I've just read most of your site. I have not killed any snakes, and I hope I don't have to. I live in Scranton PA, about a quarter mile from one of our many bays. My landlord has two boats on our property that he has asked me to clean. I have just cleared the lot of brush from immediately around the two boats. I found no snakes. I have seen 1 gray cottonmouth near my property since I've lived here, for 8 years. But, we've had a lot of rain recently, and I am concerned about the cottonmouths nesting in one of the boats. Short of calling the public animal control, what kind of advice can you give me about incident prevention and or removal solutions? I am a camper and wilderness lover. I live my life according to the idea that outside belongs to the critters and inside belongs to me. So, I don't want to see harm come to any of us; (yes, I am scared of snakes, and, I'm also visually impaired. So, I might not be able to see snakes nesting in a corner.)As I think I mentioned, I read your web site fairly thoroughly, and although my question was covered in a general way, (and we are mostly in agreement,) I am asking about a probable scenario that I hope I don't have to call in the "authorities to resolve." Please re-examine the email when you return. I will also consult the list on your site regarding local resources. In the best of all worlds, there are no snakes on the boats, and I am pretty good about preparing for wildlife situations and staying safe and happy. Even though I don't like (fear) snakes, I don't want to do them any harm, if at all possible; and I understand that they bear me no malice.
