We've got a cute little visitor that lives under the stairs of the front entrance of our house....he's a gardner (sp?) snake and he loves to take siestas under the bush beside the stairs and frequently sunbathes on the steps when nobody is around. Today as I was coming in my front entrance there he was sprawled out....I almost dropped my packages on my feet!
How do I get rid of this creature without hurting it? I would keep it around as a pet except that I'm petrified of snakes!!
