How to Keep Snakes Out of Your Yard – Quick and Dirty Tips


Written by Admin, Published on October 6th, 2019

If you live in an area where snakes are common, chances are high that at some point, you may have walked out into your yard to find an unwelcome guest! Many people are afraid of snakes, and it can be hard to think clearly when these pests appear on your doorstep. So this week, we're here to share four handy tips to keep snakes away from your home so that you and your kids can rest easy.

If you spot a snake, make sure to call animal control immediately in case its poisonous. But if you know its just a garden (non-poisonous) snake and you wish it would go away, it can be as easy as reaching for the hose. Spray the snake until he slithers away, hopefully before you get the creeps.

If snakes seem to always find their way into your yard, keep them away with ammonia. Snakes hate the smell and wont come near it. Soak rags in ammonia and place them in unsealed plastic bags. Leave the plastic bags where you usually see the snakes, and they wont come back again.

To keep snakes and even bugs like flies away from your pool, pour white vinegar around the perimeter. Snakes can absorb liquids through their skin, and wont slither over the vinegar. Meanwhile, its same for kids and pets!

Believe it or not, snakes dislike humans just as much as we dislike them. To keep snakes out of your yard, it can be as easy as letting them know humans live there! To do this, save the hair from your hairbrush, and sprinkle it around the perimeter of your property. Snakes will smell the hair and keep away.
