The snakes that find their way into our pool are always small (so they can fit in the cracks where the siding meets the birdcage) and black. I think they are just water snakes, but not certain. To get rid of them I prop open the birdcage door, catch the snake in the skimmer on a long pole that is used to clean stuff floating in the pool, go out the door and toss the snake over the fence between our property and the preserve. I never actually touch them. Sometimes we see a hawk swoop down into the preserve and come up with a black snake, so I doubt they are venomous as I imagine the hawk would know better?

Doubt the hawk cares (;-), but I get creeped out by them too.

I brought up the snake subject while in the pool one night and Mrs. Nucky didn't hear the first part about hypothetically if there was a snake in the pool, She levitated outta the pool. Its funny now but I remember that was a rough night! Whew! She was not happy with yours truly, I guess get in line was the wrong answer to her.

I was deathly afraid before I moved here. GE was kidding me all the time about sending me a Bag 'O Snakes. It's really almost a non-issue, just have to be aware is all.
