Although they are not venomous, the people I know don’t like to go swimming with snakes … Northern Water Snakes in this case (I think – see screen grab below).
After being away for a week, once again the local wildlife has decided to make our pool their home – it has been dry. I tried the “Snake Shield” repelling granules in the spring and will reapply again to see if I can keep them out of the pool house and pool. Thankfully this little guy was just feisty and is not poisonous, but he wasn’t easy to fish out of the pool as they are good swimmers. BTW, when bigger, they do like to bite.
