Too many snakes, I finally had to take action and capture them this weekend, I caught 9 in all, and 1 donation from a neighbor, for 10. At least 2 got away, so there's more...
I don't mind the occasional garden snake, they have their place, but when I can count 4 or 5 at a time sunning themselves in the front yard, it's time to go.
Now I didn't play any games with them, like the fellows on National Geographic, I just picked them up behind the head and put them in a bucket. They were a pretty good size, and quite lively, each about 12-15" long. If you sat quitely in the yard and waited in the sun, they just slowly start to come out of their holes, than you snag them. At one point I had 3 or 4 poking their heads up at a time.
No pictures, I want to forget the whole thing.
I released them in the woods at the local park.
