Charlottesville Virginia Snake Situation: David, I appreciate your fascinating web site and have explored every page. Impressive photos of your snake handling. Having caught a good number of garter snakes while a kid growing up in Colorado, I have good memories. However . . . yesterday while having gutters installed, I was informed of a shed skin on the ground just outside the exterior which had not been there two days before. I have had a bit of a mouse/rat problem and between traps and bait station have killed 6, with at least another that I can hear in the attic. The skin was found at the place one of the mice had died from I assume poison.Just moved into the house 3 months ago, so am inheriting the problem. I did call Terminex who placed the bait station and several traps, and the station did kill one, although the other 5 were killed my my traps baited with 7-11 jerkey/sausage vs. none of theirs baited with peanut butter. So my kill ratio is better than theirs. Not sure I'm buying into Terminex at this point. All that said, I'm working on the mice/rats. The snake may be new on the scene. Because the skin was on the ground, I assume the snake is, although I also assume he may move into the attic. I have asked Terminex to send out a snake guy - evidently he's a specialized guy, like a termite guy. Do you have an opinion of Terminex resources? I did see your Dallas reference and may call him if I'm not comfortable with Terminex. As an aside, I loved the photos of your kitten confronting the snake. While in college I got a caiman which we'd tie up to a crouquet stake and let him roam around the apartment grass. The apartment cat came running over once stared down the caiman until he struck toward her. After jumping backwards, the cat just sat there looking at him, apparently never having experiencing a lizard (who she regularly caught,) being aggressive. I appreciate it, and thanks for the great info on your site.
I have a question a hope you can help me with, I live in a community in the desert and their is talk that rattlers can not climb stucco walls about 5ft. High, can you help to put this question to bed if or not able to climb small stucco wall. Thank you in advance!!!!
