Hello all, i have had a serious problem with snakes this year. I have lost close to 100 eggs in the past 3 months. I went about a hour after dark about a month ago and killed a 5ft+ rat snake. Thought he was a copperhead in the dark... Then i seen a water moccasin about 6ft from the coop around 5 or 6 in the evening. I have checked early morning and about a hour after dark at the latest. I am missing this other snake / snakes. Should i go check at 3am? Whats the most common time to catch one? When i get a few more bucks I'm going to get some minnow traps and try that out. (seen that here) In the past 72 hrs it has got 10 eggs. It dont like the golf balls either, seems to move them out of the way.
