There is nothing like seeing a snake in your house, pool or yard to add some excitement to your day. While it can be a very frightening experience to come face to face with a snake, they often provide a service of reducing rodent populations around the home. All snakes are predators and depending on the species, they eat rats, bird eggs, frogs, and even other snakes!
Snakes should not be aimlessly killed. Rather, they can often be relocated to a new habitat. Also, yards can be modified to to make it less desirable to hold snakes. Excess debris needs to be removed from yards, and lawns and bushes trimmed. Homes can be reinforced to prevent snake entry into attic spaces.
Snakes are reptiles, and are cold blooded. That said, snakes are most active when it is warm outside. During time of day when it is cooler, you may find snakes in a sunny/warm spot such as on a road or sidewalk soaking up the heat.
Some snakes are venomous and care must be taken if you encounter one. A bite from one of these snakes may cause an immediate reaction such as swelling, tingling sensation, or nausea. If you see two fang marks, then you were bitten by a pit viper such as a copperhead, cottonmouth or rattlesnake.
