Kansas City Missouri Snake Situation: I searched and found your very helpful website. We have a snake in our basement. My husband saw the shed skin in the rafters of our basement. It is a pretty large snake skin. We have a farm in Kansas City Missouri and it is not unusual for us to see snakes and shed snake skins outside. Some of the skins have been amazingly large. I had a pet grass snake growing up and caught snakes frequently. I never harmed them. My husband is used to snakes also. Neither of us is afraid of snakes but usually, when they are outside, we leave them alone. I do not like having an unknown snake in our house. I'm worried that it may be poisonous. Our house was built in 1941 so I'm certain there are plenty of holes. My biggest fear is that the snake is going to appear in our living area. It could be anywhere. I'm certain we cannot afford to hire a professional. Our only income is social security so there aren't a lot of extra funds for this. Is it likely the snake will go back outside when the weather gets warm again? On the upside, we did not have our usual problem with mice and rats this winter. We had been remarking on this just before we found the snake skin. The skin is still in the rafters, I was hoping to find someone local who could identify the snake so we'd know how serious this problem is. I thought maybe Cornell Cooperative Extension would have someone but haven't found that info on their website. I do not want to catch the snake myself, and I don't want my husband to attempt it. He's nearly 70, in good shape but has already had a triple bypass. I can't imagine a snake bite would be good for him. He seems to think that he can catch it if needed. I don't trust my ability to identify the snake, it's been too many years since I handled them. I'd really like to get rid of this. If you don't think it will leave on its own, I will need to buy a snake trap. Hate to do that for one snake but also hate to live with it running (slithering) around my house. Sorry this is so long. Thank you for any advice you can provide.
