    ukk. [​IMG] Snakes will not leave if they can get a decent meal from somewhere, so you really have to work hard to get rid of them. Try closing up all holes with hardware cloth or screen. Put a golf ball/ fake egg in the nest, and s/he will eat it and die.

    Snakes can be quite difficult to get rid of. They can get through amazingly small openings.
