    Hi Doti, If you have snakes hanging around your property, it is due to there being a good food source available for them. I'd check for moles, mice, etc. in the yards and surrounding areas. Once you get rid of their food source, the snakes will leave the area and take up 'residence' where they will be well fed. Good Luck.

    Hello there,

    Are they living on your property, or just visitors? Don't leave anything about to encourage them to stay around!
