Not really. Most snakes eat vertebrates, a few eat insects and spiders, and all are carnivorous as far as I know. The insect eaters are aongst the hardest to keep.
Garters, available at most pet shops, will eat feeder guppies or goldfish, and are easy to keep except that they require a "Vita-Lite (TM) since they are a basking snake, and get most of their vitamin D by getting sun light in the skin. I would try that.
