I dont know if this is too late, but this just worked for me with in the last month ans a half.

I read on one of the boards here to tape - tape sticky side up on the floor. I put it on my window sills, and across every door in my house. My snake was loose at least a day and a half. The morning after i put the tape down I had caught the snake.

She was fine execpt for a few kinked scales around her neck, no doubt from struggling to get free, which only ends up getting more of the snake stuck.

If you try it mmake sure you check every peice daily, you'd hate to find that you caught the snake only for it to dehydrate on the tape.

Also try putting some in your basement or attaic.

Other people have suggested using a "minnow trap" (long wire tube with concave ends and an opening on each end)with a mose inside. The theory being that the snake can crawl in the opening to eat and not find his way out.

Good luck and post your results
