Top 4 Strategies for Snake Removal and Control
Another alternative to chemical-based repellent solutions is to use a snake trap. These traps can be purchased online or in local hardware stores. It is advised to contact an animal control company to facilitate the trapping and relocating of wild snakes. It is important to never harm or injury a wild animal. Snakes are beneficial in many arenas; and should be respected and preserved in nature. Although we don’t want them on our property, there is no need to kill or harm any wild animal near your home or office.
Store-Bought Snake Repellents
For those of you looking for a quick solution to snake infestations, try purchasing a general snake repellent at a local general store or home goods store. You can also find these repellents online for purchase. Although this is not an organic approach to solving a snake problem, many retail snake repellent brands are typically safe to use. They come in powder form or a concentrate that must be diluted with water. These repellents are administered the same way as the homemade option; simply mix, dilute, and spray the desired perimeter.
All-Natural Snake Repellent
For those of you who choose to not use chemical-based sprays and repellents, there are several organic or holistic approaches to consider in order to get rid of snakes. Instead of using store bought snake repellent solutions, you can use a variety of household items that snakes will thwart snakes from entering your property. For example, clove oil, cinnamon, cedar oil, and anything sulfuric-smelling can prevent snakes from trespassing into a yard. Simply mix with a small amount of water in a spray bottle and administer to the perimeter of your property.
