1) they are federally protected
2) they are absolutely harmless
3) contact your local fish and game agency and they will handle it

Highly protected animals and illegal to sell from the wild, or harm. As stated above, contact your local Fish and Game agency for assistance.

Thank you. Will call them. I know they are harmless, but they have gotten so big that I am scared.

They do eat venomous snakes, so having them around is a huge plus if those types of snakes are a concern! Without the indigo snakes there, the rodents and prey animals that are attracting them in the first place will attract more snakes which could very likely be venomous. So you are quite lucky to have the indigo's around

They will not bother you. I've worked with drymarchon for years. They are of the most intelligent reptiles in the world. They will not hurt you

Do you think over time, they will come to understand that we don't want to harm them and not be so fast to move when we come up near them. They are fast suckers, if I come around the corner and scare them which of course I scream because of their reaction. From what I'm hearing, I am lucky to have them around. We had a mole problem in the spring and some were coming in the house. I thought the peppermint I put around the baseboards is what stopped that. Maybe I was wrong and I don't want those back in those house running around.

Take a picture if you see them. They're most likely black racers.

Since this thread is really not appropriate in the FOR SALE section, I am moving it to the appropriate discussion forum and changing the thread title accordingly.
