    How to catch a snake? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Ok, I have hubbed on the dangers of snakes. I even had a fellow hubber do a hub in my honor about the snake point of view, lol. Now I am accustomed to living in the city and have moved to a rural area. I was preparing to do yardwork and lifted up a board and saw a snake under, I dropped the board and ran. Though my location has changed my issue hasn't, so how do I get rid of the snake? Is there someone in the yellow pages like animal control that will remove it?

    Welcome to rural life lol. I'm from and grew up in the country, and I've definitely seen my fair share of snakes. No matter how many times I see them, I never get used to it. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that if you call animal control and tell them about it, they will come and get the snake. Since you've lifted the board up, the snake might have crawled away by now as well. Good luck to you.

    Finally got through to animal control and apparently they don't have animal control in this county for a year now. I wonder, how is that possible. And apparently getting rid of snakes is a problem for the terminix man. The edumacion you get in small towns apparently snakes are not pets or animals, but rodents.

      Wow! Sorry to hear that. I would suggest you get some moth balls or snake repellent and put it around your house and in your yard. That's normally what I do every summer, and it's been years since I've seen a snake around my house.
