Keeping Snakes Out of a Garden

August 20, 2010

Garter snake peeking out from under a strawberry plant leafWhy are there snakes in my garden? I love landscaping and enjoy staying in my garden planting and more, but since I saw the first snake a year ago I am very nervous.


Every week I find a snake in my garden front and or back yard. So, why that happen? I want to retake my garden work, but I am scared. Usually I find a black snake about 12 inches and yesterday I found a ringsnake, very small, in front of my door. Help please.

You will feel better when you Google and identify what snakes these are. Most are doing good things like eating bugs. Are there poisonous snakes in your area? Ask neighbors. Learn to identify poison snakes that may be in your area. Sure they need to be killed or removed. The others are probably helping you and your garden and you needn't have such a dislike. Study to understand. It helps the fear.

The easiest way to get rid of snakes is to put moth balls out and around the garden that you speak of. Moth balls are toxic to snakes and they will stay away!

My yard is full of snakes. I'm scared that they will bite me, but I don't want them dead. How can I make them stay out my yard? There are black ones and red ones.

Does anyone know how to get rid of snakes and keep them away? Too many snakes in and around my garden. They seem to be living in the crevices of an old stone fireplace. Thanks Ralphed
