Power lines can be extremely dangerous to snakes and other critters. At Critter Guard, we care about protecting snakes from electrical lines and our Line Guard and Pole Guard systems are simple ways to discourage snakes from crawling onto your utility poles and power lines.

Snakes' Interaction with Power Lines

Electrical lines present a significant risk of electrocution to snakes and other animals that crawl, hang, or climb on them. One common scenario that often leads to snakes' presence on power lines is their search for food. Birds are a significant food source for many snake species, and it is common for snakes to slither onto electrical lines in pursuit of birds perched on the lines.

Snakes can easily access power lines from the ground through poles or by crawling onto the lines from other high places. Not only does this present a high level of risk for injury to snakes, it is also an easy way to cause a power outage.

Protect Snakes and Other Animals with Critter Guard's Pole Guard and Line Guard Systems

Critter Guard's Pole Guard and Line Guard systems are innovative barriers that are used to discourage snakes and other critters from climbing onto power lines, protecting snakes and preventing power outages. Our Pole Guards block snakes' access to power lines from the ground level of utility poles, while our Line Guards serve as a barrier to keep snakes from reaching electrical lines from trees, roofs, and other high structures.

Many snake species are endangered, and it is important to take steps to protect them from injuries that are largely preventable. At Critter Guard, we care about protecting snakes and other animals from the dangers of electrical lines.
