They are bad to hang out around downed trees. They just wait for something to come along and take a strike at it. I've come across several that when relic hunting.

Between Jax, FL and where we are now in Barnwell, SC I've killed a few snakes in my day with a shovel or the lawn-mower.

Yesterday I had to kill one that startled me a bit. Black, MUCH thicker than I'm used to seeing, and mean (reared back his/her head and hissed at me).

My older boy and I were leaving to pick up the youngest from pre-school. My son walked down our back steps AND RIGHT BY IT before I saw it! He has autism, I'd probably never be able to get him to leave the house again if he had gotten bit.

Anyway, since it was a littler bit bigger than I'm used to seeing, and I don't know anything about snakes re: how dangerous they are, I used a little caution in killing this one. Spooked him into one corner by the stairs on the back porch, went around to the other side of the stairs to get up on the porch out of his line of sight, and brought down the pain from above.

If the snake in question won't go away easily or decides to take up residence near my residence it goes... We had a black snake that liked the front stairs last year, perfectly harmless but 3 times dumping him way away from house wasn't enough. Scared the wife to death so it had to go.

Ours hide in last years red oak leaves so they tend to be a little rustier in color than those light tan ones you have.

This one was in a tree. Probably to keep from drowning yesterday.

I had a King snake set up residence in my garage for a minute. I figured he found his way in, and he would find his way out. Never bothered anything.
