Snake in the ceiling

I have a HUGE problem....Luscious heard a strange noise in the ceiling above the kitchen and at the time i wasn't in..out with the band having a good time. I returned but couldn't hear it, she described it as sounding sort of like running water or paper rustling. Yesterday morning i heard it as well and there is only one thing that rustles like that... a snake!!!!!! we have had lizards,bats & mice in the ceiling so i know what they sound like but this is nothing like that!! How the hell it got there i have no idea, i know that the exterior walls are natural stone and have holes in so i assume it came in through one of them. I also know that when we were demolishing parts of the house we found rat runs through the walls so it must have used them to get into the ceiling...... I don't want it there!! it doesn't heed my thumping on the ceiling, just goes quite for a while then starts moving again! I have to find a way to get rid of it. The cats as you can see are not really interested in helping.... i may have to take up the floor above the kitchen and try to catch it unless someone has a better idea? gone for a drink..............

    Hmmmm! Over here we have two products - "Snake-A-Way", a snake repellent that disorientates the snake's nervous system, and, "Snake Guard", that is an actual human trap utilizing a type of glue that the snake sticks to. It can be released by pouring vegetable oil on it, which releases the glue. I don't know if they're available in France, though. Can't the locals help? They must encounter this problem from time to time. Good luck - and remember, it MAY not be the type that's venomous and attacks on sight!

    If I had a snake in the ceiling, I would have only one option - to walk out of the house, walk down the road, and never return.
    Assuming you haven't done that, what have you done?
