Brown Treesnakes FAQs - 15 Found

Are brown Treesnakes attracted to the heat or high frequency oscillations of the power lines? If so, could something like this be developed to attract snakes?

Unfortunately, it isn't the heat or frequency of the current in the lines that attracts the snakes.  For an arboreal snake, the poles and power lines are easy to climb and attractive to snakes because they are elevated.  When searching for food and daytime refugia, these surfaces are as appealing as nearby trees and foliage.
