I'm with jester. I would have put an even bigger hole in that floor if I found something like that.

I would have probably patched the hole too.

I would have probably burned the damn house down. I don't play that game. I'm even worse with spider's. I'd rather lose a testical in a sewing accident than have a freaking spider on me.

I get them in the tractor sheds, never in the house. Lots of the neighbors get 'em in their houses though, but usually they don't get past the garage.

There's one house a little north of me that is built into the hillside (its actually a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house) where there are cracks that the snakes can get inside. I know a gal who was cleaning that house every week and she would sweep baby rattlers outside frequently.

You just gotta show 'em who the boss is!

Doing the rattler or copperhead dance out in the yard is bad enough but when I start doing it inside the house???? Oh no!!!! Theres not enough room for that.

I have only been struck at once in my life and it was because I was being stupid and showing off.


One time I found a female rattler in the tractor shed early one cool morning, she didn't have any rattles (her tail had been crushed somehow- probably by the tractor LOL!) so I killed her and then turned over the piece of plywood I had pulled her out of and there was her whole brood of little 5-inch rattleworms so small they just had a little button where the rattle goes, not enough to make any noise. There were too many of them for me to wrangle inside, so I got a shovel and scooped them out into the road next to the shed where I could keep an eye on them and none could escape unseen. As soon as they started warming up on the gravel they started going off like popcorn, striking at the air, each other, whatever. Just rapid-fire Pop! Pop! Pop! like a bunch of machine guns. It was the funniest thing in the world because they were striking indiscriminately at everything and anything yet not trying to move anywhere (normally snakes- rattlers included- will try to get away rather than try and fight). Anyhow, I killed about a dozen snakes that day.

The scary thing is that I have heard that the babies are more dangerous because they do exactly what I observed, and if they do make contact with you they inject their whole load of venom in you in one shot. An adult will only inject a small amount of what they carry onboard, so the bite is not as bad. I could see the little bastards doing that given how they behaved.

Agreed. Too much crimp.
