Des Moines Iowa Snake Situation: Was getting ready to pressure clean back of two story house, thought there was something hanging down when UI hit it with the water a snake skin fell. I enclosed three pics to see if you can help me identify it. The snake was hanging from the soffit up by the attic. There is a piece missing and we recently had baby birds in there, There is a creek down over the hill from our house with some weeds growing on the hill but keep everything cut down. There are trees close to the house and figure that is how the snake got up there as this is a two story home. Should I be worried?

Attached are the pix of 2nd snake skin I've found in my garden within a couple of weeks. We live rurally, have dogs & chickens in a chicken tractor. I killed a corn snake last year that appeared to be here for the bumper toad crop. We have another bumper crop of toads again this year. We live in east Texas about a Hal mile from a lake copper heads and cotton mouths are a concern. One snake you can see is bad enough. Two skins with no sighting concerns me. The towel the skin is angled on is 12" by 14" for scale I'd appreciate any help you can be.
