Question:
I have snakes living under my house. I believe they are king snakes. How can I get rid of them?


Replies:
Get rid of them??? If they are king snakes, lucky you! They are great mouse and rat killers! and they will do you no harm. They are also a handsome snake too. They will move on when the food supply diminishes.
