How to Catch a Snake
Snake catching is dangerous and should be done by trained professionals, especially when dealing with venomous snakes. Below we have prepared a guide with some simple solutions for snake catchign aroudn the home that may prove useful to you. If you don't have small children or pets, it's best to leave snakes that you find outdoors alone. They will move on and search for food as they can't possibly eat a human.
Catching a Snake With a Broom
Brooms are great for catching wildlife because they have long handles that keep you from being close to the nuisance wildlife that's found its way into your space. Set up a garbage can (hopefully one with flat sides) on the ground and pitch it downward by placing something under the end opposite from the opening. Then, using a broom, scoot the snake toward the can, and once it is inside the can, grab the can and cover the top of it with a pillow case. Quickly flip the cap over while holding the pillow case around the mouth of the can. Once the snake is in the pillow case, you can move the snake jsut about anywhere without a problem.
Netting a Snake
Not all nets will be able to be used to capture a snake based on the density of the net's grid. Some nets might not be the correct size and can allow the snake to escape easily. If you have the correct net, however, snake catching can be pretty simple and painless for both you and the snake. Scoop up the snake or coax it into the net with bait, and then relocate the snake outside of your home.
Pinning a Snake
If you do not have access to the proper tools for catching a snake, don't do it. However, if you are a trained professional who is familiar with how to improvise snake catching tools, this section is for you. You can easily make a pinning tool using a piece of tree branch with a Y-shaped end. Simply place the Y end on either side of the snake, just behind the head, and pin it to the ground so that it can be netted or removed by hand. This technique is dangerous and should not be practiced by amatures.
