Few things are scarier than the sight of snakes. In fact, one recent survey revealed that more than 60 percent of people are more scared of snakes than anything else in life. If you dislike snakes and want to reduce the chances of ever coming into contact with one, you should make every effort to keep them away from your property. Check out some of the best ways to do so.
Avoid clutter building up in your yard.
Snakes might be scary to most people, but the truth is that snakes themselves are always on the lookout for potential predators. They also need to find warm places to stay when it starts to get cold outside. It’s why they tend to gravitate towards wood piles, compost piles, and other areas of yards that are cluttered. If possible, try to remove these things from your yard so that you don’t provide snakes with an open invitation to it.
Keep your grass cut at all times.
Do you let your grass grow for weeks at a time without cutting it? This is yet another way that you could be inadvertently inviting snakes to visit your yard. Snakes love the fact that tall grass will provide them with cover as they move from one place to another, so they’ll often move in the direction of areas that have grass that’s on the higher side. Cut your grass on a regular basis to prevent your lawn from becoming a home to snakes.
Prevent easy access into your home for snakes.
No matter how hard you try to keep snakes off your property, there is a chance one or two of them will sneak onto it. Nevertheless, this won’t be the end of the world, as long as you’re able to stop snakes from finding a way to sneak into your home. That means sealing up any holes and cracks in your exterior walls and making sure your basement windows remain closed at all times. It’ll make it almost impossible for snakes to slither right into your house.
