Tips for residents to reduce the risk of snakes coming onto their properties:

  • Certain plants like marigold, wormwood, West Indian lemon grass, Sarpgandha and garlic are natural repellent against snakes.
  • Spreading human hair (taken from a brush or collected after a DIY home haircut) around the perimeter of your yard.  Snakes hate humans as much as some humans hate snakes.
  • Clove & Cinnamon Oil: Clove and cinnamon oil are effective snake repellents.
  • *NOTE* Ammonia is not recommended as it is not environmentally friendly.”
