You need a permit ( somewhat easy to get ) to keep native unprotected venomous in Florida. Technically you also need a permit to collect and relocate them too :) Call up the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission to get all the details, they won't bust your ass for anything. I would highly suggest just calling them and having them relcoate the snake for you..
"No person or firm shall keep, possess, or exhibit a poisonous or venomous reptile without a permit. The permit is to be issued only when assured that all provisions of 372.86 through 372.91 and other Commission regulations will be fully complied with in all respects and is subject to revocation for violation of a Commission regulation relating to the keeping, possessing and exhibiting of reptiles. No person shall exhibit to the public, with or without charge, a poisonous or venomous reptile without posting a bond in the penal sum of $1,000 conditioned that the exhibitor will indemnify and save harmless all persons from injury or damage from reptiles and shall comply with all Commission regulations. All persons licensed to keep/exhibit poisonous reptiles shall provide safe, secure housing in a manner approved by the Commission. Poisonous reptiles may be transported only in cloth sacks in ventilated boxes with "danger" label as specified. No person except the licensee or the licensee's authorized employee shall open a pit, cage or other container which contains poisonous or venomous reptiles. The Commission may prescribe other rules necessary to prevent the escape of poisonous and venomous reptiles (372.86 through .92). Reptiles are subject to inspection by Commission officers to determine if they are securely housed, and deficiencies must be remedied within 30 days or the license is subject to revocation (372.901). All persons sponsoring and conducting an organized poisonous reptile hunt for whatever purpose shall comply with the above provisions, and hunts must be registered with the Department of State and with the Commission (372.912).
