You have some holes, and have probably seen some snakes, but you don't have any "snake holes;" no snake around here digs holes. If you have holes, you have chipmunks, voles, moles, yellowjackets, or something else.

As for getting rid of snakes: forget it. You're in Alabama. We have snakes. And more rural areas like the lake have even more snakes. Snakes want food and shelter, and if you have an abundance of snakes, it's because you have an abundance of food and/or shelter. And around here, there isn't much you can do about either one. You can keep the snakes away from your house if you elimnate their preferred foods (usually rodents) and get rid of log piles, brush piles, leaves, lumber, etc. that they can hide under, and keep any bushes next to the house trimmed, and the ground under the bushes raked. But that won't drive them away, it just moves them further from your house.

Someone always mentions moth balls, lime, or a commercial repellent, and the bottom line, unrefuted by anyone who knows about snakes, is this: none of that works at all. There is ZERO scientific proof or evidence otherwise. Save your money.

The vast majority of the snakes you'll see around here are harmless, and many are beneficial rodent-eaters. Yes, we DO have Cottonmouths, Copperheads, Timber Rattlesakes and Pygmy Rattlesnakes, but we have far more Midland Water Snakes, Plain-Bellied Water Snakes, Gray Rat Snakes, Corn Snakes, Garter Snakes, Hognose Snakes, and many, many others.

For those who do the Facebook thing, here is an excellent group that does a great job identifying snakes, and answering general question like the one that started this thread: https://www.facebook.com/groups/22137638452/?fref=nf
