I only kill if they're venomous. Copperheads are dangerous, and they happen to be really common here unfortunately. We have king snakes, black racers, brown snakes, garter snakes, and a few others I can't think of right now (been a long day) those are all non-venomous, then for venomous we have copperheads, cotton mouths, and water moccasins and I think up in the mountains there are rattlers, but we're about 4-5hrs from there. I have had to work hard to be able to identify copperheads because I do a lot of yardwork, and silly me, I use to like to try to catch "cute" baby snakes. Um, not anymore. I went to grab a baby snake one day and my son's father goes DON'T grab that, it's a copperhead. Yea, so I just generally leave snakes alone, unless it's a threat to my family or my animals.
