Snakes MACE snake repellent is a unique and highly potent combination of ingredients that irritate and confuse a reptile's chemosensory system or “sense of taste and smell”. Our formula repels by disrupting snakes Jacobson Gland, irritating the snake, causing it to turn back and seek a more pleasant environment. When these sensitive senses are confused, snakes are unable to gather information about its surrounding environment; forcing it to flee the area and look elsewhere to survive.
Snake Repellent Tips:
Keep your landscape as clean as possible by removing any rock or wood piles. Cover firewood piles with a tarp sealed to the ground. Snakes like to hide, so remove any leaf piles, compost piles, mulch piles, and overgrown bushes or brush. Limit or remove any moisture on your property, including small ponds, bird baths, rain barrels, puddles, pool cover moisture, and more. In summer months, snakes eat rodents and hide in hard-to-find, cold and damp areas, to cool down.
Fill in any live or abandoned animal burrows that snakes can find shelter in. Trim your overhanging tree branches. Some species of snakes are more willing to climb and may drop down on your home or yard. Keep your grass short. You can more easily locate and repel snakes, and they will avoid the area for fear of predators. Every snake species behaves differently. They hide and behave differently during the warmer months than they do during the colder months.
Secondly, do your best to remove or repel their food source. Snakes love to eat frogs, mice, rats, moles, voles, slugs, snails, grasshoppers, insects, eggs, fish, small farm animals, and more. Remove any excess trash and limit feeding your pets outside. Bird feeders will also attract rodents such as chipmunks and mice, so consider relocating or removing this.
Lastly, protect your home by sealing in any possible entry points. Use sealant, caulk, or expandable foam to fill in any cracks, holes, or crevices. Keep any barns, sheds, or garages sealed tight and tidy inside so that snakes are less likely to come in to hide. Snakes commonly seek shelter under sheds or in storage areas.
If a snake manages to get inside your home, you may have a mouse (dead or alive). Remove the mice, seal all entry points, and repel the mice from returning. Replace any damaged piping, gutters, ventilation ducks, door, or window screens. Routinely check crawl spaces and vents leading outside. If you are dealing with a venomous snake issue, it may be best to contact animal control or a professional pest removal company to avoid being bit.
