Sorry Snake, But You Can’t Stay Here

Getting rid of snakes in your Atlanta yard can be a nightmare, but there are some techniques that can really work. While some snake repellents are tried with crossed fingers sometimes they don’t always help. But there are some things you can do to achieve the goal of ridding snakes, or at least reducing them before contacting your Atlanta wildlife removal company.
Changing the environment of your yard is one of the easiest things to do to repel snakes. These changes are not extreme, but things like removing wood piles, removing garbage or debris piles, remove mulch piles and cleaning up any old junk that is still around. These are the areas that snakes like to hide and live in.
Doing proper maintenance on your Atlanta yard will also help keep snakes at bay. By keeping grass short and large patches of weeds pulled, you can reduce hiding places for snakes. Also, by keeping large bushes and shrubs away from the outside of your house, you can avoid unpleasant visitors.
Remember– if a snake can’t find food, he’ll be throwing a hobo bindle over his shoulder and moving on. For example, if you have lots of rodents, mice, and even certain types of insects, you are providing an environment that snakes love to live in. Getting rid of this vermin can also help reduce your snake population.
One last resort is to remove snakes by hand yourself, or by calling your local Atlanta wildlife removal service. Be sure to call the experts if you don’t know what kind of snake it is. There are quite a few poisonous snakes in the Southeast, like Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes, Coral snakes and Cottonmouths– and these guys are mean and dangerous for the layperson to be around. Learn to identify the difference between poisonous and non-poisonous types of snakes to know when to call in the big guns to keep your Atlanta yard vermin free.
