Has anyone used Snake Fencing to keep snakes out? Does it work?
Where I live on the outskirts of Los Angeles County we have had a rash of rattlesnake bites in the last few days. Mainly in pets. In years past, we have not had much rain so they were in less populated areas and did not turn up too often. Well this is going to be a banner year for them. With all the rain, they have decided to expand their horizons again. In addition I checked out an article by "redrockbiologics.com" (as well as others), for info. I Googled and found "snake fencing" and Home Depot, Lowes, and of course, Amazon (among others, those are the big 3 everyone knows), that sell the hardware cloth for this purpose. Apparently the depth which one must dig to install properly is key to the effectiveness of this product. Has anyone used this product? Does it really work? I also found a spray consisting of clover oil and cinnamon extract that needs to be reapplied periodically. Anyone ever try that? Just want to snake proof my yard for all the pets. While I love snakes in general as they provide many benefits to the ecosystem, I would rather keep the pets (and any guests), safe. Your thoughts?
