    ‘Snake House’ up for sale again
    by SHANNON SELF



    Cute little house.

    One article I read said that the owner opened the door to the pump house and a ball of hundreds of snakes fell on his head :eek:

    And to have to file bankruptcy.....after they were lied to (allegedly). I thought you could contest that if it wasn't properly disclosed? :snake:

    why Why WHY did I click on this thread, lol. Snakes - argh! Just the sight of words like "infested" and "slithering" cause faintness. Needless to say, I did not do myself proud in two encounters with snakes in my own house.

    OMG I would so love to snap that house up if funds were available!

    We are a snake lovin family and my two youngest (10 and 6) have been catching garter snakes since they could toddle. Often in summer, it is nothing for them to drag 10 to 20 snakes in from the back yard. I could have the kids help me clean up this mess in no time for no cost other than fun for my kids and get a good deal on the house at the same time!

    Well tlcox, you should contact Chase. They own the place now and said they needed a "snake lover" to take it. Sounds like you would fit the bill. All I can say is better you than me......the ball falling on my head would have been the end. Bet you could get a really good deal. Hope you like cold and snow.

    Would I be mean if I sent my husband an email with the link attached?

    He is terrified of snakes.

    I'll wait and see how he acts tonight...............:cool:

    I remember seeing a case like this on the news here about 20 years ago. Thousands of snakes were in the walls and the attic of an inhabited home. :noooo: I have no idea of the outcome because that was one news story I did NOT follow.

    I saw this!

    I think it was on Animal Planet called, Infested! They also profiled a house with ants, and a house with spiders. For the Snake House, they said that the house is built right in the wooded area of humid marshlands and thickets where the snakes breed constantly. They built a den under the house, and the show said that at least two owners had to move.

    Several exterminator tried everything and they could not get rid of the snakes. I believe it was said that they would have to raise the house, find some way to kill the whole den and keep other snakes from coming in, check and re-check the interior of the house, and reinforce it with concrete construction all around and under it so the sakes can't get under the house or potentially in it. I may not be sure about everything in the documentary. It's been awhile since I saw it.

    Has this been done? Is anyone living there now?
