Cahaba Snake Trap
Thanks for your time on the phone this morning. Following is my wife’s account of events here yesterday, at 7,200 ft elevation, in the hills near Weston, Colorado:
Today is July 20, 2018. It’s been ONE YEAR EXACTLY since I was bit by the rattlesnake at our backdoor at our cabin in Colorado. Well...late this afternoon I found this rattlesnake in our snake trap. Weird coincidence?! She is still alive, barely. Had to have been caught between 2-5:30pm today.
Happy anniversary to me,
Also, your expertise in helping identify this type of rattlesnake would be greatly appreciated. I’m very familiar with Western Diamondbacks in the SW Sonoran Desert region however this IS NOT one of those. This snake has NO diamond pattern, is slightly moss-green colored and sports a pointed tail with 8 small rattles. A local neighbor suggests it may be a “Pygmy Rattler” but he’s not native to this area either. There’s a myth that rattlers don’t exist above 6,000 feet but folks have seen/killed them as high as 8,000 in this neck-of-the-woods.
Thanks too for the 2-minute freeze tip to help release the insert paper... might prove helpful to others adding this next time instructions are printed?
Have a good weekend and I’ll be in touch.
Best regards, Gary

What makes our products economical is their long life and versatility. If your pest problem is something other than snakes, they can also double as lizard, insect, and rodent traps too.

We do our best to ship same-day on orders received before 2:00 p.m. because we understand urgency when it comes to animal invasions. If you need any help, please call Buddy Hawkins at (205) 967-8541 or check our FAQ page.
How To Choose the Correct Size Trap
The most important feature of a trap is the size because if it isn’t big enough, it won’t be effective. We offer a small snake and lizard trap about 16 inches long. This catches snakes up to 18 inches. For bigger pests, we offer a large32-inch trap that catches snakes up to 6 feet long. Whatever you’re dealing with, we have the product for you.
You need a trap that is free-standing, rigid, and works in all kinds of weather. We’re proud to say that ours meets all of those qualifications. At our company, we only believe in selling products that do their job 24 hours a day. They blend into their environment so well that you hardly notice their presence, and they’re perfectly safe for pets and kids.
How to Catch Multiple Snakes at Once
With us and our snake and insect trap on your side, there’s no need to fear even if there’s more than one unwelcome guest. Simply place it in cool, dark places where you’ve seen snakes. Just like in real estate, it’s all about location. After that, the second most essential feature of a trap is size. The best trap to use for multiple snake catches is the large 32-inch Lift-Top trap. This is one of 4 of our models available to choose from. We also offer a 32-inch foldable trap.
To humanely catch and release the snake and any of its friends, you’ll need to check the trap daily. When you’ve got them, remove them from the catch insert by using vegetable oil around the edge of the snake.
Where to Set Your Snake Trap
Be sure to place your trap anywhere it’s needed inside or outside. With 10 years of testing and 13 years on the market, our product is sure to bring you results with proper placement. Some areas we suggest are:
- Along walls
- Behind shrubbery
- Storage buildings
- Any where you need to place a trap
You Can Use Your Cahaba Snake Trap™ as an Insect Trap Too
Though we often think of bugs as mere pests, they can sometimes be dangerous. For example, the venom from a brown recluse spider is even more poisonous than that of a rattlesnake, though it causes less disease. This venom is toxic to cells and tissues, so it goes without saying that this is not a creature you want in your house. Fortunately, the small Cahaba Snake Trap™ is perfect for catching these creatures inside the home. If you see one or more insects, call us right away. We’ll give you what you need to get unwanted pests out of your home.
If you have any questions regarding our snake traps please contact our professionals, we are honored to keep you and your family safe, We’re based in Alabama, and serving nationwide.
