skin crawl in the western suburbs. Viewer after viewer contacted CBS 2 with photos of snakes along the river walk and invading yards in Naperville.
CBS 2’s Brad Edwards went to investigate.
“I’ll have five and six of them on my bushes,” said Nancy Quigley. “They were twice as big as they were last year. They’re not afraid of me anymore.”
It’s scaring away her delivery drivers.
“He’ll see them and drop the package and run back to his truck,” said Quigley.
If you’re one of the unfortunate residents to find one lurking in your property, the most advisable thing to do is to call animal control immediately. Also, you should make sure that they never get inside your home by ensuring that there are no easy entry points. Start by inspecting every possible entry point for any holes or damage that may allow animals to slither into your living space.
One part of your house that can be a passageway is your roof, which is rarely inspected.
