Although I have not noticed any additional snake populations in the homestead I never the less find them undesirable and plan to rid the land of these ugly serpents. These reptiles tend to thrive in warm conditions since they are cold blooded creatures so it is important to eliminate places that they could call home. To help eradicate them you should always attack the places which offer them a spot for surviving. Ensure that the land is clear of any debris, seal up any cracks and holes in your house; avoid piles of bricks, logs, lumber and rocks which might harbor a safe refuge for the snakes. As I researched how to get rid of these creatures I chanced upon several techniques that have traditionally proven to be pure bunk.
Among the ineffective methods people have used to rid their home of these pests included flooding the snake holes with water. These wiggly creatures are resourceful and are capable of surviving for a period of time in water and eventually will crawl away unharmed. Another false concept is that spreading oil or diesel fuel around the parameter of your yard will keep them at bay. This is simply not true. Often people will place ropes around their yard with the belief that the snake will mistake the rope for another snake and avoid crossing over it. This is another fail since snakes have a great visual ability and quickly can discern such a trick. Additionally, when I worked at the Nature Center in Redden State Park we had snakes in cages and it did not bother the two snakes together to crawl up close to each other, often crossing over the other snake. One suggestion has been to place pig dung around your yards perimeter but this also is a false claim as the smell does not chase the snake away. The best you can hope with this remedy is to chase the door to door salesmen away.
The worse suggestion that I have found is placing moth balls around your home. Moth balls are a dangerous component and could easily seep down into your water supply or even contaminate your homestead. This by far should always be avoided. Does it sound discouraging? Not really, as my research has also shown that there are several natural methods by which I can fight the local snakes.
The key to getting rid of the beasts is in using plants which offend or harm them. Every plant has its own characteristic smell and biological features which can be employed as an effective snake repellent. Below are a few which tend to discourage snakes from squatting on your homestead. The first one is the common Marigolds.
The Marigolds official scientific name is Calendula officinalis. This magnificent flowering plant has repelling factor which are especially useful for ridding your home of these creatures. The characteristic smell associated with the Marigold irritates the naval system of snakes along with its stems milky sap corroding the skin of the snake causing it to itch. If the sap comes in contact with the snakes eyes it could cause blindness or blurred vision. This fact made Pam very happy as now she can happily plant her colorful Marigolds anywhere in the yard.
The next plant is the Andrographis Paniculata. This herbaceous plant from Asian contains bitter leaves and roots and in the event they are rubbed against the snake’s skin the animal will become swollen and experience considerable pain. There is an added benefit to using this plant around your yard as well since any prey that has touched the plant and is consumed by the snake the bitterness may result in death.
Another useful plant is the Rauwolfia Serpentina. Again this is an Asian plant and is popularly known as the “insanity herb” since it not only repels snakes but causes nerve interference issues with them. The medical component of this plant when rubbed on the skin of the snake acts as an inhibitor and may cause a heart attack in the snake.
We now come to the Cymbopogon Citratus or as most people know it as Lemon Grass. Snakes totally hate the smells which originate from this plant’s leaves. Lastly we encounter the Tulbaghia Violacea plant. This is a common plant from the African desert and is capable of surviving in major droughts. In Africa it is used to treat snake bites. The smell of its flowers and leaves act as an irritant to snakes resulting in an effective repellent.
It would appear that every plant has a purpose and its goal is to contribute to mankind’s well being. We are going to try these and see if they work as well as claimed.
