Snake fence exclusion has a medium to low success rate

Threadsnakes are very small, thin snakes that resemble worms. They live almost exclusively underground, and are rarely seen on the surface. They are usually found after rain, or while gardening. They are also occasionally found drowned in pools.

Threadsnakes are completely harmless and never bite. They are great for homes, since they eat termite larvae, and can help reduce termites on a property. If one is found, it should be left alone or moved to a shaded part of the yard.
