Rattlesnakes!!


Hey Cyndi,

There's a couple products on market that repels snakes: Snake-A-way and Snake Out. Snake out is a "Green product" that is very effective. Snakes "taste" the surrounding air, and the special ingredients in Snake Out are very unpleasant to them. When they come in contact with this product in the air, an escape reaction is triggered and they slither away pronto. Snake-A-Way works in much the same manner except that it is not "Green".

Hope this helps.

You might want to first check if they are a protected species in your area. Protection might limit your legal options.

Good point, Yoyizit. The options I mentioned do not kill or injure snakes in any way. They are simply repelled. Conversely, if the snakes continue to be a nuisance, people tend to go to the extreme and kill them. There are alternatives to snake extermination.

Thanks, Mr. Zilla.
I didn't know about protection until I tried to pull a snake out from under the slab of a neighbor's house, on request of the house's female residents.
I had this 5' guy stretched out like a rope - for a creature without hands or feet he sure could hang on!
Later I found out I should have taken more care with this (he/she got away, anyway).

You might want to see my album pic, "snake in a cake dish." This one was strolling around my living room. Might be a ghost snake, might be a milk snake.

Looks like a copperhead to me. I'd be sealing all the holes I could find.

Because of the shape of the head? The pattern also had me a little worried.

Ha!
Fooled The Grim Reaper again!
And, Ha!

One snake I picked up wasted no time in wrapping his body around my forearm.
This was very strange behavior for a snake.

Turns out he wanted leverage to pull his head out from my fist.
And he got leverage, and now the tables were turned, and I had this slightly peeved snake on my arm looking for the best place to plant his fangs.
(See, and I was giving the guy a break by not squeezing his neck too tightly. No good deed goes unpunished).

Too bad I don't have a video of that day.

Elaborate, meaning where/how do you keep the pigs? Do they have to be penned, if so, that will be of no help in my situation. I find it hard to believe that a pig could eat a rattlesnake as I'm sure it would be bit several times while trying and would probably back away after the first bite.
