Snake denning area

Asked March 10, 2020, 2:14 PM EDT

My niece and her family purchased a older home. They moved in December. Once it got nice outside these snakes appeared inside and outside her home. They are found in the home, in the kids toy box, the basement, in the walls. They hear them. They find snake skins all over the home. Mostly corn, garter and bull snakes. Her kids are 4 and 7. They are currently building a new home. Will these snakes leave once old home is gone? If you would like to talk to her I can give ya a phone number, I don't think she has an email. Please let me know your thoughts or any question. Thank You Ronda Holub

I am so sorry to hear about the snake issues. I recommend you contact the Iowa DNR for information on whether the snakes will leave once the old home is gone. I certainly hope they will!

Here is the number for the Iowa DNR: 515-725-8200.
