Many years ago, I saw a snake trap made out of a length of bamboo (it was based on a design from some country in SE Asia). Anyway, the trap was open on one end, and the other end had holes drilled in it to accommodate bamboo slivers to make a small cage. The cage contained the bait - either a mouse or small bird, and sharpened and hardened bamboo slivers were driven in at an angle (maybe 30 degrees) approximately a foot after the open end. The snake would enter the open end of the trap to go after the bait, but couldn't back up because of the sharpened bamboo slivers. Very simple but effective trap. No reason why you couldn't do the same thing with PVC pipe and some deck screws.

Good luck
