Are you worried about snakes entering your home or business premises? Snakes can be a frightening sight, and many people are not equipped to deal with them. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to deter snakes from entering your property, and if they do manage to sneak in, you can always call on the professionals for help.
One way to keep snakes away from your property is to use a specialised snake repellent. At Service Master, we offer an external application of a highly effective snake repellent chemical that will minimise the risk of snakes entering your home or place of work. Our team of experts will apply the chemical around your property, creating a barrier that snakes will be reluctant to cross. If a snake does manage to get in despite these measures, we also offer removal services to help you deal with the problem.
However, there are also steps you can take on your own to deter snakes from entering your property. Snakes are attracted to rodents and frogs, so one way to keep them away is to ensure that your property is rodent-free. If you have frogs in your garden, don’t worry – they are a sign of a healthy ecosystem. However, if you want to keep snakes away, catch the frog and release it at a nearby forest or nature reserve that is close to a source of water.
Another way to deter snakes is to remove hiding places. Snakes like to hide in dense bushes and garden rubble, so make sure you trim your bushes and hedges regularly and keep your garden free of rubble. This will make your property less attractive to snakes and reduce the risk of them sneaking in.
You can also block potential entrances for snakes. Snakes can easily slither through cracks and openings in your garden wall, so it’s important to plaster any cracks and close up any openings. The same applies to any openings in your roof. Snakes love to nest in cozy, warm spots, and your roof might be just the place they’re looking for.
At Service Master, we understand that dealing with snakes can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not sure whether they’re venomous or not. That’s why we offer removal services as well as snake repellent. If you spot a snake on your property and you’re not sure what to do, give us a call and provide as much information as possible. If it’s a venomous snake, we’ll send out one of our pest specialists to remove it safely and effectively.
If you’re not sure how to deal with snakes on your own, don’t hesitate to call in the professionals at Service Master. We offer snake repellent services as well as removal services, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your property is snake-free.
