And for walkers and hikers or if you have fields on your property, Young suggests you wear boots.

 Placer Snake Removal removes both venomous and non-venomous snakes.

 Young says snakes are much more scared of us than we are of them, only striking when they fear they may be harmed as a last resort. Snakes are a very important part of the ecosystem, they help keep the rodent population under control, and if the snake population were to be decimated, the rodent population could see increases (along with rodent borne diseases). Young does say he understands that rattlesnakes can pose a (unintentional) threat to people and pets, which is why he works to remove them safetly and release them back into the wild.
