Default practical question

Has anyone used those sticky rattlesnake traps? I wouldn't normally kill a snake, but there's a rattler hanging around my chicken coop that I want to get rid of (I've got two kids).

Thanks

I bet one of the resident rattler lovers who post on here would come remove it for you.

I wonder if they are like the sticky traps you can get for mice. Not sure how you'd safely remove a rattler without being bit. And, I don't intend to find out.

We tried to use those sticky traps for mice, but we kept catching lizards instead. I managed to remove the lizards from the traps, but would never want to try it with a rattler (the lizards were a bit unhappy about the situation). We stopped using those types of traps.

Here's the link to the sticky trap I found.

Snake Trap - Snake Removal

The concept is a little gross, but I'm just not sure what else to do.

With two kids, I think I'd dispatch it to the happy hunting ground of snakes. Its not worth the risk, imo. Kids come first.

Train a mongoose to hunt them. But must check to see if they are legal to have in your state.

Watch this short video. Warning it is Kind of Graphic.
