These are obvious a bigger threat to the health and well-being of you and your family, and this category includes such fearsome snakes as the copperhead, water moccasin and numerous species of rattlesnakes, all of which can cause serious and often fatal injury if they are allowed to maintain a presence around your home. Because their main source of food are small rodent, having any rodents such as mice or rats in or around your home makes it much more likely that you might have poisonous snakes lurking not far away.
Although they don’t present a massive threat to the health of you and your loved ones like venomous snakes do, the non-venomous species of snakes are also a serious pest problem, and can cause many problems should they find their way into your home. The major problem that non-venomous snakes can cause is that they are liable to create nests inside a house, which can easily draw in more pests of different species and cause a huge problem if not taken care of quickly and completely.
All snakes should be treated with respect and left alone regardless of venom. Most venomous species in the India are a type of pit viper ( small pit below each eye that is used to sense heat), including copper heads and rattlesnakes. There are various ways to identify a pit viper from non venomous snakes. The physical differences focus on features of the head. Characteristics of the non venomous snake are narrow head, no pit between eye and nostril and proud pupils. The pit vipers have a triangular shaped head, a prominent pit between eye and nostril and elliptical pupils. There are also tail differences.
