Even if it can be difficult, the snake maybe found in the house when they escape from their own enclosure. You may be thinking that it can be in different places but sometime it can be from different places that where you think it should be found. The snakes like to move around during the night and they move around the baseboard or around the walls. The first place where you should look around is behind the enclosure or near the cabinets or the bookcases. You may also check in the couches, chairs and kitchen appliance while you can also look around the cabinets. You can also look inside any box you may be having like bags, shoes, boots or wastebaskets. Look in the kitchen, laundry area or in the bath. When you find the holes in the cabinets or near the floor, you should mark them and use a duct tape on them. It is not likely for the snake to enter into the toilet but it may squoosh between the wall and the toilet tank.
Use some sound traps around the home by laying the plastic bags that make the crinkly sound from the grocery store. You can crumple them and to use them on the floor and on the exposed walls and near the sofa sets and other area. When you have finished, make sure that you put off the light and wait with a flash light. When the snake is sure that it is safe to go out, you will know where it is by passing over these plastic bags.
If you are too tired to wait for the snake, before you go to sleep use the cornstarch or flour on the doorway. The next morning, when the snake moves around in the doorway, you are going to see the trails that show where it went.
When the sound or the flour fails to work, use the prey into the liter soda bottle and put where the snake can get to it. The snake can enter into the bottle, eat the prey and becomes too fat to go out so you will find it in the place.
To make sure that the snake does not get out, always ensure that you use the enclosure that was been designed for the snakes only and that it kept the squishability and the tenacity of the snake in mind. The metal, makeshift latches and suitable enclosure cover are not good materials for snake enclosure.
