    The take away from the article posted above is full of great information. The take away from that article is, do not provide them a habitat to thrive.

      Thanks for your responses. The only thing that cannot be taken away is a two acre pond. Everything else is in compliance with the website. Thanks again.

    Sons are great at helping in this type project. They will pick them up and relocate them far away. When all else fails, a 410 Snake Charmer is indispensable for the venomous kind. Sorry, but I believe in the 3 strikes. As long as they are in their own area and not mine, we get along find.

    You’re between a rock and a pond pardon the metaphor.

    Sounds like you’re going to have to just change your thinking. On the positive side, they should be doing a pretty good job of controlling all the other undesirable critters.

    Snake mace.1 800 760 0544. It is also biodegradable. Never throw mothballs around outside!. ONE can kill a dog and for some reason dogs are attracted to them. Especially the new ones, some moron decided to make them look like candy. The are perfectly round and shiny like a marble. Children can get very sick on them. Very poisonous and snakes could care less.

    Cats. Ever since I have had cats around, I see almost no snakes (except for small garter snakes that he plays with on the patio in the early spring, then leaves for me to dispose of when they're dead). I have always heard this, but now I find it to be true. But I still keep my eyes on the ground when I'm outside; nothing is 100% guaranteed.
