It isn’t uncommon for snakes to slither into your lawn and make themselves at home. Unfortunately for us, Florida has a climate which is ideal for snakes thanks to the warm, humid weather. Typically, snakes are not aggressive unless provoked which is good for you, but they will still defend themselves if they perceive you to be a threat. Snakes should be avoided when possible as telling the difference between a venomous and a non-venomous snake can be difficult.
How to Ward off Snakes
There is no perfect way to ensure that snakes will never come to your property, but there are some techniques you can use to discourage them from coming in the first place. The best thing to do if you are concerned about snakes is to clean your yard. Snakes are attracted to hiding spots and will gravitate to your lawn if there are rocks and bushes in which they can do so. Ridding your property of unnecessary debris can be helpful as it removes potential hiding spots for snakes as well as small rodents on which the snakes might prey. Cutting off their food supply will make them less likely to come to your land.
Tidying around your property is helpful at preventing snakes, but if you are searching for something more deliberate, you might want to consider:
- Snake fences which are flexible for any terrain and near impossible for snakes to get through
- snake traps are a highly effective and humane way to catch a snake while minimizing your contact with it
- If the issue is recurring, then snake repellant can keep them at bay
- Professional removal is the best solution to ensure that the job is done safely and properly.
