This answer was rated:

I have been told that their is something I could put around my house to help keep snakes away. Can anyone tell me what this is? or other option I could do for this. Reason I had a snake in my home about a week ago. Thanks

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

Hello there and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am very happy to help you with your question.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

Are you looking for some type of repellent or something natural?

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

Chemical snake repellents are available, but they can pose risks to people, pets, or the environment if they are not used properly.

Customer:

I would like to consider the one that works best, XXXXX XXXXX would like something more natural if it works

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

You can also consider building a snake proof fencing around your home or garden if other methods fail to control the snakes.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

The best stuff I have seen to date would be liquid fence. Here is a link to purchase it.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

This is a natural repellent.

Customer:

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I buy this locally? like a home depot?

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

Home Depot should be a reliable place to purchase this product.

Customer:

I think the snake came in under my shower in my main bathroom. It has a 2 foot square cut out for the plumbing. Is this something I could put here as well?

Customer:

Their is a opening here to get into my home, or the mouse has made a hole somewhere else I will have to find.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

The best method would be to seal any holes and remove a snakes food source, which would be rodents.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

You may try a rodent repellent first. If no food is available, a snake will not become present.

Customer:

What rodent repellent are there?

Customer:

it was a rat snake

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

Shake Away is a good rodent repellent.

Khristopher N. Sines AACJ :

This can be purchased at a local Walmart.
