:What do I do? How many do you think would be in a nest? Any help is appreciated.
They don't "nest" per se, but they may congregate in areas they find favorable (just like you'd expect to find a lot of folks at the pool on a hot day). There are products marketed as "snake repellent," but I haven't heard any success stories from people using them.
To get rid of them, have someone properly equipped to transplant them to somewhere they're less likely to confront humans. KEEPING future intruders away is the tough part. As long as you have favorable "hiding places" for them in your yard (low decks, holes in your foundation, etc) the possibility of more visits exists. Try to fill in such areas before it gets cold, or you may entomb snakes who've chosen your house for their winter slumber!
