I won’t miss yard work, especially if there are yard snakes involved. Yard snakes are harmless little garter snakes…well harmless if they don’t scare you half to death. Yard work shouldn’t have snake hazards. Of course today I was mulching around rocks so I’d expect to see a snake or two, but when you come across them while mowing it’ll really throw you. Can’t they feel a mower coming at them? There have been fewer yard snakes this year and the ones we do have are much smaller than two or three years ago. Guess that is why we have so many crickets and mosquitoes. Its a real love hate relationship I’ve got with these yard snakes.
