NCA Environmental Committee Report September 2020
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.”
