I know some snakes eat mice and rats, but also know that in areas other than where I live they can be dangerous to humans and pets. Guinna hens will eat mice rats and snakes even poisonous snakes and lizards. the draw back is they fly and are noisy so keeping them contained requires clipping the wings on a regular basis. I welcome gardener snakes where I live because they are not poison and eat slugs,bugs and small rodents. If you garden and live where there are poisonous snakes just use caution and don't kill them give them a chance to move on because they are there to eat those rodents that have been attracted to your garden.
