It is important to know what to do if you have a snake bite. You have several options. Some of them are better than others. However, in many cases snake bites can be easily prevented with some simple information and precautions. Here are some:

* Tree Removal – If your home or yard is around trees, there are several products on the market to help keep snakes away. Some of the most effective sprays to deter snakes from your yard are: Bonide Snake Stopper, Ortho Snake repellent spray, Dr. T snake repellent spray, and Nisus snake repellent spray. These products generally work well. Be sure to use these sprays as early as possible in the growth season. This will give the snakes an extended period of time to get used to the scent and be sure not to use the product near your food where it may be ingested by the snakes. The best way to prevent this is to leave food where snakes cannot reach it.

* Landscaping – Do not walk directly into standing water. Instead, make sure to scour your yard for any snakes that may be hiding in the grass, weeds, undergrowth and rocks. Get rid of dead branches and sticks that may be sitting on the ground near the perimeter of your home. This will keep your scent from becoming too overpowering. Another thing to do is trim any overgrown limbs that may be creating gaps in your perimeter.

* Landscaping – Do not use chemical pesticides or baits near your plants. These may cause damage or kill the plant, which is not good for your garden. Instead, use a garden hose or sprinkler to spray around your garden to discourage snakes. To help the snake get away from your garden hose, you can create a barrier by putting up pots or tubs of water. You should also consider putting up bird baths or fountains to chase away snakes that may be looking for water.

* Camp Sites – There are two primary ways that snakes can enter camp sites. First, they can climb into the ground and crawl along the surface of the ground. This type of entry is usually the most difficult to treat because snakes tend to eat very little, if any, food when they are hungry. The second type of snake entering a camp site is via decayed animal carcasses, such as dead raccoons, squirrels, etc. If you find any such carcass near your campsite, spray around the area with a dry granular mixture.

* Pets – Using snakes to discourage pets in your yard is one of the most promising reviews for treating snakes. Many pet owners who find snakes in their yards will often poison them in an attempt to kill them. However, killing pets is never a good idea. You should try to encourage your pets to live in a cage or pen. And you should keep a first aid kit on hand to treat any bites and scratches.

* Landscaping – Using snakes to repel other pests is also very promising. Snakes have been used in landscaping for years. In fact, it is possible to find guides on the internet that outline various ways to control snakes in your yard. These guides often outline methods such as creating a maze that snakes cannot jump through, laying out traps (often made of cedar wood), and other methods to make it difficult for snakes to access your yard.

* Garden Pest Prevention – Using snake repellent in your yard is another way to discourage snakes from living in your yard. Many people choose to use this method before moving into their home. After all, lawns and gardens are often areas where moles and other garden pests like mice and rats get to enjoy their meals. So, adding a safe repellant to your lawn and garden can help to ensure that these critters stay away. When you do move into your new home, you will be ready to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor!
