I'm not an expert on snakes, but I have and will handle them if the opportunity arises.
Why kill them? Snakes keep rodents and vermin in check. Ignorance is a terrible excuse to mindlessly endorse the killing of a creature. I'm not calling you ignorant, just saying a general ignorance of a species statement.
There aren't that many species of venomous snakes in North America. Many more species of non-venomous snakes.
I love snakes. I see them every time I mow the yard. I stop so they can get away and stay in our yard so they can deal with the mice, scorpions, etc. so I don't have to.
