I have two suggestions:

1. Mexican milksnake -
These stay very small, like 2ft. The adults are super calm, and they can live on thawed pinks/fuzzies their entire lives. They are very attractive. If you look on the classifieds, they are available from time to time. Herp shows usually always have a few for $50 or so. Super easy keepers. You can get frozen pinks/fuzzies at Petco, etc or online.

2. African house snake
Interesting snakes. Males are little. Similar care as above.

The only insect-eating snake I was able to keep for a long time (like 5 years before I gave it away) was a shovelnose snake from the low desert areas of Calif. Mine ate small crickets and especially spiders. Shovelnose stay hidden most of the time, emerging at night. But you would have to catch one, as I've never seen them for sale.
