6. I am not a good shot, will bird shot work? There's nothing smaller than a rifle to use? I know how

important snakes are to the balance of nature that's why I've relocated them for the past 25+ years but this is getting dangerous. I keep my property cleared but there's a property owner around me that doesn't. I call her trailer trash and that's being nice. The squirrels and packrats are in abundance, too, and I know they're feed for snakes. It just seems with climate change there's no way to keep the nature balance like I used to be able to do and it's just me and my animals so my safety and theirs must be a priority. Thanks for responding. The snake I caught last night spent the night in a bucket and he was still really POd this morning when I took him up the road and relocated him. The problem with relocating the snake where I do is that it means there are more snakes in the conserved area where people walk their dogs and small children and without fail there's 2 or 3 snake bite incidents every year up there.
