He's not, but not for every one/every place. Their thick skin/fat is pretty effective a deterrent for 'fang penitration.'One the Yanks I know says that the best animal to have around to control snakes is a pig. He claims they will eat poisonous snakes.
I have no clue if he's having me on or what.
It’s very old fashioned. You need a lot of horses, milked venom from the snakes and a bit of time. The vet said it could only be sourced from Poland at the time. It could be EU regs possibly tariffing out cheaper sources. If you have to pay market price, the adder serum is at the lower end of the snake...Strange, what's the reasoning behind that ?
Adders hibernate in traditional sites that may contain more than a few. Hibernation sites are below ground and below the frost line. Not much you can do to create a hibernation site. Best to protect any that are found. Nearby sites are usually indicated by small groups sunning themselves in early spring.Whilst we're on the subject of Adders/Grass snakes etc, Is there anything I can make as a hibernation box for Snakes? Maybe something like a Hedgehog box, full of dry leaves and mosses? I want to make sure they stick around for good
