What is the easiest way to get rid of snakes at your dacha: ways, tips, important information

The dominance of snakes in their summer cottage - not the most common problem, but if it arose, these reptiles can be a real disaster.

After all, bask in the grass, knowing that somewhere nearby a poisonous and dangerous reptile can lurk - a pleasure, let's face it, so-so! How and with the help of what means can snakes get rid of and what to do in order not to suffer from their bite?

Where do snakes come from in the garden plots

The problem of the appearance of reptiles in the habitats of people - the people themselves.

Mastering new territories, building up wild areas of nature yesterday, cutting down forests for these purposes, we step on the natural habitat of animals, including snakes, and leave them no choice but to find a new place for themselves.

Often they find it on the lawn under the shade of garden trees. Sometimes, oddly enough, we personally import snakes to our own plot along with building material.

Such an opportunity is rather exotic, but it should not be discounted either, especially since, having been forcibly entered into new conditions, snakes can behave particularly aggressively.

Important!The most favorite place of reptiles in our country house may be garbage or compost pits, because decaying organic matter releases heat and moisture.

Moreover, inside such heaps it is quite quiet and calm, which is especially important for creeping during laying eggs and breeding offspring.

But also careful it is necessary to be in a dark and cool barn, where snakes can arrange a nest with comfort.

In the roots of a garden tree or enough adult, loose and shady shrub snake can also settle down.

We have to admit that the kind of reptile on its own plot can cause horror in most of the owners and especially the housewives, but in fact, it’s not in all cases that you have to fear for your health.

The most widespread in our latitudes are snakes, snakes, coppers, are not poisonous at all.

But there is an exception: the viper. The bite of this snake can actually be fatal, and although it is believed that the snake itself does not attack a person in order not to take risks, such neighbors are definitely worth being cast out decisively and mercilessly.

How to drive a serpent from the dacha

In order to understand how to drive the snakes from the site, you need to know what the snakes do not like or are afraid of in order to create the most uncomfortable conditions for them.

Killing snakes is not the most effective way to fight with them, it is much better to help the animals make their own decision to leave you forever.

Regular cleaning

If the snake accidentally crawled on your site, most likely, it will not linger here for a long time, if it does not find a suitable place for arranging the nest.

What are these places, we have already mentioned above, but if you eliminate the compost pit - it is hardly a successful way for a farmer to get rid of reptiles, then it is advisable to get rid of building materials (especially wood) in time. Of course, in a country farm anything can be useful, but if the problem of snakes arose - all the garbage off!

As for the compost pit, at least it is desirable to place it in a place where you and your children walk the least, and also make sure that there is no high vegetation around such a pit where you can not notice the hidden viper.

Carefully inspect the roots of old trees and shrubs for possible voids where reptiles can make a den.

Old trees with bare roots and stumps need to be cleaned on time. it will save you not only from snakes, but also from various insect pests.

Important!The first way to get rid of snakes from the plot is to deprive them of shelter, the second is to deprive them of food (snakes feed on toads and small rodents).

After you have taken out the garbage, do not forget to carefully level the area where it was located. If you have arranged a green lawn on the site - do not forget to regularly mow the grass.

A reptile nest in it is hardly suitable, but it can easily get out in the sun.

It is in tall grass with the maximum probability that you can not notice such a guest and get a fatal bite.

The sound of a lawnmower running is the best snake repeller.These reptiles hate noise and will try to get away from its source as soon as possible.

Animal hunters

It is logical to ask who else, except the mongooses from Rudyard Kipling's fairy tale "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", eats snakes and, accordingly, which animals can be attracted to their side in the fight against these undesirable neighbors.

First of all, you should think about the usual hedgehogs. In the duel "hedgehog against the snake" boldly place a bet on the prickly animal.

The hedgehog successfully hunts for other small animals, undesirable in the area - mice, rats, moles, mole rats, toads, lizards, etc.

Seriously speaking, drinking hedgehogs with alcohol is inhumane, because such a stimulant is very harmful for their bodies. Much better to attract hedgehogs with milk or meat scraps.

These animals just love cheese, but this fatty product is harmful to a small body. Spiky guests can also enjoy some berries from your garden.

In addition to hedgehogs, cats and dogs can resist reptiles, but unlike field predators that kill reptiles for their own food, it all depends on your pet's desire and mood. There are specially bred breeds of dogs (for example, Australian Terrier) that professionally hunt reptiles .

Pets can do you good service as natural repellents: sensing the smell of wool, fearful snakes can voluntarily get away from the potential danger.

To help them make the right decision, you can decompose the things in which the cat's or dog's wool has gathered, which are dangerous from the point of view of a possible nest.

Important!As a rule, snakes do not behave aggressively, but there is an exception: protection of offspring. Therefore, in the spring and then at the end of the summer, when the snakes molt and lay eggs, special care must be taken.

Scare devices

Reptiles, like moles, do not tolerate noise and vibrations. Based on this property, scientists have created special devices.

Several times a minute, they produce sound vibrations in the range to which snakes react and force them to go in search of a more peaceful refuge. Learn about how to deal with moles in your area.

The acquisition of such a device is a good way to solve the problem, because it is safe for humans and domestic animals, and, moreover, does not cause any harm to the soil.

Modern devices include the use of solar energy for recharging, therefore, having successfully installed the device once, you can forget about the problem.

It is necessary to find the right place for the installation of the repeller: it should be in the maximum proximity to a potentially dangerous area (for example, a compost pit) and not contain around itself interferences that will reflect or absorb sound waves.

Important!The viper is relatively resistant to ultrasonic stimuli and noise, but it perceives vibration very poorly. Therefore, in our latitudes, preference should be given to vibration, rather than ultrasonic scarers.

Repellers can be ultrasonic, vibration or sound. The latter are less preferable, as they will irritate not only snakes, but also bipedal visitors of the site.

On the other hand, a natural obstacle to the snake's nest is noisy work carried out in the country.

In addition to the aforementioned lawn mowers, this may be the work of a circular saw, other devices or just a friendly, cheerful company.

You can create a noise and personally prepared rattles, turntables and other devices, however, as was said, vipers can quite comfortably tolerate such stimuli.

Sometimes they offer to lay out the area with pieces of cloth soaked in diesel fuel. It may be that the reptiles do not like the stench of the country, but whether you want to breathe it yourself is a big question.

Poisons and chemicals

There are several answers to the question why don't kill snakes. This method is ineffective: if the reptiles attracted something in your country house (for example, there is a great place for a nest), it means that they will come again.

In addition, to destroy animals that, unlike insect pests, do not cause any damage, and attack only as a defense - inhumane. And yet it is believed that, when dying, the snake emits a special smell, on which its relatives slide.

You can also try using poisons.

But be prepared for the low efficiency of this method: snakes are hunters, they will not eat poisoned bait, and if the venom emitted into the atmosphere scares the predator away, it can be dangerous for you, your children and pets.

As already mentioned, diesel is used as a poison against snakes. Also applied herbicides, nitrate, naphthalene, ammofoska. Poisons developed against cold-blooded animals are also available and can be used.

Folk methods

It is much more humane to use folk methods against snakes. It is believed that these reptiles can not tolerate harsh odors, including natural and completely harmless to humans.

You can plant garlic on the perimeter of the plot or scatter dry mustard (this may save you from a reptile visit, but it is unlikely to drive it away from the plot after it has settled on it).

Reptiles also react badly to fire and the smell of burning.

Some gardeners recommend setting fire to a tire at a site, but this method can disperse not only snakes, but also all neighbors, therefore it is better to simply make a fire from dry grass and leaves, observing all fire safety measures.

As already mentioned, vipers do not like the smell of natural wool. If you do not have cats or dogs, you can spread out around the perimeter of the bundle of yarn, using yarn or old woolen things.

And two more tips for last. Snakes are very attracted to areas located in the valley. Therefore, if you are lucky enough to have a cottage on the very shore of the bay - be especially careful.

And having found a snake skin on the ground, immediately take it as far as possible, because it carries the smell of the hostess and is a lure for her fellow men.

Moreover, some argue that the snake deliberately sheds its skin in a place it likes, which it certainly plans to return to.

Precautionary measures

Having found a reptile on your territory, do not try to identify it.

Despite the fact that only every tenth snake in the world is poisonous according to statistics, a mistake can be too expensive.

Even after killing a snake, do not touch it with your hands, so that, having absorbed the smell of a reptile, you do not have to become a living bait for its “relatives”.

How to get rid of snakes at their summer cottage: means of fighting creeping creeps

The neighborhood with snakes in the country is not only unpleasant, but also dangerous. Even a non-poisonous one can painfully bite - he has teeth.

What to say about a far less harmless coop and extremely dangerous viper? Therefore, if you notice the presence of snakes in your area, you must get rid of them as a matter of urgency.

In this case, kill them in any case not worth it. They are an integral part of the biosphere of the region in which your cottage is located, and in fact it is you who came to their territory, and not they to yours.

Therefore, we must try to ensure a peaceful outcome for them and, most importantly, once and for all prevent them from visiting the site.

The snake attacks a person only in two cases - if it is frightened or provoked. However, this does not become calmer at all.

Not all adults, having heard a suspicious rustling in the bushes near their bare feet, are able to quickly cope with the adrenaline rush, allowing the snake to crawl its way. If we are talking about children, then their meeting with any of the representatives of this species is highly undesirable.

After all, a child can get a serious mental trauma from fright, not to mention the deadly danger of a snakebite for a child’s body.

Warning color viper

Reptiles are predominantly nocturnal, which complicates their detection and identification. However, the presence of snakes in the area for an experienced eye is always noticeable. Their main food - rodents, which are found very often.

Therefore, if no one eats gardenery crops planted by you, there are no hedgehogs in the vicinity of the dacha, and you yourself do not have a cat or a dog, most likely snakes are found on your site.

They live in burrows, which they prefer to dig in the marshy, shaded vegetation and on that always cool and slightly damp soil. In addition, snakes periodically shed their skin.

Its remains, which are called “creeps,” can be found in their habitats and migrations - in thick grass, bushes, close to water bodies and rivers, in areas with high soil moisture, etc.

The most dangerous time in terms of meeting with the snake fraternity is the beginning-middle of summer. It was then that the majority of species that are found on the territory of our country, the breeding season begins, and they themselves become very irritable.

If on your summer cottage there are snakes, you should not be especially afraid of them.

Their bites are not poisonous, but they themselves fear a person much more strongly, therefore, having seen you, they will most likely try to retreat as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, it is quite common for them to manifest their serpentine nature - when there is a danger of contact, they can hiss threateningly, take a “stance”, and even rush to their feet or other parts of the body in order to bite.

Already ordinary: black color and yellow ears

The main food of the snake is lizards, frogs and rodents, and the natural enemies are birds of prey, storks, and some members of the mammal order. The marriage period of the snake falls on April May.

Medyanka, easily recognizable by its characteristic color, loves an open, well-warmed area.

It is found in regions covered with deciduous, coniferous or mixed forests, and even knows how to swim, although it does not hunt in water and certainly does not hide from enemies.

The fishworm feeds on lizards and other small reptiles, as well as rodents and sometimes insects.

The characteristic color of the mediola

When meeting with a man, the snakes of this breed roll up into a ball and freeze, hiding their heads, although they may well behave aggressively. Copperfish awakens not earlier than April, but mates in late April - early May.

The adder lives in swampy forest areas and transitional zones between rivers or forests and meadows, but for some reason it is a place to be cultivated by man.

It is almost impossible to confuse it with another look - a characteristic color with a zigzag strip along the back will tell exactly who you are dealing with.

Viper: it is impossible to make a mistake

Fortunately, the adder has a rather calm character and never attacks for no apparent reason. However, its bite is very poisonous and, in the absence of necessary medical care, it may well lead to very unpleasant consequences.

Where do snakes come from in the country

Despite the fact that we do not live in an exotic country, and cottages are not tropical jungles, stuffed with pythons and boas, for many dacha plots the invasion of snakes becomes a truly huge problem. If earlier they appeared only in places closely located to forests and marshes, then due to forestry and drainage of marshes, snakes are forced to adapt and look for new areas for life. In addition, when taking out wood, snakes fall into regions that are atypical for them and are developed where people do not expect them at all.Dacha plots could not be more suitable for snake dwelling - warm, damp, compost heaps, garbage pits, gardens with rhizomes of trees, sheds with inventory, all these places are an ideal refuge and nest.

Important! Most snakes are nocturnal animals, so most often they can be encountered in the evening or early in the morning. It is easy to detect the presence of snakes from the remnants of skin discarded during shedding, to the sudden disappearance of rodents.

From the beginning of summer to the middle of the snake, they become especially aggressive and dangerous, since this is the time of mating games, breeding, breeding.

Getting rid of snakes: create conditions that are not suitable for their lives

As soon as there is a suspicion that in the area of ​​the snake, you should take a closer look at the corners that the sun warms up well, this could be the place of shelter for the snake. As a safety measure, it is better to wear rubber boots to avoid being bitten. The most frequent guests cottages:

In order for snakes not to take a fancy to your site, it is necessary to remove it properly to exclude all opportunities to hide - pieces of slate, boards, fallen branches, any other trash. The snake lives where it has food, shelter and a place for the nest. It is necessary to mow grass in time (lawn mower noise is also an excellent remedy for snakes, because they hate noise), keep track of compost heaps and arrange them away from living quarters.

Animals in the fight with snakes

  1. Jerzy. They can be brought from the forest, lured with the help of milk (but snakes love it too). In addition to snakes, hedgehogs destroy toads, mice, rats, even moles. Some practice the “Hungarian way” - pour a hedgehog with some wine or beer in a saucer, then the predator will turn into a “terminator” for snakes.
  2. Cats also hunt snakes, their bodies are not very susceptible to snake venom. But cats have a habit of “boasting” of prey in front of their owners, so you should not be surprised if a striped friend puts the killed trophy in the most prominent place.
  3. Dogs of special breeds (for example, jagdterrier) also fight with snakes. They are bred with certain features that help them track down and destroy prey. But they are also quite aggressive towards people, so you need to have a muzzle in readiness.

Oddly enough, snakes do not like animal hair, it can help eliminate creeping. Natural strands are laid out in places where snakes are supposed to live, where they may have nests or a rookery. It will take a little time and the snakes will leave the site forever.

Folk remedies and formulations for snake control

Since snakes are sensitive to smells, you can scatter dry mustard on the territory or plant more garlic. It is also advised to remove all skin from the site after the molting of snakes, because they return to the old places and live where they left their skin. By the smell of the snake determines this place, but you should not take up the skins with your hands, so as not to attract the snake with your own smell.

If you burn grass on a plot, snakes are unlikely to come there - they can't stand the smell of burning. Some practice burning old tires or ash. As odorous repellents can be used amofosku, herbicides, naphthalene, saltpeter.

If your neighbors appeared at their dachas for a long time, you should remove the thickets and trash for them - the only way you can guarantee the outcome of reptiles away from your site.

Another effective and peaceful way to exorcise snakes is scaring with the help of vibration generators or the same unpleasant ultrasound for them.

However, the technique is not able to give an absolute result, so it is better to use folk remedies.

So, snakes do not like natural wool, therefore, spreading it around the perimeter of the site, at the doorstep of the cottage and other buildings, and in any other places where the snake can crawl, you have a rather high probability to get them back home.

Reptiles do not tolerate the smell of garlic, so they hurry to quickly leave the territory if you plant this plant in sufficient quantity not only in your garden, but also in areas where their appearance is most likely - around the perimeter of the fence, around shrubs, etc.

Garlic: Natural Snake Repeller

How do snakes appear on the site

The habitat of snakes is forest and landing. There are plenty of shelters, not too cold, there are plenty of sunlit glades and shady thickets, as well as tall grass.

However, modern statistics show that reptiles are increasingly leaving their usual habitats.
This happens for several reasons:

  • massive deforestation,
  • the appearance of nearby sources of noise, radiation,
  • climate change, including the average annual

Today, a dangerous neighbor can be found even in populated areas. People ask questions about how to get rid of snakes indoors, since reptiles seeking shelter even enter private houses or office buildings of enterprises. It is easy to meet them in the grass of summer cottages, near the suburban reservoirs.

However, the most frequent appeals about unwanted guests are from suburban real estate owners. Especially if there is a garden in the backyard territory and there are thickets of raspberries, grass and bushes.

Knowing how to get rid of snakes at the dacha is extremely useful, as it helps to significantly increase the level of safety of yourself and your loved ones.

However, the appearance of reptiles in the habitat of people is not necessarily related to the fact that a forest or a dense landing is located close to a specific territory.

Often snakes are brought from afar. For example, there are known cases of reptiles near and on the territory of settlements after their delivery, along with materials for dumping roads and embankments.
While reproducing in an unfamiliar environment, reptiles behave nervously, change the habit of avoiding noise, and people literally move without any caution in search of shelter.

Common snake species in Russia

Most species of snakes, which are common in Russia, do not pose a danger to humans. Not here and extremely poisonous copies. For example, there is no cobra and other species that can kill almost
In Russia, common:

  1. runners,
  2. Already,
  3. Copperhead

The most dangerous is the adder. Her bite is potentially lethal. Poison does not have a fast mechanics of action, does not cause pronounced tissue necrosis. He may not be enough to kill a fairly massive character.

However, if a viper bites a child, you should immediately seek medical help, because in its absence the risk of death is high enough.

The viper can be distinguished by its characteristic skin pattern. The snake is rather small - up to 70-80 cm, however, it possesses considerable strength and is capable of extremely fast movement during aggression.

It is clear that in the case of a meeting with a reptile - no one will study the pattern of its skin. Therefore, it is necessary to know in advance how to get rid of snakes in the garden and take appropriate measures.

Other species of reptiles, which are not dangerous for humans, are more common for a cautious viper.

For example, snakes, which can be identified by characteristic specks on the head, can get into a house or garage to make a nest for wintering.

In contrast, the viper organizes a den away from the shelter, fearing noise and human presence. But even, met in the house - an undesirable guest.

Knowing how to get rid of snakes in a private house will help to live peacefully and not be afraid for the health of loved ones.

Natural habitat change

If the snakes have chosen the garden and began to consider the yard as their territory - you can get rid of them just by changing the environment.

  1. clean up
  2. get rid of rotten boards, repair buildings on the site,
  3. destroy tall grass
  4. encourage natural enemies to settle on the site

Each task needs to be solved as thoroughly as possible. But these simple ways to get rid of snakes in the area are effective enough if the number of individuals in the population is relatively small.

To bring cleanliness is, first of all, to remove all trash and garbage. Snakes especially like heaps of leaves, various weed residues from the garden,
heaps of construction trash, places with pronounced processes of decay and decomposition.

Therefore, it is necessary not only to restore order by cleaning - but also to maintain it. For example, to structure garbage, to stack it only in specially designated places with frequent export.

Dingy buildings, open aisles in the space under the floor - a great place for snakes. Reptiles there feel protected, including from noise.

To prevent snakes from meeting in a building built on stilts, it is worth carefully sealing any passages to the underground, closing the ventilation passages with a fine grate.

No less important is the destruction of high grass. This is the easiest way to get rid of snakes in the country. Carefully mowed grass will deprive reptiles of shelter, will force them to change their habitat.

To enhance the effect - you can destroy the grass with a lawn mower. Her noise is extremely not like snakes.

It is recommended to work in high rubber boots to minimize the possibility of a successful attack from a disoriented and frightened reptile.

The last measure (the attraction of the natural enemies of the snake to the territory) is quite doubtful.

Snakes are best hunted hedgehogs. They can be attracted by leaving slices of stale meat in a bowl of beer.

In addition to snakes, hedgehogs destroy mice, rats, various harmful insects, toads. However, the animals themselves - can become a problem, literally ravaging the site.

Domestic cats and dogs also hunt snakes well, considering them as violators of their own territory. However, the habit of bringing prey to boast to the owner - can not be called the most attractive.


The use of chemistry can be justified only by excessive reproduction of snakes on the site or the presence of poisonous rocks on it.

The fact is that the poison is quite aggressive and strongly affects all, without exception, the inhabitants of the cultivated area. In addition, it significantly affects the environment.

Before choosing a chemical product for the destruction of snakes - you should consult with the appropriate experts. The problem is different performance.

Reasonably versatile drugs that kill all kinds of reptiles, are not able to quickly destroy the population or cause it only minor damage.

Calculated on the destruction of a particular breed - should be selected, first of all, after identifying the type of snake.

Chemicals of this type are practically not found in the free market. Ordering an effective tool is easiest on foreign sites. One of the brands of a snake poisoning drug is SnakeShield.

It comes in the form of granules, which include sulfur, as well as a mixture of various essential oils. Means
enough to scatter on the protected area.

Snake Repeller

Today, you can easily purchase an effective enough device to drive away unwanted inhabitants of the territory.

Snake repellers work in the ultrasonic range, simultaneously forming vibrations.

The price of such devices is reasonable enough to protect the territory in this way.

Ultrasonic emitter can have a different design and type of power. The most popular models are a kind of pin, inside which there are batteries. There are devices on the market that are powered from a 220 V network and also equipped with a solar panel for recharging batteries.

You can scare away snakes in simple ways.Bells, ringing sticks, tin cans, pieces of foil hung on trees and bushes will form a noise that will disturb the snakes. Over time, this will force them to leave the territory with adverse conditions created.


The snake causes an instinctive, uncontrollable fear of most people. And the desire to get rid of these neighbors is quite natural.

However, the application of any tool should not wait for a quick result. Repellers are slow, as is territory cleaning and other methods.

Even a poison bait does not give instant results. Snakes are predators and prefer fresh, live food.

In addition, reptiles are able to go without food for a long time. Therefore - do not immediately pay attention to the bait.

However, the opposite is also true: any of the means described above is useful enough to keep as little as possible, or not at all, to encounter both harmless and poisonous snakes on a site or inside buildings.

Methods to get rid of snakes on the plot

Gardeners have many different problems, someone has to fight against plant diseases, ants, moles and other troubles, and someone has snakes on the plot! Of course, the snake in the country - it is not just a nuisance, which can pretty spoil the harvest, but it is also life threatening. And if the children?

To catch snakes, you need to know their main habitats in the area where they breed, namely: near the compost heap, under the house, in a pile of manure or debris, under the roots of trees (stumps), in the gaps between the logs, sometimes in basements or in the garden trash.

In the loose soil snakes pave the way. So, to get rid of the snake in the area, you need to do the following.

Try to catch. Snakes love strawberries, so let these beautiful and tasty berries be the bait. Burnt milk can be used. In the evening, put a container with strawberries and hide from a visible place, but so that your review is not closed, wear rubber boots just in case.

You can try to get rid of snakes at the site with the help of store chemicals, having tasted that, the snake dies after a while. However, this drug should be attractive to the snake refused to cherished delicacy in the beds and crept to the bait.

Among the cats there are snake hunters who most often catch small specimens. It is believed that our smaller, striped and baleen friends quietly endure a double portion of snake venom.

Good hunters on snakes and rats are yagd-terriers.

Compliance with site security

In order to minimize encounters with snakes at their sites, it is necessary to take some security measures:

Remember that the most poisonous snakes will live only in the garden, and the most problematic snakes will be the smallest. So, how to get rid of snakes in the basement?

Never take a snake in your hand if you are not 100% sure that the snake is not poisonous and not dangerous.

Sealing. Go around your entire house in a circle - your goal is to find everything, even small holes, close to the ground - these are reptilian entry points into your basement. As soon as you find all these holes, immediately repair them.

Easily accessible products. Food attracts snakes to the house. Make sure you put all pet food in a tightly closed container. When there is no food - it makes no sense to stay in the house.

In the latter case, you can safely try any solutions to combat them, because the snake is far away from the place where you sleep and rest.

How to frighten and drive the snakes from the dacha?

Few people are ready to meet the snake at their summer cottage, because these reptiles do not belong to the pests that gardeners, who defend the ripening fruits of their labor, have to deal with every year.

Therefore, it is not surprising that when snakes are found, many summer residents panic and get lost, not knowing how to repel this attack. In fact, everything is not as scary as it seems, but to get rid of an uninvited guest will succeed by following the following tips and recommendations.

Humane methods of struggle

When they first meet the new “neighbor”, most gardeners try to use all available means to destroy the snake, but it is better to postpone such drastic measures.

Secondly, the fight with a poisonous snake risks failing, and everyone knows about the possible consequences of snake bites from school.

For starters, you can use humane methods of struggle that will help scare off the snake and force it to change its place of deployment.

To repel snakes you need:

  • Keep the dacha clean, regularly mowing high grass and not cluttering the terrain with slate and logs, which often become the habitat of snakes.
  • Apply herbicides or diesel, scattering rags soaked in them throughout the site. It has long been observed that snakes react extremely negatively to such smells.
  • Plant more garlic on the plot, the smell of which deters snakes.
  • Spread on the site mustard.
  • Use the Chinese bells or similar devices that create a distinctive sound, because snakes never settle near noisy places.
  • Install special devices that create vibration. Today, there are many devices to scare away moles and snakes, which can be purchased at any garden equipment store.
  • Along the way, to carry out the fight against small rodents and insects, which are the main food for snakes. The disappearance of the food supply will force the snake to go in search of more favorable habitat conditions.
  • Use anti-repellents that emit a strong odor that frightens snakes. In addition, as part of some drugs are components that can impede the movement of snakes. Repellents are sold in powder form, which should be dispersed throughout the area.

How to destroy the snakes on the site?

Snakes are rather stubborn reptiles that are not so easy to get rid of. Everything becomes much more complicated if the snake not only chose the site, but also managed to lay eggs. In this case, you can be sure that she will defend her home to the last.

But not everyone is willing to rely on outside help. More often, people tend to destroy the snakes with the use of all available tools, including shovels, boards, bricks and any sticks.

Of course, fighters for the preservation of flora and fauna will not approve such a method, but sometimes the snakes stay in the plots is extremely dangerous and their extermination is simply necessary (for example, if small children are constantly playing in the country house).

But here it is important to know one thing. During the death of the snake emits specific substances, the smell of which can attract a considerable number of its fellows. In this regard, the dead snake should immediately be taken away from the dacha and take care of preventive measures, represented by spraying anti-mosquito repellents.

Do not forget about precautions

Regardless of the choice of measures to combat snakes in the country, for the period of "living together" it is important to remember the precautions. When meeting with a snake, you do not need to make sharp movements, much less try to catch it.

These reptiles do not belong to predators that threaten directly to humans, and bite snakes only for the purpose of self-defense and when danger is detected.

  • the first thing to call an ambulance, emphasizing the need for timely action,
  • try to calm down as much as possible and minimize movement, which will slow down the spread of poison throughout the body,
  • drink a few glasses of water or juice
  • put in the bite ice
  • get rid of all the rings on your fingers.

The above tips will help not only get rid of the snakes in the suburban areas, but also to prevent their penetration. Choosing one or another method of struggle, it is necessary to remember that snakes are an important element of the ecosystem and their destruction can lead to disruption of the natural balance.

Methods of dealing with snakes: chemistry, noise and animal assistance

These creeping reptiles prefer to live in the woods, so only special conditions force snakes to leave their nests and look for other, more suitable shelters. Much depends on the backyard plot - most likely these unpleasant guests will come to love summer houses, where:

  • there are a lot of insects and small rodents, because they are included in the diet of snakes,
  • there are abandoned places where tall grass grows, garbage has been stored for years, etc.

This does not mean that in the well-groomed and well-groomed territory the snakes and vipers will never appear. They can choose as a new home a compost pile, a barn with garden and garden tools, thickets of berry bushes.

Snakes prefer cool and dark places, so they can live under a porch, crawl into a cellar or a corridor. Combat options are the most diverse:

Special preparations. These include mothballs, and nitrate, and ready-made repellents, which are sold in specialized stores. Effective are herbicides, as well as diesel fuel.

Rags moistened with these liquids should be laid out once a month throughout the territory of the site. True, the use of chemistry should be approached carefully: it can easily poison children or animals.

Scarers. These cold-blooded animals feel discomfort when they hear the noise, feeling the vibration. Therefore, you can hang in the garden and in the garden turntables, rattles, bells, plastic bags or foil.

Some owners use special sound scarers. They emit vibratory signals and make the snakes leave their favorite places.

"Hungarian" method, or Operation "Drunk hedgehog." This cute prickly animal behaves modestly only in a sober state, but if it “takes it to the chest” slightly, it is able to fight with snakes. It is believed that the Hungarians were the first to come up with arranging saucer with beer and wine in the backyards, luring hedgehogs.

Hedgehog need not only water, but also regularly feed, so that he does not leave the site. Use the "Hungarian" method if you live in a country house or go there often.

Help a friend. In this case, talking about four-legged comrades - cats and dogs. It is believed that they can endure even a double portion of snake venom. Experienced gardeners assure that German hunting terriers cope with cold-blooded reptiles, which in parallel destroy rats.

Manual extermination. This cardinal way is suitable for fearless owners who are ready to wait for snakes with a shovel at the ready. As a bait, fragrant, ripe strawberries will suit - creeping animals love to feast on them. For safety, rubber boots should be worn.

Dead animals should be removed from the site with garden tools, removing the top layer of soil. In the same way you should get rid of the old snake skin, found in the garden.

Radical ways to drive out snakes

You can drive the serpentine collective from the dacha plot if you exterminate rodents, lizards, frogs and insects.A strong young cat will cope with this, and it will be happy to catch everything that rustles and crawls in the bushes and tall grass, including snakes. You can also get a dog breed yagd terrier. This dog is very difficult in education and care, but he is a real storm of amphibians.

Yagd Terrier: the enemy of snakes №1

There is such a "recipe" from snakes like hedgehogs. They feed on insects and plants, but do not tolerate the presence of reptiles, mercilessly destroying them. The only thing is that hedgehogs are quite difficult to attract, and if they succeed, they must be constantly fed.

The perimeter of the dacha, areas under a shed or a house, and especially under its threshold, can be watered or laid with a cloth moistened with nitrate, herbicide or other chemicals. But it can seriously harm your site and significantly reduce the comfort of rest. Hard chemistry has a sharp odor and, if used improperly, can literally burn out everything that it contacts with, excluding the appearance of vegetation in the places of processing for several years.

Ammonium nitrate - the most powerful oxidizer

Snakes are terribly afraid of high temperatures and smell a flame and a burning smell per kilometer. But burning grass, rubber and other materials based on petroleum products at the dacha is quite dangerous and harmful to the ecology of the site decision. Much less damage will result in hanging on the site bells, small wind turbines or rattles. Only here the sounds that they make will irritate you more, and as soon as you remove them, the snakes will come back.

Snakes make their nests in compost pits, manure heaps, in clusters of garden trash or inside old rotten stumps. If you find out in any case, do not try to destroy the serpentine lair yourself - let the professionals who are well prepared to meet with the venomous representatives of the snake kingdom do this.

What to do when meeting a snake and a snake bite?

Regardless of what you did to drive the snakes out of the dacha, the guarantees that they will not return by the next spring-summer season are rather weak. What to do if the probability of meeting with amphibians in the territory of your yard, kitchen garden, garden or the areas adjacent to the cottage is still high?

Meeting with a snake at the dacha fence

In this case, your responsibilities in the field of housekeeping should include:

  1. Teaching children and other households to take action that nullifies the risk of a chance meeting, and if so, the possibility of direct contact.
  2. Mandatory sealing of gaps and holes in the floor and other building structures of the country house and outbuildings.
  3. Treatment of old snake holes with naphthalene.
  4. Deceit and capture of snakes for the purpose of their subsequent release into the wild, away from the dacha.
  5. The organization of the country first-aid kit with a set of medical devices and drugs for first aid in case of snake bite.
  6. Arrangement of canopies, woodsheds and other outbuildings so that their design excludes the possibility of penetration and hidden dislocation of snakes.
  7. Acquisition of high rubber shoes and thick protective clothing for work on the site, in particular, in the thickets and on wetland or damp ground.
  8. Regular prevention of the site through the treatment of problem areas and the perimeter of agricultural or specialty chemicals, ash or other scaring agents.
Country first-aid kit: first aid for snake bites

If you are still bitten by a poisonous snake, remember that independent attempts to neutralize the poison can have far worse consequences than intoxication itself. Therefore, in this situation, it is necessary to immediately immobilize the victim and call the ambulance brigade, or deliver it to the first-aid post on their own.

If it were not for the bites, they could be put up with, having simultaneously got rid of rodents. Learn how to fight snakes at their summer cottage, what strategy to follow.

Be sure to know: first aid to the victim of a poisonous snake bite

These rules must be memorized. They will be useful to you if you have just found these uninvited guests in your possession, and have not yet begun to fight them. Everyone is at risk of being bitten by a snake, so remember what the victim should do.

  1. Drink plenty of water, it will help speed up the removal of poison from the body, and slow down its absorption. At the same time, try to move as little as possible and not to panic, so as not to cause tachycardia.
  2. Do not drink tea and coffee: these drinks accelerate blood circulation. Alcohol consumption is strictly prohibited when a snake is bitten. You can not even handle the wound with alcohol: ethyl thins the blood, accelerates its run through the vessels, and the poison quickly disperses throughout the body.
  3. Do not overtighten the wound with a bandage: this can ensure the stagnation of harmful substances at the site of the bite, leading to infection of the tissue.
  4. You can immediately after the bite gently suck the blood with poison from the wound. But it should be remembered that any wound on the oral mucosa, and even a destroyed tooth, can serve as a way for the poison to enter the body. At the same time, swallowed poison is absolutely not dangerous for the body: the mucous membrane of the stomach and esophagus is insensitive to this substance.
  5. After the poison is removed from the wound, the edges of the bites can be treated with green, iodine or alcohol. But in no case it is impossible to use oxidizing agents, for example, potassium permanganate, as well as alkalis or objects heated by fire.
  6. A bitten person needs to lie so that his head is lower in relation to the body: this way it is easier for blood to flow to the brain.

After all preliminary measures are taken, be sure to take the victim to the hospital, where he will receive the appropriate serum.

Keep the first-aid kit with the necessary funds at the dacha

Always keep in the immediate vicinity of a first-aid kit, which should include such means:

  • antipyretic
  • painkillers
  • anti-inflammatory,
  • antiallergic,
  • drugs for the cardiovascular system and high blood pressure,
  • antibiotics.

If the serpent on your site has divorced too much, or you are afraid to get rid of them yourself, then it is better to turn to herpetologists. But if you are ready for a serious struggle, then our advice will be useful to you.

Getting to drive out snakes: cleanliness is the key to success

Careful cleaning of the entire suburban area will certainly help you get rid of snakes.

For a creeping snake, anything can be an attractive shelter: fragments of planks, slate, logs, piles of branches and debris.

Anything superfluous and unused must be removed from the site or destroyed.

Maintain order at the dacha so that snakes have nowhere to make a nesting place.

Constantly mow the grass in the garden or on the lawn. Thick high thickets - a great place for a snake.

By the way, a working lawn mower creates such a noise that snakes due to discomfort will have to get out to where it is quieter and quieter.

Therefore, the regular use of such a tool will only benefit the garden, and you: the snake crawls off to look for a place with a higher grass, which is easy to hide from the sun and prying eyes.

Snakes love to make their nests in compost heaps, where optimal temperature conditions for egg laying are formed.

Therefore, such places should be as far away from home as possible.

Your nest with the offspring of the snake will protect to the last, so it is better not to allow its appearance than to try to get rid of the whole family.

Note. Snakes are especially dangerous in the spring when there is a period of molting and laying eggs. At the end of the summer - in August - the snakes are activated again.

By the way, snakes are useful for the garden plot. They feed on toads, small rodents and moles, which are very harmful to your beds.

If you are not afraid of these amphibians, then they can become your allies (if we are talking about non-venomous snakes). But remember that snakes love strawberries and strawberries.

We'll have to choose: either you have a rich harvest of these berries, or hedgehogs with peppea destroy other pests.

Animals guard your plot

The main enemy of snakes is a hedgehog. Therefore, make sure that this prickly animal settled down on your site.

He will deliver you from other pests - moles, toads, mice and rats.

Few people think that hedgehogs are those predators that can destroy those who interfere with your harvest.

A small amount of alcohol (preferably beer or wine) will make a real warrior out of a hedgehog.

Arrange the saucer with beer in the area, and the hedgehogs “taken on the chest” in a state of easy intoxication will destroy everyone who makes the slightest competition on their territory.

This is the so-called "Hungarian way" of fighting snakes, or "drunken hedgehog."

Hedgehogs are considered the best snake hunters

Hedgehogs can be baited and milk. But do not forget that they, like snakes, love strawberries. At least from hedgehogs much more good.

Cats can also hunt snakes. It is believed that the cat's body can withstand snake venom. But do not forget that the baleen and striped lovers love to boast of their prey. Be prepared for the fact that the cat will put the dead snake in the most prominent place.

Dogs breed yagd terrier just created to fight all kinds of snakes. In all other cases, it is better to put a muzzle on them: yagd-terriers can be aggressive towards people.

Natural animal hair will help scare off snakes from your site. Just lay it in strands where there may be nesting. Over time, the snakes will leave the site.

Chemical, folk, mechanical and technical means of fighting snakes

First of all you need to decide whether you want to drive the snakes away from your site, or destroy them. In the first case, these amphibians can easily return to you during the summer. The second option will give a guarantee for at least one season.

Deprive the food snakes: remove rats, mice and frogs from the site

  1. Snakes are very susceptible to odors. Try to scatter dry mustard on the plot (1 kilogram per 10 acres is enough). Just a few beds of garlic, broken in different sides of the site, can scare the snake.
  2. If you find an old snake skin, - carry it away from the site. The snake sheds its skin at the place where it is going to live during molting, so it will definitely return to the old skin. But in any case, do not take the mow with your bare hands, so as not to leave your smell on it.
  3. Try to burn an old car tire in the area: snakes cannot stand the smell of burning rubber. As, however, and ashes, and scorched territories. If you practice burning grass on a plot in the spring, snakes will not bother your garden.
  4. Mothballs, saltpeter, ammofosk, garden herbicide will repel reptiles from the dacha. Snakes do not like chemicals, so rags scattered around the site, soaked in diesel fuel or herbicide, scare them away.You can buy in the store special poisoning agents for the destruction of cold.
  5. Try to enclose the site with a fence with a high base, which is sprayed with chemical agents.
  6. Hang out in the garden of Chinese bells, rattles and turntables, which in the wind will create noise and vibrations. Snakes are very fond of peace and quiet, and can not stand the noise. Therefore, they will flee from uncomfortable conditions in search of better housing. Electric mole scarers also help in the fight.

The most effective way to prevent the emergence of snakes on the site - to deprive them of food. Bring from the dacha moles, mice, frogs, rats - all that cold-blooded people like to eat so much - and snakes will not find anything interesting on your territory for themselves.
