I've found that holding them under in a tub full of cold water quite effective & water will never hurt them in any way. If the cold water don't make em let go they eventually have to let go to breathe. I myself would never use alcohol, lemon juice, vinegar etc. for my snakes sake, just because. If I had a large Boid attached to me though I would consider a shot of Isopropyl Alcohol though as this is a more serious affair, but as far as the Colubrids go the under water thing works great, as most will release right away, with the exception of the odd stubborn Kingsnake LOL Mark
