Pests are wily creatures. They always find a way to get through the smallest nooks and crannies, then take up residence as squatters in our homes. It’s unavoidable, but some places have it worse than others. Only female mosquitoes have the necessary mouthparts for sucking blood, but once the weather warms up a little more, it will still seem like they’re everywhere.
Where mosquitoes are annoying, they’re minimally harmful is most areas. Good porch netting will keep them at bay while you enjoy a cool beverage while relaxing on a summer evening. One Florida woman had an unexpected intruder that gave her quite the fright.
Amanda Wise was in her laundry room folding clothes when she went to reach back into the dryer and saw a snake curled up in with the freshly dried clothing. Being cold-blooded creatures, snakes generally like to find warm places to bask and get toasty. Perfect spot for that? A nice pile of warm, newly dried laundry. That was enough for her, she got out of there as fast as possible.
“If there’s one thing I am terrified of (other than flying) it’s snakes. I have never ran so fast in my life. My heart was racing, my legs were shaking and I burst into a sweat,” she said on Facebook.
Fortunately, her husband was there to roust the relaxing reptile and return it to its proper home outdoors. The snake turned out to be a Corn snake, one of the safest snakes on the planet, so no one was ever in any real danger. But, danger or not, there’s nothing that’ll scare you quite like reaching into your dryer to fold clothes and finding a snake sleeping in the socks!
