Although snakes may seem threatening the majority of snakes in Minnesota are nonvenomous. Most species of snakes that are venomous are pit vipers, which can navigate their environment and hunt using infrared-sensing receptors that allow them to detect the heat of their prey.Luckily for us, we do not have to really worry about venomous snakes. They are actually very beneficial to the ecosystem, they prey upon small rodents such as mice and shrews and help control those species that actually pose a threat to your property. Snakes also bask in the sunlight on warm days, since, as cold-blooded animals, they rely on external heat sources to regulate their body temperature.
Snakes do not often invade homes, but it does happen on occasion. They usually are in search for food or shelter to hibernate for the winter. Areas that attract rodents, such as houses, barns, commercial food processing centers, and gardens, also attract snakes. Dark, damp places in yards such as piles of lumber, discarded tires, and loose rocks all make ideal hiding places for snakes, who retreat to safety to digest after catching their prey.
Although snakes seem intimidating, they rarely bite and usually only do so if grabbed or cornered, and even when they do most time they are harmless unless from a venomous snake. Reptiles do not attack humans, so if you do not make them feel intimidated they will not harm you. Timber Rattlesnakes are only found in the bluff of S.E. Minnesota, so residents of St. Paul do not have to be alarmed when they find a snake in their home or near their property.
