There’s a snake in my yard! What should I do? - KTAR News

How should someone handle a snake in their backyard?

To begin with, you don’t really want to “handle” snakes. More likely, you want to keep them out of your yard as much as possible so you don’t run into them. The season when you are most likely to see them runs from about April until Thanksgiving.

And as for “good” versus “bad,” all snakes play a beneficial role in maintaining the balance of nature in the desert. They control the populations of rabbits and desert rats, for example.
