Why You Should Not Kill Snakes With Fire [VIDEO]

A woman not afraid of snakes, doused a serpent with gasoline and set it ablaze. That’s when the cold blooded animal took the fire to the woman’s home. Was it revenge or just mere coincidence? Watch a video of the police call and the fire.

When asked by dispatch what the emergency was, the Texas woman answered, “We were trying to kill a snake with fire. It done caught the house. Yes, the house is on fire. Could you hurry up please?”

Instead of using gasoline and fire, what could the woman have used to expel the creature? A quick Google search of ‘how to kill a snake’ gave me just what I was looking for and more.

On, the writer first explains why not all snakes should be killed.

Most snakes do not need to be killed. That is a hard concept for some of the persnickety homeowners out there, but it is the reality. Snakes are very beneficial to the environment, killing problematic rodents and keeping those populations in check. The majority of snakes on a property are not poisonous and pose no immediate danger to a pet or a child.

  • A snake only strikes if given a reason – strikes occur when provoked.
  • Almost all snakes that people see are harmless, and of course, beneficial to have around.
  • Only a few venomous bites occur in the US per year – and all of them happen when people are attempting to kill or get rid of the snakes. Just leave ’em alone!
 Options for removing snakes:
  • Call a professional to have the snake removed
  • Catch the snake in a snake trap
  • Use snake repelant
  • Use a long shovel to guide the snake to another location
  • DO NOT try to step on
  • DO NOT use a mouse trap like killing device
