Snakes found inside SC high school, district calls pest control

WARE SHOALS, SC- Five snakes have been found at Ware Shoals High School over the past ten days according to the school district.

The superintendent of Ware Shoals School District 51 confirms – in an email to 7 News – that what appear to be non-poisonous rat snakes or king snakes were found. The superintendent says the snakes are small, between six and eight inches in length.

A local pest control company came to the campus and spread materials to control the problem. Two snakes were found in a classroom on Monday.

Superintendent Fay Sprouse says additional measures were taken by the school maintenance staff to seal up cracks and crevices.

Photos of the snakes were posted by a student on Facebook who didn’t want to be identified.
