PUNTA GORDA, FL- A Florida couple is dealing with an infestation of snakes, at their home!
Nearly fifty of them have invaded the home they share with their infant son.
For the last three months, Alissia Scott and her fiancée Raymond Hisler have shared their home with some unwanted intruders, 48 of them.
And these snakes are making them crazy and scared.
Their son bentley isn't happy, either, as you can imagine.
"Our two-year-old is terrified of them, and we've only found one or two in his bedroom so far thank god," said Hisler.
The snakes may be small, but they're vicious.
The couple is renting the home from Barnes and Phillips Real Estate.
The company has sent pest control out three times.
The first time, they only checked outside.
"They're not outside, they're inside. They told us that there was no way they could get in and the pest control guy left. He literally didn't look around inside," said Alissia.
Finally, on their third visit, the exterminators laid traps inside the home.
Now they say the realtors have some strange advice.
"They're telling us that we just need to let the snakes run their course. It's just not acceptable. we can't do that, we can't live like that,” Alissia noted.
The owner of Barnes and Philips gave a statement saying they're doing everything they can about the snakes and don't have anything else to say.
But Alissa and Raymond are feeling the squeeze of these constricting critters.
"It's devastating because we, I mean like we said... we come home and the first thing we do is snake checks” said Alissia.
