Professional Snake Removal
Cleaning up your yard works well as a deterrent, but it isn’t a permanent solution. If habitat modification isn’t resolving your critter problem, consider:
- Snake Repellant – If you have noticed snakes in your yard, or even just finding their shed skin, repellant can be a great option to discourage them from coming close to your property.
- Snake Fences – A highly efficient way to prevent snakes from getting on your land is by installing a snake fence. They provide a simple barrier that cannot be passed or climbed by snakes. Snake fences are easy to put up and flexible, so any terrain can accommodate one.
- Traps – Snake traps are safe and effective ways to remove snakes from your yard. Humane versions lure in the snake and trap it with a light adhesive which can be dissolved later for relocation.
