The Q&A Archives: how to get rid of snakes

Question: any thing in the store to help me get rid of snakes

Answer: Vernon,

There is not a good way to get rid of snakes with a product. There have been products containing Napthalene (such as Snake Away) that you can put in a line around the property to create a barrier but they don't work on all types of snakes. Reports are that they work best against rattlesnakes, pretty well against copperheads, not very well against coral snakes and not well at all against water moccasins. These products would also need to be reapplied periodically to maintain an effective barrier.

A low small mesh fence reaching to just below the ground is an option but not a very practical one.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
