((((((shudder))))
not being much help am I? Sorry, I am not fond of snakes, mice or spiders.
I just read this idea you can try..
Catch the snake with a glue trap. If you suspect there may be a snake in your attic, garage, basement or elsewhere in your house, lay out glue traps along the walls in these areas. Snakes crawl over the traps and get stuck
praying for you

Good evening! Hope you're all enjoying your evening. I'm working the weekend and so is DH and I am getting ready to head to work now, but I just wanted to stop by real quick and say hello! We won't be doing much, except doing things around the house.

Talk to you all tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend!
