We have an enclosed lanai along with an open patio with a fire pit.
It does get really hot in the sun out in the open – but mornings are shaded and so are early evenings.
Needless to say – we are not happy with this – I spread snake-be-gone around and mow the grass short.
But – it is a protected area in the woods – and since I put down the snake-be-gone –
we have not seen anymore – but I warn the grandkids to watch what they are doing!
This one I later found out was not poisonous and as soon as I took the picture-
it turned around and very fast went back into the woods.
We have also seen them down by the pond!
At night – deer will set off our motion light in the backyard as I will look out and see them.
We are only four miles from the beach – but it is real country.
One of the reasons we picked this area.
