Okay, here it is….. 45 rattlesnakes. Our day started off with a quick removal in Woodson, Texas. After the Woodson removal, we headed back south to a house between Baird and Albany. Due to the high winds, their tv/cable was acting up, so a gentleman crawled under to see what was going on. He saw a “few” snakes and quickly crawled out…. The interesting thing here was they only see a few each year, their yard was very well kept and their house was nice and clean…. My point is, we run into this scenario often, and people don’t think it can happen to them. As I stated in the teaser video, rattlesnakes don’t care how nice your house is or what kind car you drive- they care simply about survival. We arrived around lunchtime and as soon as I crawled under I could immediately see that there was far more than a “few.” 😜The video will take over from here… If you’d like an inspection/removal, need rattlesnake avoidance training for your dog, or are interested in snake-proof fencing, please let me know.

A homeowner in West Texas reported a slithering problem when he found 45 rattlesnakes living underneath his house.

The Big Country Snake Removal company of Albany about 35 miles northeast of Abilene shared this unique story on their Facebook page.

Big Country Snake Removal reports the animals were found in a crawl space under the home in Albany.

The snakes were discovered after the homeowner went under the home to see why his cable service was acting up.

He quickly got away after seeing what he thought was a few snakes.

And then, it became a few more. And then, a few more.

Big Country’s owner described the harrowing removal on Facebook.

But it could have been worse. Big Country says they’ve removed up to 88 snakes from a home before.

Only in Texas.
