Snakes are one of the most feared animals on the planet. They also rank as one of the top three things people fear most on planet earth. In the United States, we have many species of snakes. Though most of them are non venomous, in general people don’t like seeing snakes in their yard or home. Snake removal is a service we take very seriously, since they cause such fear.

Why Snakes Come To Your Yard
Common insects that snakes like to eat include roaches (American, Oriental, Palmetto, Water Bugs, Wood, etc.), ants, caterpillars, beetles, boxelder bugs, crickets, cicada’s, grasshoppers, slugs, centipedes and most any insect that’s dead.
Common animals that attract snakes include chipmunks, gophers, ground squirrels, lizards, mice, moles, prairie dogs, rats, shrews, voles and birds.
If you have a high population of these listed insects or animals, don’t be surprised if you start seeing snakes in the yard. And if you let any of these insects or animals move inside your home, the snakes will readily follow.
Snakes In The Yard
Second to food, snakes need a good place to live. They love to live under anything flat that lies on the ground. For example. objects such as boxes, weed cover sheeting, pine chips, pine straw, rocks, rock fill, gravel, any corrugated pipe or culvert, landscape rail road ties, patio slabs and wood piles could attract snakes. Many water dwelling species of snake are attracted to ponds and small creeks. With people making koi ponds and creating their own creeks and streams of water, snakes are sure to follow.
All things considered, to help minimize snake invasions, minimize the above conditions.
To keep snakes out of your yard and home, firstly reduce the amount of prime snake habitat. They love flat rocks, wood piles, boxes, slabs, slate walk ways, railroad ties, pine straw, ponds, creeks, water ditches, in the ground window wells, crawl spaces, basements, sheds, garages and other protective areas. Now obviously we need sheds, houses and garages but if you keep the prime snake habitat in the yard minimized, you’ll greatly the reduce the amount of snakes foraging close to the home. This will reduce the amount of snakes that come inside and in the end, will really help at repelling snakes.
Most snakes prefer to stay clear of people. But like any animal, they are driven by the need for food and shelter. And since most any house can provide a wonderful summer or winter home for snakes, it’s amazing we don’t encounter them more often in our living spaces.
Snakes usually feed on insects or small animals. With this in mind, the mere act of reducing insects and rodents on your property will directly result in seeing less snakes. In most every case of snake activity we encounter, there is a distinct insect or animal issue which led to the snakes coming around. In conclusion, if you don’t want snakes, take care of any insect or small animal problem around your home.
