Common Household Pests That Can Sneak Inside Your Toilet

Snakes in toilet bowls are a surprising phenomenon, but not uncommon. These slippery creatures often enter your toilet while hunting for prey, such as rats. They sometimes enter through gaps and cracks, but they can also navigate pipes and, surprisingly, end up in household plumbing, especially toilets. But it’s not always about hunting. Sometimes, especially in hot weather, snakes are simply looking for a cool place to relax. The toilets, with their porcelain bowls and water, offer them a pleasant and cool place. And if you leave your windows or doors open, a snake might take the opportunity to sneak into your bathroom and make its way into the toilet bowl to escape the heat.

To prevent snakes from entering your toilet, start with some basic care at home. Install covers or mesh screens over vents, windows and drains to block their entrance. Keep your bathroom windows and doors closed, especially in areas prone to snake visits. It’s also wise to keep your toilet lid down when not in use. For added protection, inspect your sewer system for any potential entry points and make sure they are properly sealed.
