I used to brumate once I started breeding but due to inconsistent and uncontrollably cold temps where I used to brumate my snakes (in the garage). I stopped the practice and have found that it has no negative side effects on my snakes nor their ability to mate. In fact, my snakes have proven time and again that they generally prefer to mate in the Fall and Winter time anyways.

I am now of the firm belief that most breeders that choose to brumate these days mainly do so to get a break from consistent maintenance of their collection for a few months (while saving money as well). Some of these people still cling to the unproven belief that it is important to the overall welfare of the animal. I have yet to see any evidence proving this other than conjecture based on anecdotes.
