How to Keep Snakes Away from Your House
Some people are scared of snakes. For some, it's a phobia. Some just respect them enough to stay out of their way.
Snakes do take care of pests in your yard. But if you need to take action and get rid of snakes from your yard, here's some steps to take.
Option 1 - You can purchase and apply a snake repellent powder, sprinkle, spray, or noise device. But although these are sold, they are completely ineffective, and a waste of time and money.
Option 2 - You can purchase a snake trap. These work, but they won't always catch the snake.
Option 3 - You can hire a professional in your area. Look on the internet for a company, or your local yellow pages, or you can find someone in your town from my directory that I list on this website. This method is the most reliable, but the priciest.
Option 4 - You can make your property less attractive to snakes, by clearing out debris, keeping bushes and plants trimmed back, filling in any gaps under concrete or rocks (snakes LOVE these areas), sealing any holes in your house or gaps under your doors, which snakes can enter the house via, or in extreme measures, you can install a fence around the perimeter of your property - a solid fence, not a chain link fence of course.
