Last month my DH put in a new washer and dryer in my daughters home but the vent was a bit smaller than the one that had been in place which left a small gap around it, i told her to pick up a can of spray foam when she was in town and i would seal it up for her after asking her a couple times if she had gotten it i figured once a mouse showed up in her house she would get the hint and pick some up. Well right about dark she came over screaming there was a snake in her kitchen and it went under the stove . I got over there and could see it's little tail and asked for a flash lite as i was not pulling the stove out and grabbing it till i see what kind it was, i turned around and she was standing on a chair telling me she did not have a flash lite , so she called her dad and he brought his over. It was just a little juvenile rat snake so i had her dad pull out the stove and i grabbed the big killer and took it over to my place across the easement and turned it loose i went back and washed the musk off my arm and she was gone didn't know what was up except she said before i left with the killer that she had been having dreams about snakes in the house and perhaps she went to grandmas house to sleep. Well she soon returned with 5 cans of spray foam to fix the gap around the dryer vent only need one can Bet she will listen to mom from now on i told her i was sorry for laughing so hard at her but could not help myself after all she was raised in here and there have always been snakes here and i just could not see what all the fuss was about especially since the momma snake lives in her flower bed and she see her all the time . Later on i went back to check on here and she had every light in the house off except the bedroom and she was talking on the phone with her BF , now if i was so scared of something like that i would heve had every light on in the house and slep that way for a few days till i settled down. Don't know how this country girl got to be such a drama queen This is not my photo ,just what the snake looked like.
