Snakes are quite common, so you are more than likely to encounter them on your property. For the most part, snakes prefer to be left alone and are perfectly happy to rest on a rock and bask in the warmth of the sun to counteract their cold blood. While snakes may be frightening to you, it is always important to keep in mind that they are usually more afraid of you than you are of them. However, just because snakes seem to avoid us doesnâ€™t mean that they are safe to approach. When you find a snake in the wild, it is difficult to tell whether or not they are venomous, so it is best to refrain from contact altogether.
Keeping the Snakes Away
If you are seeking do-it-yourself options for snake control, surprisingly, a little bit of yard work can do wonders. Snakes love small places where they can sneak in and hide. They will often search for rocks and fallen branches as well as shrubbery, so by clearing away these items from your yard; you make it much less appealing to snakes. Removing tall grasses as well will also give snakes less of a reason to come to your yard.
