In rural areas, you’ll often find them in yards within the brush, under your home or deck, and sometimes in your swimming pool or even your house. These slithering creatures have a nack of fitting into tight spaces and gaining access to your property. If you have a rodent or insect problem, don’t let it get out of control or you’ll soon have snakes following, snakes prefer living near insect or rodent populations as it’s an easy source of food.
Odds are, most snakes you find in the wild won’t be venomous, however, even non-venomous snakes can be aggressive when threatened and still pose a threat. And to the average home or business owner, differentiating from a venomous or non-venomous snake from a distance is highly unlikely. Florida has also had an influx of non-native snakes being introduced to the wild such as Pythons and Boa Constrictors. Many of these snakes were originally brought to Florida as pets, but now live in the wild, and without an abundance of natural predators, their numbers are increasing.
