Many times I see it posted that snakes shouldn't be killed, rehomed, etc., because they are great for keeping the rat/mouse population under control. I question this though. If a snake only eats once a month, and a mouse/rat can breed rapidly, then explain how that snake eating a mouse or rat a month is going to help anything. My cat can kill far more rats/mice than a snake can. Plus my cat doesn't eat eggs. So would someone please explain the logic behind keeping a snake around for control of the rodents?
