Before I get started, I want to say sorry. BECAUSE I HATE SNAKES!!!!! I know that they eat rats and some even eat deadly snakes, but I just can't stand them. This morning I was walking back to my house and almost stepped on a snake!! I will admit I killed it on sight. I can't help it. If I see one from a distance and can tell for SURE it is not poisonous I will let it live. If however, it surprises me or is an unknown type, it is dead. No questions!!! I live in Georgia so we have many snakes that are poisonous and on top of that I live in a kinda swampy area. With that being said, I was wondering are guineas really snake killers or is that just hype? I could put up with the noise if I knew that they would do the trick. Thanks in advance.
