About Rattlesnake HQ

The Rattlesnake HQ site is designed to be a hub of information for people who encounter rattlesnakes, think they may have a nest nearby, or are just curious. I cover a wide range of topics from how to get rid of them, deter them in the first place, what is likely to attract them, and much more.

This site is run by Ellis Garvin who grew up around snakes in central Texas but became a snake handler in the foothills of Grass Valley in northern California.
