    Was at a small commercial today and the secretary told me the snakes were so bold they were laying on top of the bushes. So she asked if I could do something besides throwing them out back in the fields. Needless to say but Stihl 4 snakes 0. Nothing to big 2 were 2 feet and the other 2 about 15 inches. All gardeners I think.

    Yeah, that would suck! I feel fortunate to only have run into 2 small snakes so far this year. I killed em b4 I even saw em, while I was trimming around the sides of 2 different houses. Kinda felt sorry for the little snakes but there was nothing I could do at that point.

    The big poisonous ones though, I wouldn't have any pity on if they were a threat to me or someone else. I think I'd rather shoot it with a pellet gun or something than to make a mess, but then I don't own a pellet gun.
