How to chase a snake away
If you notice a snake that you think might be venomous, call pest control immediately. But if you recognize it’s as a non-venomous snake and only wish it might be taken away, chasing it off is often as easy as reaching for the hose. Spray the snake until it slithers away, hopefully before you get the creeps.
DIY snake repellent
If snakes seem always to find their way into your yard, keep them away with ammonia. Snakes hate the smell and won’t come near it. Immerse rags in ammonia and put them in unsealed plastic bags. Leave the plastic bags where you always see the snakes, and that they won’t come again.
Keeping snakes far away from your pool
To keep snakes and even bugs like flies far away from your pool – pour white vinegar around the perimeter. Snakes can absorb liquids through their skin, and won’t slither over the vinegar. Meanwhile, it’s the same for teenagers and pets!
Another way to stay away from snakes
Believe it or not, snakes dislike humans even very much like we dislike them. It is easy to keep snakes out of your yard – let them know that humans live there! To try this, save the hair from your hairbrush and sprinkle it around your property’s perimeter. Snakes will smell the hair and avoid going anywhere near your house.
