Well...last night there was plenty of excitement for all at my place. All 3 of my kids are home (ages 18, 20, 22), and three of their friends were visiting late. About 10:30pm just as I dozed off there was all sorts of commotion outside our bedroom door, and my wife and I angrily called out "BE QUIET OUT THERE!!" Then we heard a reply no one wants to hear: "There's a SNAKE in the house!"

My son Luke had seen the snake slither under the folding louvre doors to a hall closet. After everyone stopped freaking out Luke and I pulled out all the stuff on the closet floor, and the snake wasn't hard to find - between 3-4ft rat snake, coiled up in the corner hissing at us! LOL. While I was devising a plan, Luke returned from the kitchen with an oven mitt, reached in and grabbed the snake by its head, marched down the hallway with the girls - mostly my wife - shrieking, and hurled it off the front porch into the yard just like an old pro!

My wife is still on edge, convinced there are more. But after a little investigative work I'm pretty sure this was a singular event. I found where a piece of weather stripping under the kitchen door had pulled loose leaving a gap large enough to accommodate a skinny snake with a small head. Watching how our cats basically tracked the snake's scent through the den to the closet I'd bet money that snake was looking for a meal around our kitchen door and may have been attracted to either the smells or the cooler air coming from underneath the door.

Certainly an eventful Sunday night!

I hate snakes. They are so disgusting to me. And I also have the same problem. We have a lot of snakes in our region especially we face them when they start mating season. I can suggest you to use the snake repellent to avoid such situations in future and keep your family in safety. I use Snake Defense Natural Snake Repellent. . It works. Also, I used Ortho Snake-B-Gon Snake Repellent Granules. They also work well.

We have seen a ton of snakes this year and the majority have been poisonous...especially rattlesnakes.

I was in the Wal Mart parking lot the other day and some people were yelling about a snake being near their car. I walked over and saw it was a chicken snake. The lady was about to poop herself so I eased in and grabbed him behind the head. He ended up being able to twist around and bite me on the knuckle of my middle finger. It felt like getting stuck with a couple needles and bled a bit but the lady was able to get in her car. My wife didn’t care much for the idea though...lol.
