Is there such a thing as a snake trap, or snake poison? I've got a few of them on my property and of course being a girl (and going outside a lot to garden and walk my dogs) I dont want them around me I dont care what kind they are.
I came out of my back door one fine morning, taking in the early morning breeze over the lake in my back yard and admiring my beautiful blue morning glories. All of a sudden, I noticed a black snake probably 5 foot in length, at the bottom of the steps. We looked at each other...then he lunged at me! The thing flew up the steps at me. Luckily I ran back in the house and slammed the door fast enough. These evil things have no fear.
I thought they were only in my back yard so I moved all my gardening stuff and only walked my dogs in my front yard. However, today my husband found lots of shed snake skin in the front yard. They are every where. They are claiming my yard! What do I do... :(
Instead of helping me with the problem, my husband thought it would be funny to put the snake skin in one of my flower pots. Obviously, I'm gonna have to take things into my own hands.
Therefore I ask, how do I get rid of them? Do not tell me to get a shovel and kill it. I never see them when I have a shovel handy. They probably come from the lake into my yard so I do not know where they live either.
