Hi!Can anyone tell me a way to keep rattlesnakes away? I have pets (dogs and a cat) that I don't won't to risk poisoning but I found a timber rattlesnake in the childrens playhouse... the snakes have to go! Any suggestions?

Guineas can control small snakes and Kingsnakes
will kill adult snakes. I catch and remove snakes
to a more remote area, but I don`t advise that.

Get more cats. I have heard that timber rattlers are pretty much extinct in our part of the world because of fire ants. They eradicated Bob White quail and a few other native species that lay eggs on the ground. I'll gladly send you some ants if you give me your address. Cats really are good snake deterrants as are guineas, or so I've heard. If you can tolerate guineas, that might be a good investment.

After the fire ants have done their job and start over populating your area you’ll need to import some armadillo’s and skunk’s. I can help with the skunks. You may have all I got if you can pet them. You’ll have to talk to ~Lenore about her giving up her armadillo.
