We just bought a rv lot in Woodrun Lakes in Middleton, TN (Hardeman co.). I am deathly afraid of snakes, but my husband grew up in WI and has always gone camping. So he decided we should do this with our kids. So we bought this lot that has lot of beautiful dogwoods, and maples on it. Also not far from the fishing dam/lake. Sadly this place has not been touched in over 6 years. So there are tons of leaves and branches we are having to clean. While raking some of the leaves last weekend, I found three small holes in the ground and also what appeared to be small tiny eggs of some sort. While raking over this area and moving these eggs like things into a pile, I looked down and saw this tiny SNAKE. I about had a heart attack. Good thing it was a baby. I don;t know if those things were snake eggs or what. This snake was greyish in color and had a silver/ white underbelly. My husband had been using a weed wacker so he chopped it with that. That may make some people mad, killing a snake, but I don;t plan on getting close enough to see if it looks poisonous or not. Also we have three very adventuresome kids, ages 6 and 4 yr old twins. Now I am extremely afraid of going back there, not to mention trying to finish clearing the land up. ANy ideas what kind fo snake this could have been? Were those snake eggs I saw? How do I get rid or at least place a border up around where I do not want snakes to travel into (ie kids play area and camper) ?

Also looking for someone who is not afraid of snakes who would be willing to be paid a price for going and raking all these leaves up for us and clearing this space.

I can only assume you like rats and mice. Since you insist on killing the snakes on your property you will shortly be overrun by field mice and rats. Welcome to Hardeman County!
