How to Trap a Snake

Using traps is one of the persnickety method to catch Clarksville snakes in the compound. Traps could be administered with some attractants and baits. Since snakes fall under the bandwagon of animals that catch live food, you need to bait your trap with a thawed rodent like Tennessee rats. The effectiveness of these traps depends on the positioning and doing the trapping correctly.

Types of traps
There are various types of snake traps ranging in size and technique. You can find snappy traps which will crush the Tennessee snake’s skull once it gets inside the trap. There are also the live traps which will hold the critter until you decide what to do with it. You also need to find a trap that can accommodate the size of the target snake. Some of the common traps include:

- Professional snake trap

It is almost impossible to poison serpents due to one reason, they kill live animals and devour it whole. A snake cannot feed on dead animals. This is usually a challenge when you need to trap a Clarksville snake. To successfully bait a snake, you need to either get the scent of its prey like mice or find a live mouse.
