Certainly mulches can be a place for pests or critters to hide or even make themselves at home, but it does not necessarily attract them.

If you have issue with snakes, perhaps straw mulch would not be a good choice.

In my own garden I do prefer to use Cedar mulch; I like the fragrance and it does help in deterring pests.
Here are some links with more information.
