Flukers Reptile - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Have you replaced the unit...I bet the cord inside the socket is shorted...If you are capable ....unplug the light unit and disassemble the plastic or ceramic or metal socket. Unscrew the wires from the terminals and remember which terminal goes to which wire ...the power / hot side is usually indicated by a GOLD / Brass terminal. The common side is silver. Cheaper sockets make no distinction. So mark 1 side with a marker...simple. Another good thing to know is the receptacle that you plug it into...the larger grounded side is the "common" side of the receptacle. and the Hot / POWER side is the smaller prong.

It may have blown. Make sure the electrical connection inside the socket is bent up enough to handle modern fat neck bulbs that don't screw in far enough. Some lamps have a thermal cutoff that cycles when it is cool enough and turns on again.

6 week old babies don't really eat food, you should really be feeding natural milk direct from the babies mother, if you are unable or do not want to feed from the mother there are many baby specific milks on sale. Note that some babies will not take some of these so you may have to swap until you get the 1 that is liked. Hope this helps

It depends..... white diamonds make it a California King Snake. Dark brown to black chain like make it a Diamond Backed Water Snake. Or if it consists of a series of diamonds with an outer frame of white, an inner frame of dark brown and a mottled pattern in the center and a rattle, it's a Western Diamondback....... Where do you live?

Sounds like normal behavior as they do like to hide. Unless he or she does not come out to eat or drink then I would consult a vet. Is there any possibility that you may have a pregnant female? Has there been any change in conditions in your habitat or home? Lizards do not adapt well to changes at times and will hide.

Hello, Taylor -

In case you don't realize it, Fixya.com is a website intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about REPAIRING THINGS.

If you reside where there are public libraries, I suggest you locate the library nearest you and visit it when it is scheduled to be open. A librarian can help you find answers to all your snake questions.

Best wishes.

Best Ways to Get Rid of Lizards
1. Egg Shells: Lizards will leave the place because the odour of eggs will make lizards assume that there is another organism present in the premises. Keep some eggshells around the corners of your house, doors, and windows.
2. Coffee Powder
This is a very effective method to get rid of lizards. Combine tobacco and coffee powder and make balls. Keep the prepared balls on every corner of the house and the places where lizards hide the most. After eating these balls, they will either die or move away from your house
.3. Garlic
Lizards cannot stand the smell of garlic. This remedy may sound weird to you, but hanging some garlic cloves around your house will keep the lizards away

  • Alternatively, you can place some garlic cloves in the corners and the entrances of the house or spray garlic juice in the lizard-prone areas.
4. Pepper Spray
Pepper spray irritates lizards. This remedy will make them run away. Prepare a solution by mixing crushed black pepper and water. Spray this solution all around the house, in kitchen racks, under the stove, fridge and tube light corners.
5. Onion
Onion contains sulphur compounds which are responsible for bad odour. Lizards can't tolerate the pungent smell of onion. Hang some onions around all the doors, windows and all the other possible entrances. Or else, keep some onions in the areas encroached by the lizards. This creepy reptile will leave the place soon.

Eastern kingsnakes are large -- 36 - 48 in (90-122 cm) -- shiny-black, smooth-scaled snakes with white or yellow chain-link bands that cross the back and connect along the sides. Because of this pattern, this species is also referred to as the chain kingsnake.

The first step in keeping snakes away from your house is to control the factors that are attracting them there in the first place. It is time to roll up your sleeves and do some work in your yard. Remove weeds, excess vegetation, piles of debris and any other areas where snakes can hide. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Keep-Snakes-Away-From-Your-House
