    Snakes are very beneficial in the garden, they keep the population of pests that will ruin your garden down. I know its startling to come across one, but they are seriously more scared of you than you are of them, and they do so much good! That being said, I really don't know if there is a way to deter them that is safe for them and your garden. Good luck!

      I agree!! They may startle you but they are very beneficial. Is your garden thriving? No bugs? Thank the Garder Snake! Maybe use a gardening tool to rustle your plants a little to alert them and scare them off?

    I've always heard moth balls were good to repel snakes. Some people swear by it and some: not so much. You would have to replace them over time with rain and dew as they will dissolve. PS: Mothballs can harm pets and humans if ingested.

    Here is a site to read about snake repllents.

    I agree with Diane. Nature has a balance. If you remove the snakes, whatever they are eating will multiply. I used to live in the country, and snakes would keep the mice population down in my barn.
