mice chaser

I have used the search feature but can't find the guy who was having mouse problems in his garage. This little guy (5' long) showed up in my shop on Friday, and slithers all around while I am working in there. I guess he is looking for lunch. He is a welcome guest by any means !!!

Snakes don't bother me, or my wife, so I say COOL! What kind of snake is it? I see no markings.
I have to rely on traps.

It's actually a Rat Snake. No markings but distinctively the blackest black I have ever seen. They dine primarily on rats, mice and an occasional chicken egg for dessert. It's OK, he deserves it.

I think he'd need a whole nest of snakes from the sound of it.

Thanks, Vic, I sent a pic to the OP on that one, too.

I don't mind rat snakes either as they get rid of mice and rats. Trouble is the neighbors around here will kill snakes like that that are not poisonous. I let them live as my father told me which snakes are poisonous and which are not. I too would personally rather have the snake than have mice or rats.
