Snakes are a commonplace yard guest in Florida, and many Floridians have seen snakes in their yard slithering around looking for food or a safe place to nest and breed. For the most part, snakes won’t bother you unless you bother them, but they might attack you if you get too close. If you notice the presence of nuisance snakes on your Davenport property or inside your home, do not attempt to remove them on your own. Instead, rely on the professional snake removal specialists at Critter Control® of Polk County.

5 Tips to Deter Snakes in Davenport

The best thing you can do to keep snakes out of your yard is to clean it up and remove all debris like branches, leaves, and other foliage. These are places where snakes like to hide. Here are some tips for cleaning up your yard and keeping snakes off of your property:

  1. Trim down any overgrown bushes or shrubs.
  2. Clear your yard of children’s toys, rocks, and branches.
  3. Fence off your entire yard.
  4. Figure out where the snake entry points are and close them off.
  5. Make sure there are no cracks or holes in any of your outside doors — this is an easy way for snakes to get access to the inside of your home.

Other Snake Removal Methods

While they are not always successful, there are a couple of tools and methods you could use to deter or remove snakes from your property.

  1. Snake Traps: Generally speaking, snake traps are not very useful if you’re using them outside because snakes will probably not be enticed by a small trap in a wide-open space. Additionally, using a snake trap outside might inadvertently capture a different critter which might not be the ideal outcome. If you are sure there is a snake inside your home or workplace, a snake trap might work; however, a single trap will do nothing to eliminate additional snakes or prevent others from entering your home.
  2. Snake Repellant: Store-bought snake repellants are not very effective in keeping snakes away. Natural repellants such as mongoose urine or kingsnake musk will be more effective, although most don’t have or want such pungent items around the house.
