Thanks for the tip about the big stick in the bushes although I think I'll have my husband do that for me! We've also discovered we don't dare leave doors sitting open without screens on them as over the past three years we have caught three snakes in here, two of them copperheads! I used to live in Texas a few years ago, we were looking for a place out in the country until I opened the door of an abandoned shed and found a whole nest of rattlers. We decided we like our place in Arlington. Then we moved to Wi which is truly beautiful and doesn't have many snakes, just the harmless garter snakes.
I don't worry too much about chemicals as this is private land. We bought a house on 7 acres with a pond (thus the snakes) on a foreclosure sale. It's been a challenge but it's almost fixed up. Any good non cemical ideas for potato bugs on potato plants? We can hand pick them off the tomatoes but there just got to be too many on the potatoes.
