Does Snake Repellent Work?snake removal trap to actively catch the snake.
If you have a snake problem and you wish to get rid of them, they should be physically trapped and removed from the habitat. Either that, or physical barriers, such as fences (that go at least a foot underground) should be put in place as a means of snake prevention, to keep them from entering ground level areas. The real best form of repellent is preventative methods, such as keeping your yard free of debris. You'll also want to seal any open holes leading into your house, so that no snakes can get inside.

Do snake deterrents work - Snake deterrents generally donít work. That means the products on the shelves in the store and the products on your shelves at home donít work. There are a few professional-grade substances that have moderate efficacy, such as ultra rare mongoose urine, which isn't effective most of the time anyway. The reason snake repellents donít work is because there is nothing intimidating to a snake about the smell of naphthalene or sulfur. Even if there were, snakes do not smell the way people traditionally assume they do. Snakes use smell as a method of information. They are not looking for pleasing or foul smells; they are looking for food, water, or landmarks. What this boils down to is that snakes need to be repelled by other means. Thankfully, those other means are well within your grasp as a homeowner. To keep snakes away from your home and property, you need to make the space as unappealing as possible. This means no long grass. You donít need to cut your lawn to the point of burned blades, but keep the grass short enough to prevent a snake from wanting to cross it. This has nothing to do with texture; snakes do not want to be seen by predators or prey. Short grass leaves the very exposed for a long distance.
Do sonic snake repellers work - Do not waste your money on sonic snake repellers. These items will tell you they emit a sound that humans cannot hear but snakes can. The reptiles supposedly canít tolerate the specific pitch and have to leave the immediate area. The truth of the matter is that snakes donít hear, at least not at frequencies louder than a human does. Instead of having traditional ears, snakes rely more on vibrations in the ground to tell them information. A sonic repeller would be a complete waste of time. In fact, do not buy any of the commercial repellents on the shelf at the store. Your time and effort is better spent patrolling the outside of your home and property. Snakes come to places where they can find food or shelter or both. There are things about your yard that are drawing them in, and you need to find out what those attractants are. Long grass is one of the most common reasons why snakes are on a property. And itís not just the long grass around your perimeter. Long yard grass will be a problem. It only takes a few missed mowing episodes for snakes to start moving in. Other vegetation, like thick or unmaintained gardens should also be remedied.
