a snake in every termite mound?

 

His grandfather was probably talking about the tiny armored snakes that eat termite larvae. Even though they are likely venomous, they pose little danger to humans.

I get those in my old house before. They are blind, and the jaws are sideways, 

What would fit in that mouth.

They can open their mouths surprisingly wide. I caught one with a paper towel, and the tiny snake bit the paper towel, soaking it with venom about an inch in diameter. I'm not sure the mouth is sideways. This one opened its mouth and really grabbed the paper towel. The mouth looked fully operational to me. They eat termite larvae and ant larvae exclusively, so their food is soft and squishy. They are armored so the adult ants and termites can't kill them.

We get those here in the house, usually in the shower, if you step on them they are hard like a snake, my wife says they are poison though I have no idea what they are called to look them up, usually I see them in spurts...see three or four, dispose of them and dont see them for a couple of months...

Ramphotyphlops braminus. If it soaked a towel, and you could see the mouthy, yours is not my blind snake.

Why? Because you've never seen one do that? I've caught several of them in my house, and only one did what I described. I couldn't see the inside of its mouth, but I saw it bite the paper towel. It is the same snake.

One of my neighbors has a slingshot for shooting neighbors animals that come on the property, runs anyone he sees off the property, put up no trespassing signs, etc.

 

For some reason people keep stealing things from him. Never had anything stolen from me and we leave lots of things on the pourch every night. And they go out of there way helping us with things making life much easier. So thankful for them.

 

The way you treat people here gets returned seven fold.

Can he shoot the trespassers? That'd be the end of the problem.

Maybe you missed the point, he IS the problem!
