Is that true? Only non poison snakes will come into a house?

All snakes will enter where they feel they are sheltered. If you have a problem with them, take a look down at my post "snakes again".

There is a guy paying women to kill snakes any way they want. He pays 100 dollors a snake. Lots of pesky snakes means lots of money for some girl out there.

Email me for more info.

I saw a 5 foot rattlesnake curled up under my dads chair in the house after alot of rain up in central Texas many years ago so I would say they do

no, they will come in your home if the opportunity
is there, here in ne okla, we have copperheads
and 2or 3 species of rattelsnakes and cotton mouths, i have never heard of cottonmouths in the
house but after heavey rains i have seen them up
poarches, and rattlesnakes will try to avoid human
contact but its not uncommon for one to get in the
house, it is more likely here if you were to find
a poisonous snake in your home it would be a
copperhead. cottonmouths are very aggresive and
i don`t handle them, rattlesnakes and copperheads
are not very aggresive if left alone or handled
with skill. i hope your not having these problems.
take care, E.G.

baloney. We'd just finished outside rough cedar on my buddy's room addition, had sawed in the room cuz it was raining, and they hadn't delivered the glass door yet. Well next day my boy was piling the scraps in the wheelbarrow and yelled "snake!" I was clear off in the attic so i asked where and he said between me and the door. So i yelled hold still and scrambled down, grabbed a shovel and dispatched a 4-foot rattler that had been curled up under a wood scrap. Oh yeah he was in a house! In a future honeymoon bedroom, for that matter. Nobody ever did tell Dorothy. :)

that is right!
I have never seen poisonous snakes anywhere but outside!!
I have seen king snake inside and a rat snake.
I have never seen a copperhead inside or a watermocassin or a coral snake.
So poisonous snakes do not go indoors on purpose.
The prefer outdoors! So there you have it; the FACTS!!
I am an authority!! ;-)

I have a picture of an eastern diamond back that tried to climb in the bathtub with my wife, he met the same fate as any other man that would have tried that move!!!!!!

Yes but that evidently was a "house in progress" that does not count.
I meant a regular comlpletly finished, lived in house!!
I stand my ground!
Besides we dont even have rattlesnakes outside here!! LOL

Use to bother me when it flooded, it brought alot of unsightly sights, snakes , rats, muskrats, ducks, and others from afar., I once knew a family that 2 copperheads got in bedroom, when lady was making the bed, she was bitten on both heels...taken to the hosp, did fine, but talk about very careful about any openings in her home, she made sure things were tight and secure.

Fla,, has snakes everywhere, they will curl up and lay on stoops of homes, that is why it is important to turn lights on, so as not to step on any critter or startle it....

OK..Then that's it.. Dead Carp was not in a finished house..

Burrhead    Posted 06-13-2004 at 21:06:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
yeah and he had wood scraps in the floor.

Yeah that snake thought it found a wood pile!
you know how snakes like wood piles.
Now that is a dangerous place to stick a hand without careful examination.
