Our team is professionally trained to remove snakes in the Denver Metro area while ensuring the safety of all individuals, pets, and the snakes themselves.

Professional Removal


Snakes play a vital role in maintaining ecological balance in the Denver Metro Area, contributing to pest control by preying on rodents and insects. However, their presence can sometimes raise concerns among residents due to safety fears and misconceptions. While the majority of snakes in the region are non-venomous and pose no threat to humans, encounters with venomous species like the prairie rattlesnake can occur. Any encounter with a snake can be intimidating. When in doubt, call a professional.

Snake Prevention


Preventative measures can mitigate future snake encounters. Colorado Wildlife Specialists offers a comprehensive range of services to ensure a good fit for your home, garden, property, office, or space. Inspection, exclusion, consultation, and various products give us an array of methods to keep you snake free and stress free.


In the case of snake encounter:

  • Remain Calm
  • Keep a visual on the snake
  • If possible, place a large container over the snake with something weighted on top until a professional arrives
  • If above isn’t possible, try to barricade the snake to a certain area away from individuals and pets. Use materials such as cardboard boxes
  • Avoid injuring or killing the snake. All native species are protected and are vital contributors to local ecosystems. Snakes do more good alive than dead

Licensed Snake Removal

In Colorado, all native snake species are protected, and it is illegal to harm or kill them without proper authorization. Some species may be listed as threatened or endangered, further increasing their protection status. Additionally, capturing and keeping native snakes as pets without the appropriate permits is generally prohibited.

If you encounter a snake on your property, it’s advised to contact local wildlife authorities or a licensed wildlife removal service, (like us), to handle the situation responsibly and in compliance with regulations.

For the latest and most accurate information on Colorado’s snake regulations, it’s recommended to check with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife department or consult the relevant wildlife regulations and statutes
