Due to Florida’s warm climate and swampy habitats, both venomous and non-venomous snakes are commonplace within the state. However, venomous or not, these slithery creatures are not something you want to see around your property or inside your home. If you see any snakes in or around your Polk County home, reach out to the snake removal professionals at Critter Control® of Polk County. Our licensed and trained technicians are equipped, experienced, and ready to safely and permanently rid your Lake Wales property of nuisance snakes.

How To Deter Snakes from Your Home

One of the most preventative measures to take in keeping snakes from settling down in your yard is securing and cleaning it. Snakes find comfort in yards with debris and large scraps of random objects and branches that they can use for shelter. Snakes often use scraps or loose branches as hiding spots in-between hunting for prey and raising their young.

The following tips can help keep your property maintained and free of snakes.

  1. Keep all of your foliage trimmed.
  2. Surround your entire property with a deep fence.
  3. Check around your home for any damages or crevices snakes can enter through.
  4. Close off any small openings that may serve as entry points.
  5. Clean up any random debris scraps, toys, and lawn equipment that snakes can hide under.

DIY Snake Removal Methods

There are a couple of do-it-yourself methods to get rid of snakes, but they do not ensure that the snakes will be gone long-term. DIY snake removal methods include:

  • Snake traps – Designed to lure and encage, snake traps will only work for snakes already inside your home. The use of these traps outdoors may not be as effective because other creatures may get caught instead.
  • Snake repellant – Most snake repellents found in stores are not as effective as using natural repellants such as mongoose urine or kingsnake musk. The use of store-bought repellants can even make the snake issue more extreme.

If the preventative measures listed above do not keep snakes from entering your property, then your best bet is contacting a professional snake removal service.
