Trish Wilcher posted photos of the serpent roommates to Facebook this weekend, writing, “Look at all the baby snakes in my bedroom … I am freaked out,” WSB reported.

In all, there were 17 baby snakes and one Wilcher called the “momma.”

A trapper paid a visit to the home and removed the snake family Monday, WSB reported.

Wilcher thinks that recently-cleared land near her home forced the snake family’s relocation into her bedroom.

To prevent snakes from making your home theirs, Smanatha Kennett, a wildlife technician, told WSB that you should remove brush or log piles that could attract mice or other small animals that snakes eat from your yard.
