    I had a rattler in my barn earlier this year, I tried to get him out when it was cool but he wouldn't reveal himself to me then. Later in the day after it got hot I went in (after my dog) and my dog had him mad and rattling in a hurry. 20 gauge seemed to be very effective on him. Since then she has revealed to me one more snake in the yard...she is a lab that constantly runs the yard looking for rabbits, so when she was sniffing around the wood pile a mama rattler took offense to her hunting routine and then came in contact with my rake. Similar thing happened last summer in the garden, dog was snooping around her hunting spots and got close enough to make one mad/rattle. So...my dog seems to make them mad/rattle and then I know they're around . All 3 times I don't think I would have known the snakes were around if it wasn't for her. She also knows to get back when she hears the rattle though, where some dogs may not known the danger. She also is up to date on her rattler vaccines. I'd rather send a dog in first to find the snake then follow behind for a clean up kill.

    Get some cats & feed them enough to keep them around. But don't feed them so much that they quit hunting. They will keep mice, rats, birds & everything knocked down. Same prey the snakes are after, also snakes don't like cats & will stay away.

    I would try to figure out where the snake got into your mobile home and seal it up so they cant get in. Check around drain pipes, water pipes, electric inlet, dryer vent, ect as those are the most likely places they would get in.

    If they didn't kill him I bet he is still in your house also.

    Run down to the pet store and pick up a Mongoose. That'll get rid of the snakes.

    The University of Google suggests that I can get a peice of plywood and coat it with Trapper glue adhesive, the same glue used to make mouse glue traps. It says that if a snake tries to crosss the plywood it gets stuck just like a mouse. I'm planning an all out assault, probably use a combination of glue boards, moth balls, .22 bird shot, and some kind of fumagation.
