Son came in a bit ago. Says there was small snake in the rat trap next to house. Couldn't see what kind.
What's a good way to catch them?
Don't want the small ones making our home theirs.

Grab them just behind the head with your pointer finger on top of the head. Then drop them in a sack and take them off somewhere to release.

You can catch all the snakes you want to, but I will never get close enough to one, poisonous or not , to even think about catching it in my hand. I just killed one the cat was playing with on our patio. I consider snakes like electricity. If you don't know anything about it leave it alone.

You probably should learn to identify the poisonous species before you pick one up. Even some non poisonous species can give you a bite.

One of my dogs was bitten by a rattle snake in the back yard today.

Not sure what part of the south you are in. But some snakes down here have rattles.They pop up by us now and than. So be careful.

I didn't know any snakes were poisonous, I thought some were venomous thou.
OK, so I just looked up both words and I am confused (more than I usually am).
I thought plants and chemicals were "poisonous", and animals like snakes and spiders were "venomous".
Are the words interchangeable?

I know the "word police" are out there someplace.

-WARNING- DON'T MESS WITH RATTLESNAKES!
They are fast. And I have seen what happens when a person or an animal get bit by one. I usually get about 5 or 6 of them a summer on our farm in Eastern Washington.
We also have "bull snakes" they only scare you to death when you see them but they will bite also if you step on one.
