I've always been told to burn the snake where you kill it and it will keep other snakes from coming around that area. Just thought i'd share that.
I don't know about plants, though my dad swears by his hint. He sprays kerosene around the peremiter, hasn't seen a snake in years.
The only thing I have ever seen that gets rid of snakes is outside cats. Of course mine have a habit of bringing them to me to show off. I have garter snakes that hang around my pond and they are beneficial so I just watch where I step!
The perfect way to keep snakes out of your yard is to plant mint around the border. Snakes hate it and you have a wonderful plant for cooking and teas. You could also lay hemp rope around the border of the yard, snakes won't cross it. The only thing left after that is to get rid of the snakes that are now trapped in the yard. LOL
Don't know about the mint, had one hanging out in my mint garden trying to eat the baby rabbits that lived there. My weed wacker took care of that problem.
I have a big Garter Snake that lives in my mint so not sure about that one!
I'm not sure this mint method works, I have a pet corn snake (common rat snake/ red rat snake) that has a mint plant growing in his enclosure and he likes to curl up in it to sleep.
I have heard that mothballs or grinded up moth balls Repel snakes..
I have heard that mothballs will repel snakes
Moth balls does it for me. If it rains a lot you have to redo them soon as they melt away!
