Mowed a bunch today... just to not give snakes a close place to my house and shop. Killed two snakes in that area, a small copperhead and a medium chicken snake.
We do have rat snake and king snakes in the area, I leave those alone.
Yep! We have almost 9 ac and I keep 6 mowed short - no place for secret snakes! The other acreage is a wooded ravine, don't go down there much and never in warm months when snakes & ticks are active!
