I went to the chicken coop last week and started to pick up an egg and discovered it had a snake attached to it. The snake had just started wrapping its mouth around the egg before I removed him. I believe it was a Chicken snake which was about 5 ft long. The egg survived and is happy. I tend to approach the coop more cautiously now after that.

Roger that. We have rattlesnakes around our property during the summertime, and I have killed some big mothers. We have also had the occasional rash of baby rattlesnakes which can be even worse, especially since I have two little boys that like to run around barefoot. Every morning when I get up I walk the perimeter of the house, as well as when I get home from work and in the evenings. I plan on building an extension onto my old garage to move all my hobby cars there, and I'll probably adopt a cat or two just to take care of the rodents and alert me to any large snakes. My cat saved my mom several years ago from a 7-foot rattlesnake, but got bit by another one a few years later. She survived but was never the same.

They are creepy all right, makes me glad there are no snakes in New Zealand.

My shop guard snake..

Meet Slippery. He/she is about 4', loves to watch me work on the 55. Never comments about my work, stays out of my way.:sign0020:

BTW, there are no rodents in the place...
Leave the rat and king snakes alone, and the rattlers will make themselves scarce....
And, that's NOT a rubber snake!

you'll run out of ammo before you'll run out of snakes . barn cats work well. if you have lizards , frogs or mice you have snakes.

There is another black snake in my shop. I take a flashlight to look under everything before I stick my hand under there. If you have a overhead door they will like to lay in the panels to warm up. Found that out when a copperhead came falling down right next to me. I think I peed a little on that one and now open the door from the outside.

I let the black snake stay because of mice and other snakes. He still scares the heck out of me. If you are trying to get one outside or from under a cabinet, you the air gun with your compressor. The blast of air will get them moving.

I hate finding small snakes, just me more and the mother is around somewhere.

Found out the clearing the land off of any overbrush, debris and packrat nests eliminated the rattlesnake problem for us..........but the shotgun is always close by!
