The trip underneath the house was brief because the man saw what he called a “few” snakes and immediately exited.

A crew went to the house and in a Facebook post about the service call said, “We arrived around lunchtime and as soon as I crawled under I could immediately see that there was far more than a few.”
When everything was said and done a total of 45 snakes (some appearing VERY IRRITATED by the interruption) were found and removed. The largest snake pulled from underneath the house was reportedly 5 1/2 feet long.
The company posted an 18-minute video of part of the actual removal on Facebook and it’s been viewed more than 300,000 times.MORE NEWS: Nebraska Sending State Troopers To Help At Southern Texas Border
The company said finding that many snakes at a house that “was nice and clean” and had a very well kept yard is unusual, but that snakes only care about surviving.
