Thankfully, the snakes were all found to be harmless rat snakes. That didn't take away from the surprise discovery!
Dealing with a pest problem at home can be a task, especially when you're dealing with mice. The tricky little creatures tend to destroy property, and you can't really poison them because they could die in a hidden crevasse deep inside your home, stinking up the place in the bargain.
Which is why a lot of folks resort to sticky traps. These pest control sheets are lined with super strength glue which holds the pest in place so that one can get rid of it in a proper manner. One family in Texas decided to put down a bunch of sticky tapes to deal with their mouse problem.
But what they got instead was a shock of a lifetime! Danny Brown, the owner of the home, had placed the sticky tapes all over his property to catch a little mouse that was spotted in the family house. Instead, he was met with a small collection of angry snakes stuck in the sticky sheets.
He posted the picture of the trapped snakes on his Facebook page, admitting that the incident scared him a little. "That's an indication that a snake nest might be close by or even in our house," explained Brown in his Facebook post.
Brown told the Charlotte Observer that he and his wife Mary Jane were now worried about the snakes popping up when they're in the privacy of their bathrooms. Initially, Brown thought that the trapped serpents were copperheads, but people on social media quelled his fears, confirming the fact that the snakes were only harmless rat snakes.
The shocked Greenville-based family has now resorted to placing the sticky traps all over their new property in the hopes of catching the serpents alive. "Sticky traps work very well for catching snakes alive," said Brown in his Facebook post.
Hopefully, the reptile problem shouldn't snake itself into their house, again!
