I live in a master planned development and I have lived her 5 years and I saw one snake in my back yard. I have seen one snake at a county park. I have seen snake skins around homes while I was showing property. I don't like them either! When I lived in Key West I had baby snakes in my house once. EEK!

Since living here in Mount Pleasant I have seen turkey and deer too!

Seriously, there is not a "snake problem" here...palmetto bugs maybe, but not snakes.
