I Ate the Last Home Inspector

Home Inspector with Home Inspection Carolina

snake found on charlotte home inspection

Charlotte home inspector Chip Sprague got quite a surprized when he did his inspection off Rocky River Rd today near Concord NC.  He was performing his normal routine checking along the crawl space foundation wall when out pops this large king snake who was not to happy to have an intruder in his crawl space.  Chip said after he regained his composure to get his camera out and take a picture the snake was about 7ft long and about 2-3 inches in diameter at his thickest.  Chip said "You know that thing they alows say about them being more afraid of you then you are of them?  Well that's a lie"  The potential buyers say they are not moving forward on this deal until Critter Control has come out and freed the crawl space of any and all snakes and screens are put on the crawl space vents.

If the snake is calling that crawl space home there is a food source nearby. I would be more worried about a rodent problem than I would a "good" snake.

Good morning Preston. Although scary, I enjoyed your post. Only a professional would worry about getting a picture of the snake. Good job. Have a safe weekend.

I only have one question. . .Did the snake serve up the home inspector with fava beans and a fine Chianti?  Sorry, it seemed only fitting to quote a line from Hanibal Lechtor, from "Silence of the Lambs". . .:-)
