How can I get rid of snakes in yard

Westmoreland County Pennsylvania

Expert Response

There is no magic way of getting rid of snakes.  If you get rid of your rodents, you should have fewer snakes.  Mouse traps baited with peanut butter are a good way of controlling voles and mice.  https://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG64_Snakes.pdf   Keep in mind that snakes are beneficial.  They keep rodents under control.  vw
