I just had Comcast come out to my house to install a cable outlet. The guy says he needs to go through my attic to do it, so he goes up to have a look around, comes right back down. He says he's not installing any cable today, that apparently there's a snake in my attic.

So, yeah. Wow.

I called Critter Getter, and it's $125 for them to just come out and "assess" the situation on a weekday, would be more for that just for the assessment on a weekend, and then $$ on top of that for the removal. I also called the people that Capelouto recommended to me, but they haven't called back yet.

I really want to get rid of this thing as soon as possible.

Does anyone know of a good service to get rid of snakes? Or is anyone awesomely manly and strong enough to come stare at it with laser vision and/or otherwise get rid of it? I'm more than willing to negotiate a nice payment...

cross-posted.

First of all, I LOLed because it'd been forever since I thought about those darn badgers.

Second of all, try speaking parseltongue. Maybe Voldy's out to get you ;)

I am so itching to watch that video right now.

I dunno if Parseltongue would work. I pretty much only know how to say "open up"

Oh, and Voldy's dead. I hope. He did make that bridge collapse in May :-/

Originally I was going to say Voldy's ghost, but that didn't really work considering.

We did have a relatively calm hurricane season, so I'm pretty sure he's gone for good =)

LOL! Good title, but yeah, good luck with the snake. What kind is it anyways?

Seems like there was in fact, no snake, or that it left in those three hours...

Did you get a good look at it? If it's small and not poisonous, you can probably catch it/kill it/scare it off easily enough. Just wear heavy clothing and gloves and carry a stick and a bag. If it might be poisonous, I'd say call a professional. Better to spend $200 than risk going to the hospital.
