Anyone have a home remedy for snakes in your house?


I’ve read about snake away and a very disappointed review. I live in Florida and this year has been a joy, chased 3 of the so far. Brown rat snakes, non-poisonous. I’d keep them but my wife is not fond of them.

    Snakes in your house? I would have to move!

    I am with your wife on this one. I have friends that used to work in a book warehouse that backed up to a state park. They would get slithering visitors often, so one of the guys devised a sticky trap. It was essentially packing tape laided out sticky side up in each doorway. At home I think you may be able to attach a door sweep to the outside bottom of each door as a barrier. A cat may help you round up the ones that do get in, if they are small enough.

    Look at the vents on your roof, dryer vent, fireplace, etc. They have an access that needs closed off usually with screen.
