Hi my name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.

Yes, snakes can get into almost any cavity. I've seen them curled and kinked up in a small tree cavity.

First question: Are you afraid of snakes?

Do you just want it to go away because you just don't like them, or have small children?

Have you seen the snake to know what color it is or it's markings?

If this snake were a rattlesnake or a copperhead or cottonmouth, it would be vital that you relocate it.

However a black snake, garden snake, rat snake, king snake, or any of the good snakes are actually beneficial to have around the house even though you may not be interested to know this. They eat all kinds of rodents, ticks, and other reptiles. The venomous snakes are to be respected and left alone, or relocated. The non-venomous snakes are 100% harmless and are actually beneficial. But you have to be able to identify which snake you have first.

Here's a site where you can pick your location from the top menu, and it will give you the names and photos of snakes from your area to help you identify which snake you have visiting you. Also over on the menu on the left side, there is a category called, "Discouraging Snakes," which could give you a few ideas to this issue:
