a snake enters it, it gets stuck on the glue. To release the snake, you have to pour oil on it to get it
loose. Snakes love catching their pray alive, so placing dead bait will not interest them. You can use mice,
rodents or eggs as a bait to lure the snake in. There is also scented bait made especially for snakes that you

bait, and it is a good way of catching a lot of snakes at once. The problem with these Newton exterminator traps is that if you catch
a venomous snake, you also have to release it, and it can bite you once released. So this is a good way of catching
