One thing you can try is to cool your house down, and put a heat lamp or something similar in the center of a room close to the floor so the snakes can get under it for heat. Try this at nite so the rest of the house is dark and the light and heat from it may attract the snakes. Check on it periodically thruout the nite and you may want to put flour around the light to track them. It's not a bad idea to put a food item by the light either. I had a young kingsnake escape earlier this year and luckily I found him poking his head out from under the fridge. If the light trick doesn't work, you may want to look for areas like the fridge where there are warm spots from appliances. Good luck and let us know if you find them!
