Alabama is home to 6 venomous snakes. All of which, except one, belong to the pit viper family. These snakes posses incredibly dangerous venom but will almost always prefer to avoid humans rather than attack one. It is not recommended that you get close to a snake in order to determine whether or not a snake is venomous. If there is any doubt, please call a pest control expert.


  • Pit vipers have thick bodies, angular blocky heads, and distinct necks
  • Coral snakes have a bulbous head and a distinct stripe pattern with red touching yellow
  • Most snakes will only bite when threatened or cornered

Pit vipers have sharp triangular heads and distinct necks, as well as a pit between the snake’s nostril and eye that is used to locate warm-blooded prey. The other type of venomous snake is the eastern coral snake, with its distinctive and often mimicked black, yellow, and red color pattern. Our effective snake control method will create an invisible barrier that will keep these dangerous pests away from your family. Please call today to learn more.

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.
