Ugh! Glad you got that rattler before it got you! And thanks for the fencing tips. I'll get on it this weekend (weather's been getting warmer, so I'm guessing those suckers will start moving around soon.)
Me too...I never heard one rattle before but knew what it was right away and I will never forget it!
If you decide to use the hardware cloth let me know and I will take a picture of how I secured mine. You have to seal the bottom of really good or they will crawl underneath it, happened to one of our neighbors.
