    Mothballs will absolutely work on snakes, mice, rats, etc.. Had to use those on our lake house in Louisiana. Mice got into the house, and the snakes followed the mice. Never actually saw a snake in the house, but found a couple of 6'+ snake skins inside. If you can find the entry point, close up the opening, otherwise, the infestation may re-occur once the mothball perfume wears off. Ground mothballs are what is sold as "snake repellent" by many stores.

    Man that would be fun to see! LOL

    That sticky board sounds good to me...had a small gardener snake in my basement bedroom as a kid get stuck to those sticky traps we used to capture bugs. He was definately stuck with no hope of getting away up until the point I contacted him with the 12 gauge...which proved to be plenty of power to remove the snake from the sticky trap.

    That stuff sounds like it would make for some good entertainment...chairs, floors, etc, depending on how hard is is to clean off.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    We have a doggy door where they get in the house occasionally and they're getting into the garage regularly, so I'll play around with some mothball deployment methods.
