The woman was doing her dishes at her home when she spotted the snake in her dish rack.
Allen Eckman, owner of A-1 Wildlife Control, said indoor snake sightings are likely to increase as the temperature drops.
"This year with the change in weather, we've had lots more calls," Eckman told WCNC-TV.
Snakes also aren't the only animals to make unexpected appearances in unusual places -- a London man discovered a young fox hiding out on the top rack of his dishwasher in June. UPI news added.
