SNAKE PREVENTION SAFETY TIPS

SNAKE PREVENTION SAFETY TIPS

It won’t be long until more and more homeowners are reporting finding snakes in their yards.  Here are some tips to discourage snakes from taking up residence in your landscape by making the area immediately around your home less attractive to snakes for living, lounging or snacking.  

Clear away piles of debris and leaves from your immediate gardening area.  Clutter is essentially an open invitation to snakes because it provides a warm, dark place for them to hide. Piles of leaves, compost piles, straw mulch, wood chip mulch, stacks of firewood, and piles of cut grass are all comfortable places that snakes like to hide in, so these should be removed from your yard.

 

Certain shrubs and other plants provide the perfect hiding spot for a neighborhood snake. Keeping your grass mowed is a good way to prevent snakes from slithering around your yard. Shrubs and packed gardens with thick plants will also attract snakes. If you are very concerned about a potential snake problem, remove or thin these plants out. If you want to keep these plants, however, consider transplanting them to the far side of your yard, away from the foundation of your house.

 

If you have a rodent or large insect problem, you will want to address this at the same time.  Remember, that rodents and large insects are a favorite menu item for snakes.

 

Finally, make sure there are no holes in the exterior walls of your house.
