Big snake in the yard

While working on a client's yard, I saw a big black snake move across the lawn and into the hedge that I just finished cutting. This place is swamped with huge trees, so I wasn't sure if the snake came out of the sewer or a tree. I hate snakes and spiders. I'm thinking of letting this account go if the client refuses to get someone out there.

What would you do?

Snakes are beneficial. Leave them alone and they will leave you alone. My Rat Terrier keeps killing rat snakes in my back yard. The little sucker is going to need a new home of he keeps it up.

If it's a Bull/Black snake, then it's a rodent eater. Leave it alone and let it do it's job.

No shat!!

Dropping an account for a snake? Does the OP have any idea of how many snakes he doesn't see?

This sums it up quite well. I saw plenty of black snakes toward the end of the summer and didnt even worry about them. I did see a few copper heads though and because they are poisinous we let the customer know and they took care of it
