I also have been told sulfur will repel them (and I think I would rather smell sulfur than mothballs; think it is a little more environmentally friendly, too?)

Farmer's Coop around here has some type of crystals/granules that you can put down that snakes will not cross. It keeps them away for quite a long time. If you have a coop there, I'm sure they will know what the stuff is.

My husband said that mothballs is the answer. If you just put some mothballs under your deck that would get rid of them. I hope it works. I am afraid of snakes also.

Have you tried ammonia? I know that it repels other animals.
