Follow these steps to get rid of snakes!
- Eliminate habitat. Snakes require heat to digest their food. Dry, rocky locations are havens to most kinds of snakes. Be aware when walking near wood piles and large, flat areas of concrete.
- Remove hiding places. Snakes are shy creatures. When not hunting, snakes will hide in wood piles, among flower pots and under garden debris.
- Keep rodents under control. A hungry snake searching for food will follow its stomach. To control rodents keep pet food indoors, garbage cans tightly sealed and vegetable gardens harvested.
- Erect snake proof fencing around your garden. A low fence only 2 to 3 feet high and made of fine wire mesh will prevent snakes from entering.
