Brumation prep

So I live in Alabama where we don't get the cold weather memo... How do you help your corns cold enough during Brumation?? Last year I think they got too warm at some point and it ruined breeding season...

I live in south Florida where it's almost subtropical. Here, during the winter we get highs in the 70s and sometimes 60s and sometimes low 80s and at night typically 50s sometimes upper 40s.
I keep my snakes n the garage and never use any artificial cooling. I had no problems with reproduction. I think they just need to experience a change of some type. It doesn't have to be drastic. After all corn snakes are native to this area.

I live in an apartment with no garage so I really have to artificially create a change.

Many breeders do not brumate at all, and snakes breed just fine. If you want to change something, change the light patterns. Maybe find your coolest closet and keep the door closed most of the time.

Good luck!
