How can I prevent Snakes from coming in to my home?
Snakes thrive in areas where they can hunt with stealth. If there is tall grass around your home, wood piles or other debris that enables them to hide, snakes may make it their prime hunting territory. Clearing the surrounding landscape may prevent snakes from staying around your home for too long. It’s also a good idea to seal any holes that may allow entry into the inside of your home or other buildings on your property.
