Suffolk County Critter Tips:
How To Remove Snakes - The worst thing you can ever have in your backyard is a couple of snakes. Although a common garden snake is not even as harmful as a black widow spider, yet there is a high chance of getting infected by its bite, especially when you have got small kids at home. Some gardens may also have rattlesnakes which are just much dangerous.
The best way of getting rid of snakes is to make sure that your backyard is not full of clutter and is neat and tidy.
Your backyard should not be a place to which snakes tend to get attracted. Make sure that you mow your grass twice every week. The shrubs and any small plantation present over there is trimmed regularly and if there are any types of insects which might be food for some snakes in your backyard, you should take care of them immediately. The bottom line is that you should not give any reason to a snake for residing in your very own yard, not only for the safety of your kids but for your safety as well.
The best way of getting hold of a snake it if is present in your backyard and a funnel trap is used. You can place it along the walls of your backyard or maybe even by the fence. Make sure that you place on such a place where you think the snakes mostly remain. What happens with a funnel trap is that whenever a snake or even any other animal crawls inside it, it will get trapped. While taking care of the snake you have to be sure that you don’t touch the snake or even the funnel trap directly. The best thing is to put a bucket on the funnel trap and then lift it making sure that the top of the funnel is covered by the bucket. Now you can throw the bucket away at a considerable space away from your home.
Another thing you can do for stopping snakes from getting in your backyard is to make it less attractive for them. By regularly mowing the lawn and trimming the plantation the risk is reduced a lot, but you really also need to take care of bird feeders as well, if any is placed in your backyard. This is because bird feeders are highly capable of attracting many insects and animals to which the many species of snakes are attracted to as well.
Reading books about how to remove snakes from your backyard also helps a lot as they provide you with all the firsthand information regarding the things to which snakes are attracted to the most.
Apart from the funnel trap there are also other types of snake traps which also work well for capturing snakes. Whatever kind of snake trap you place make sure to check it time and time again everyday to check if any snake has been caught or not.
There are even certain types of non-toxic anti repellents for snakes available. You can also try using them for getting rid of snakes in your backyard but beware that these repellents do not work on every type of snake.
Placing moth balls in your backyard also helps a lot. By sprinkling sulfur powder on all the doorways, the snakes will not enter your house as well. If none of the remedies seem to be working for getting rid of snakes, this means that you really need to get help from professionals. You can call your local pest control center and they will immediately take care of any type of snakes present in your backyard.
