Repelling Snakes?

Can food diatomaceous earth be used to repel snakes? We are moving into a new house that backs onto a man-made pond. I understand how to use DE for spiders (NC has spiders the size of a small tree root!) and I have read that I can use it also for Japanese beetles and grubs. But what about snakes? Will a border of DE keep snakes from our backyard? We had a wooded lot, no pond; a few years ago and it was loaded with copperheads, so I know snakes here in NC are inevitable. But, if anyone knows of any good methods for repelling snakes, it would really help! Thanks.

I am not familiar with diatomaceous earth. However, after research on the internet about how to keep snakes from nesting in the crevice between my homes foundation and the sidewalk, I learned that snakes do not like strong, offensive odors. Moths balls have worked for me. Also, I purchased a spray repellent that smelled like capsazin. So now I use linament cream instead as its less expensive.

Good luck
