Thanks for all your helpful tips on the best foods to get our mouse (or family of mice) into the trap. We were all set with our trap full or peanut butter and bread when we noticed something on top of our makeshift kitchen door. And when I say we noticed, I mean I walked through the door about 10 times before Will noticed haha. Our friendly not so little snake was back, and this time in our house on top of our door!
To say we were startled would be an understatement. I have a feeling this is the same guy we saw a couple of month ago and maybe the same fella that scared me half to death in the bathroom last year, haha. I think he just wants to be our friend but just isn't very good at not sneaking up on us.

From the research we have done in the past we believe this guy is a non poisonous Black Ratsnake. He seems to be pretty darn docile. He had no problem with us taking his picture, and he just sat there kind of checking us out too. From what we could tell he looked to be over three feet long!
We weren't able to move him because we had so much construction stuff in the way, so we left the door open for him in the hopes he will find himself out. In hindsight this morning we probably should have moved everything and helped him outside, because we couldn't find him this morning, but I guess if he still is in the house we shouldn't have anymore problems with mice. I'm sure if we do come across him again, I will be letting you know, haha.
