Green also said this time of the year is when snake eggs are hatching so there are a lot of the critters around. Often they come from small wooded areas into the yards---even those in the city.
The good news, Green said, is 90 percent of the snakes he removes are non venomous. However, he warns some are poisonous and potentially deadly.
He said snakes usually hide in dark, cluttered areas. He suggests keeping lawns mowed, bushes trimmed, and don’t pile wood in the yard. “My best advice would be if you see a snake just leave it alone—get out of its way and let it move on its way.”
