South Carolina has a variety of snakes that can be found whether near wetlands, out in the country or even in the city. Most snakes generally are not active during the night, however there are a few species whose prey are nocturnal, and therefore if the weather is right, will bring them out at night to hunt their prey. For nocturnal snakes, clouds at night offers cover while hunting and insulates the ground making it warmer for them to traverse. Even during daylight hours, the weather can be a factor to a snakes activity. Snakes are generally not too active with cooler temperatures, however high humidity levels do not seem to bother them.

Typically we find that snakes are entering homes through tiny openings and loose cracks. We highly advise staying clear of any snakes found in and around your home and to refrain from touching, poking at or attempting to handle them.
