Thai Rath published a feature story on the issue of snakes invading people’s homes in Thailand.
They spoke to construction engineers and a university vet who gave the benefit of their advice.
This might save people from the ignominy of being bitten on the rear end as has happened in several high profile cases recently.
One man needed 15 stitches to his sexual organs after a two metre python bit him in Soi Pradit Manutham 5 in Bangkok.
While a woman who had the presence of mind to grab and hold onto a three metre serpent in Bang Pakong was bitten on the posterior and left hand.
These incidents are just the tip of the iceberg, however, said the Thai media. Problems exist both in Bangkok and up country.
