I'll try to make it brief. I am Russian living in United Arab Emirates (Arabian Gulf region). I have received a phone call from my mother who still lives in Russia asking me for advice for her friends. The problem is that they constantly encounter snakes at their Summer Cottage and are not so fond of it . (How lucky some people are!! I have been roaming around deserts days and nights looking for snakes, and some people just sit at home and snakes come to their own house :) ).
Anyhow, I’ve told her that her friends probably have rat/mice living & breeding in that area (or may be toad, etc.), that’s why snakes come there. What other reasons could there be? How can those people get rid of their “uninvited guests” using some common household methods or products (some special branded stuff could be hard to find in Russia).
Also, if any of you know which species of snakes could be native to Volgograd area, that’s a southern part of Russian Federation, slightly above between Black & Caspian seas? I am particularly interested in venomous species.
Thank you so much, guys, for all your help.
