Name: Rebecca C.
I live in the country--no pond or lake. My ditch has
water in it all the time because of a septic system. I have water
moccasions. I do not know what to do. Snake pellets have warnings to
not use on moccasions. Yes, I have identified them correctly. The two
biggest were approximately four feet long. They have the cotton mouth
and the viper shape mouth. They have an olive color with kind of diamond
designs. They never run away and I am scared to take a shovel to them
anymore. Their skin is very tough. I am having my septic system redone
but what else can I do.
This is definitely a job for a professional exterminator!!! You also may
get a lead from your county extension service (Dept. of Agriculture).
