Snake Trapping Made Easy
Like all living creatures snakes need water, food and shelter. By locating these three elements on your property and placing your traps at these locations, you will greatly increase your odds of quickly catching the snakes lurking around your house.
It is important to keep in mind that nature operates as a giant food chain. Your property is natures buffet for all the creatures within your proximity. The one item on the menu that all creatures are attracted to and can't live without is water. Where there is water there will be insects. Where there are insects there will be lizards, frogs and toads. Where there are lizards, frogs and toads there will be snakes. Where there are snakes there should be traps. Some common sources of water are AC condensation drip pipes, a dripping spicket or hose, pool pumps and filters and any other places natural or otherwise that may hold water.
The next place to set traps is along the exterior walls of your house, especially between the walls and shrubbery as well as in the shrubbery itself. These areas provide cover and shade and are usually rich with insects, lizards, toads, rodents, small birds and other things that snakes will eat.
It is also important to locate any shelter or nesting sites. Locate any holes and crevices under or between any foundations, sidewalks, decks, steps and landscape materials. Look for any hollow parts of a tree (from ground level up). Search for any debris that a snake can get in or under. Keep your eyes open for any shed snake skin. If you find anything as described above consider placing a trap in that location.
