THIS NEXT STORY SOUNDS LIKE THE SCENE OF A HORROR MOVIE, A MINNESOTA MOTHER AND HER KIDS LIVE IN A HOUSE FULL OF SNAKES.

TODAY IT IS 6 MONTHS LATER, I AM ABOUT 95 SNAKES THAT I FOUND INSIDE MY HOUSE.

95, WE KNOW IT SOUNDS HARD TO BELIEVE.

BUT AS WCCO 'S LIZ COLLIN FOUND, IT IS THE FRIGHTENING REALTY FOR A FAMILY LEFT WITH FEW OPTIONS AFTER BUYING WHAT THEY ONCE CONSIDERED THE PERFECT HOME.

LOOKING FOR HOLES, CRACKS, CREVICES.

TYPICALLY YOU FIND THEM ALONG THE SIDING.

THIS IS A RUNWAY RIGHT HERE.

Reporter: LIKE CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATORS THEY TREAT THE PROPERTY LIKE A PUZZLE, PIECING TOGETHER.

THERE WE GO, THERE IS ONE.

Reporter:.

PROBABLY MOST HOME OWNER'S WORST NIGHTMARE.

I AM OKAY, YEP.

ONCE YOU FIND THE DEN IT IS EASY.

Reporter: PEST CONTROL PULLS 5 SNAKES FROM HIDING IN LESS THAN AN HOUR.

I THINK IT IS GREAT THEY ARE NOT IN MY HOUSE AND THEY ARE THERE, RIGHT? Reporter: TODAY'S FIND DOESN'T TRULY TELL THE HELL ANGIE WHITLEY HAS BEEN LIVING THROUGH.

I HATE THAT SHE IS GOING THROUGH THIS.

FOUND THE TWO TODAY.

Reporter: THE EVIDENCE LURKS IN HER BASEMENT, NOW TORN APART AND LITTERED WITH SNAKE TRAPS.

I WILL BE UPSTAIRS.

Reporter: AS A NURSEAL AND SINGLE MOM SHE SPENT YEARS RENTING A TOWN HOUSE TO SAVE ENOUGH FOR A DOWN PAYMENT FOR A NEW START.

IT WAS CLEAN, NEW CARPET, NEW PAINT.

Reporter: THE SPLIT LEVEL IN OAK PARK HEIGHTS SEEMED LIKE THE PERFECT NEIGHBORHOOD FOR HER TWO KIDS TO GROW UP IN.

EVERAL WALK THROUGHS AND INFECTION YIELDED NO TROUBLE.

BUT 45 MINUTES AFTER CLOSING ON OCTOBER 5, PLENTY OF IT SLITHERED IN.

BROUGHT MY FIRST SORT OF BOX IN DOWN STAIRS TO THE BEDROOM AND FOUND A SNAKE.

ONE QUICKLY TURNED TO three, four, 5.

TODAY, 6 MONTHS LATER I AM ABOUT 95 SNAKES THAT I FOUND INSIDE MY HOUSE.

Reporter: THAT IS 95 INSIDE.

YOU CAN SEE ONE THAT CAME OUT NOW.

Reporter: A FEW HUNDRED MORE OUTSIDE.

IN THE SNAKE WORLD, THIS IS UP THERE.

Reporter: ANGLY KNOWS A SNAKE DEN IS SOMEWHERE UNDER HER PROPERTY, WHICH SITS CLOSE TO A MARSH.

WATER CREATES A BIG VOID UNDERNEATH THE FOUNDATION WHERE THE CORNER OF HER HOUSE IS.

THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR A REPTILE ATTRACTED TO HEAT AND TO EACH OTHER.

IN THEIR BALL.

Reporter: SHE SPENT MORE THAN $13,000 TRYING TO RID HER FAMILY OF THE PROBLEM.

RIPPING UP HER FINISHED BASEMENT TO SEAL OFF PROTELGS CRACKS.

YOU CAN FIT A PENCIL THROUGH, THEY COULD FIT THROUGH.

Reporter: AND PUMPING OUT 40 GALLONS OF WATER FROM A HOLE IN THE FOUNDATION.

WE THOUGHT THAT WAS THE PROBLEM.

Reporter: STILL THE SPRING BROUGHT THE SNAKES BACK.

HERE IS AN OPENING.

Reporter: ADAM'S PEST CONTROL DONATED THEIR SERVICES TO TRY TO LOCATE THE SNAKE DEN.

LOT OF SLEEPLESS NIGHTS.

Reporter: WHITLEY SLEEPS UPSTAIRS ON THE COUCH AND STAYS OUT OF THE BASEMENT.

BUMP IN THE ROAD BUT I AM NOT QUITE SURE HOW TO SOLVE IT YET.

Reporter: DESPERATE FOR RELIEF AND THE SICKENING PUZZLE TO BE SOLVED ONCE AND FOR ALL.

WE ARE GOING TO GET IT.

IT WILL BE DONE.

Reporter: LIZ COLLIN, WCCO four NEWS.

MOST SNAKES ONLY NEED HALF INCH WIDE CRACK TO GET IN YOUR HOME, YOU HEARD THEM TALKING PENCIL OPENING, IF THE CRACKERIZE NOT EASY TO FIND, ENERGY AUDIT MIGHT HELP YOU CHECK FOR AIR LEAKS.

IT IS BEST TO FILL THE CRACKS.
