So... I go ahead and google it, and guess what, it's endemic to Australia, lol.

And you better remember it 'MATE', us Aussies don't mess around. We got the top 21 of the world's most 25 deadliest snakes right here.

We got Dingoes eating our babies and all kinds of crazy stuff going on here!

........... Yeah I know, now I'm just being stupid.

I completely agree.
Yet one might be wise to
reconsider living/raising a family
in an area that is infested with rattlesnakes.
Of particular concern is the fact that ,as you stated,(or OP)
they keep coming back.

Do you have a rodent problem?
That would attract them for sure.

If you think it is a water issue
purchase a small kiddie pool,or something
of that nature, and set it in the ground
in an area safely away from your home.

Fence it off with 2"x2" size wire,
and periodically fill it with water.
The rattlers will now have less need
to look for water around your home.

Otherwise, you will not only have
to kill every single one you come across,
but you will have to find their dens and
burn/smoke them out as well.

Make sure that you don't have any woodpiles,
junk, excess brush , etc. around your home
that would be good cover for snakes and rodents.

Watch where you step,

I'd pick up the rattler.
Years ago, I heard someone
shouting my name from upstairs.
I thought to myself, what the hell is it now.

Well , it was a friend standing petrified
in an upstairs room with a Cobra on the floor
in front of him doing its hooded dance.
I pushed him out of the way, and grabbed
what I think what might have have been a curtain rod
and pinned the snake. I picked it up and put it back
in its tank.

To this day, I 'm still pissed off at the irresponsible
owner and at myself for being so stupidly brave.

Now if it was a Puff Adder, I might not have
been so daring.

A Taipan is very territorial
and aggressive.

It will actually chase you down
with lightning speed.

At one point, the Taipan
was considered the most
dangerous serpent.

The cobra had a tank? So you had a pet cobra?

I had a roommate who was
an irresponsible herpetologist. (sp.)?
So ,yes, there were a lot of tanks,,,
Cobras,adders,rattlers,pit vipers,
mambas,constrictors,and more.

I had to handle and capture
these creatures for my
devil worshiping friend quite often.
It was a deadly situation.
Once upon a time.

Best regards, have fun, Wildmanimal
