I went to Home Depot today and bought quikcrete. That stuff is heavy. It was hot today too, in the low 90's. I was so tired by the time I got home. I hope it is cooler tomorrow otherwise I don't see myself getting much outdoor work done.
After Home Depot I stopped at Do-It-Yourself Pest Control. I had never been in there before. It was great. I bought a bunch of glue traps. The clerk said that if I catch a live snake I can relocate it and then pour cooking oil over it and the snake will become unstuck. That's great...but if I catch a live snake I will be calling my snake relocation guy that I have on speed dial! They also had granules to spread around the perimeter to deter snakes. They smell like mothballs which snakes hate. Of course dogs aren't fond of the smell either. I also bought this 6 ft. long snake grabber so that I can grab a snake from a safe distance next time I see one. If I had had that thing when my first dog was bitten I wouldn't be having this problems right now (assuming it is the same snake). I could have grabbed it and sent it away.
