A seven-button rattlesnake found in a customer’s shed. Trevor Cuthill removed the rattlesnake and killed it.
Calaveras County, CA. July 2014.
The Story: Around July 20th Trevor was at a customer’s house, for a mouse call. The rodent activity was in the tack room (where they keep horse equipment). Upon opening the door there was a 7 button rattlesnake along the back wall. He scooped the snake up on his ‘webber pole’, removed it from tack room, and then killed it with a shovel.
Paul Cooper, approximately 8 August 2014, brought in maggot specimens found, in abundance, in cracks of driveway, at a house in Murphys Ca. We cultured the maggots. Below are pictures of a fly that emerged. 16 August 2014.
