How do you get rid of Pine Snakes?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 25, 2012 12:25:24 PM PDT
I've always heard that Moth balls will repeal any kind of snake. Just scatter them around the yard where you've seen the snakes and under things where they can hide. My sister-in-law swears by this.

Yes this worked for us, I think. We put moth balls under our Ibis 8 Piece Modern Wicker Outdoor Sectional Furniture Set with Sunbrella Heather Beige (5476-0000) Cushions and I have not seen any snakes in that area again.

Are the moth balls harmful to anything else? Like my dogs or the plants or the lawn?

Daniel, moth balls ARE toxic to pets and children. It's not the best solution to get rid of snakes. The best thing: Eliminate hiding places, clean up all debris, wood piles, rock piles & things that attract rodents (which attract snakes). I don't want to be surprised by one, but I don't mind snakes around--unless it's a venomous one. Perhaps the reason moth balls may be successful is that they are toxic to other animals & so it kills off anything a snake may want to eat. Just a thought.

spread pulverized (not granulated) lime around your yard. It is great for the plants, non-toxic to animals but snakes don't like it because it burns their bodies.

Highly toxic!
