FACT 1: 99% of all snakes won’t hurt you, and even the venomous ones just want to be left alone.
That’s just true. However…
FACT 2: I don’t care.
The hallmark of a phobia is that it’s an UNREASONABLE fear. I have that. About snakes. Like the garter snakes in the video below, they creep me out. Mentally, I know I could pick one up, let it slither (EW!) over my face and down my pants, and I’d be fine. But I. Don’t. Care.
If I had to get rid of one, it’d be a flame thrower or a machine gun – nothing less would do. Fortuantely, there are people you can call for that.
If you need snake removal near Overland Park, there are a number of good local companies that’ll do it, but I like the guys in this video, AnimalSolutionsPCI.com. If you’re in Overland Park, look ’em up.
Snazzy video, too!
