Milwaukee Wisconsin Snake Situation: Hi, I live in Northeastern Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Bought a home about 2 years ago that had moisture issues in the crawlspace. I have diverted water with gutters/leaders, grading etc. so I don't believe the moisture problem is anywhere near what it was. The crawl space was home to many water snakes but I have since installed new vapor barrier, cleared out all debris and insulation etc. I went into my crawlspace this weekend to replace some hose bibs. Within ten feet of the access door I saw nearly 10 skins and droppings of all sizes. I can only imagine what I would have found if I went further..! These skins weren't there last summer/fall so my problem isn't solved obviously. There are A LOT of snakes down there. Fairly sure they are water snakes as I have killed a few around the house. Obviously they are eating something down there which doesn't make me feel much better! I don't mind an occasional snake, I understand they eat less desirable pests but that many?!?!! Man its hard to stomach going under there. Any suggestions? Thank You for any direction!! I feel like I know where they are coming in but I hate to seal that opening, trapping them in there...What to do...?
Rat snake, I figured as much. I hate to kill them because they do a lot of good. They keep the rodents down. We did have a problem with mice for a while but i caught them all over about a month with traps. I'm sure the scent drew it in. They still make me uncomfortable. i put a call in to the local wildlife center to give me a call. I've never had a fear of snakes until i was bitten by a copperhead inside of a phone pedestal while working for the phone company. I opened the pedestal and reached in to find a pair of wires. Upon doing so, I was nailed in the right arm. Luckily we carried snakes bite kits as part of our first aid kits. I used the blade to cut the bite marks open and then the vacuum plunger to pull out as much venom as i could. I still had to go to the local hospital and they gave me a shot of something which I assume was anti-venom or antibiotic. I still have a scare from the bite marks and the skin it started to destroy. Luckily I only have minor nerve damage. But it increased my general fear of them. Now i have an unhealthy respect for the entire species. It's amazing when as child I would pick up handfuls of baby snakes not even knowing what species they were. I guess he was lucky. Thanks again! I'll pick up some traps on Monday. if my memory serves me Rat snakes are non-agressive and shy. They prefer to hide and wait rather then seek out prey. They usually hide or travel against the foundations of homes rather be out in the open? Hopefully I will be able to trap it? I'm wondering what about the traps draws the snakes to them? Are they baited? Let me know if any special brand is better then others. Again I appreciate your expertise. Thanks Again.
