Worm Snake


  • Can release a foul odor when threatened or disturbed
  • Average length is less than 14 inches
  • Almost exclusively eats earthworms but will also eat slugs, snails, and insect larvae

Worm snakes are small snakes that not only feed on earthworms but share some characteristics as well. They are pinkish to dark brown in color with a very narrow head and small eyes. These snakes are burrowers and spend most of their time buried in the soil and under logs. Worm snakes are commonly found in the same soil as termites, since the termites create soil that is easy for these snakes to burrow in. If you discover worm snakes near your home, please consider getting an inspection for termites as soon as possible.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
