Most homeowners would not be surprised to find a snake in their yard since they love to slither through yards as they use rocks and debris for hiding. They prefer to be left alone, and if approached, they are more than likely to flee as they find humans to be very frightening. However, just because they are likely to avoid you doesn’t mean you should approach them. If a snake perceives you as a threat, it may become defensive, and with no way to know whether or not a snake is venomous, the risk is too high. Snakes would rather sunbathe atop a rock than confront you.
Preventing Snakes on Your Property
While it is advised that you do not attempt to approach snakes on your property, there are still effective ways to reduce the snake population in your yard while simultaneously making it less appealing for snakes. Since snakes love hiding places, some simple landscaping and tidying up of your yard can have great effects. By removing rocks, fallen branches, and unnecessary shrubbery, you give snakes less of a reason to want to be in your yard.
