Labor Day was one where I pulled two wheel barrels of weeds and I only went outside to cut the snake out of my bird netting which protects my hosta from the roving deer herd. I have had the bad luck of catching three snakes this year so next year I plan to omit the netting and just spray the hosta with deer repellent.
Now this tomboy woman is not afraid of snakes nor will I run from them. Heck I am much bigger than them. Most will run from y'all. My aversion to getting them out of the netting is the odor. I keep saying to myself as I whack away the netting "Breath through your mouth, breath through your mouth. "
The kitty justice is by the time you find them in the netting they are VERY DEAD.
