A great way to rid your property of snakes is to repel them with a natural snake repellent. This method keeps snakes from being harmed as well as avoiding the use of toxic chemicals which may poison a pet or child.

Combining cinnamon oil and clove oil

Another common mixture you can use to deter snakes, especially if you have a larger area to treat, is combining cinnamon oil and clove oil and spraying the mixture on garden plants, the foundation of your house, and anywhere else you think you might have a snake problem. Use equal parts of cinnamon and clove oils and shake well before and during the application process. The major drawback of this method is that the mixture will need to be reapplied often as the mixture does not have much residual action, especially after a good rain.
