Mothballs will work. You just have to use enough of them and give them time to work. When I first moved to where I live now, I too had a really bad problem with copperheads, so I started buying 4 or 5 boxes of mothballs a year and just randomly throwing them all around my property during the early spring. Haven't seen a snake in years.

You may call a pest control company and ask them what would work.

A couple of stray cats will do the job.

Can you use moth balls safely if you have animals? I have dogs and I wouldn't want them to get poisoned or anything but I would like to get rid of the snakes.

Go to www.snakestop.com
I have never used any of it but it might be something you may consider using. Its worth a try. Moth balls never worked for me either.
I no longer live in the house where we had snakes so I dont know if there are any there now or not.

Not sure where you live Smile, but some towns have ordinances on lawn upkeep. If the place is overgrown thus causing the snake infestation, maybe you could contact your local law enforcement? Of course if you live in a rural community this won't help I understand. At that point you could just burn down the house! JUST KIDDING! LoL. Good luck w/ the snakes :(

If you and your husband had't killed so many
cats, maybe you wouldn't be bothered with so
many snakes. You are a fake christian (Only on
Sunday at time of service)Why do you keep tell
ing people you know you are going to heaven.
First you need to learn to love your neighbor.
You will never let that happen. So accept the
fact that you are SATIN-that's why you are the
one see the snakes.This is a curse God has put
on you. You will see them befor any one else. Jusment Day will tell.
I hope you can sleep when you go to bed, or is
it that you still sleep on the couch?

Now that is not nice thing for you to say about your neighbor, even if you know the whole story it would be spreading gossip, as a tale bearer.. Would it not?
To begin with the Bible does not agree with your conclusion.
~~~~~~~~~~
When you misrepresent God... and judge your neighbor.
~~~~~~~~~~
These are the words of Jesus to all of us.
Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Unless you are wiling to have the snakes your self,
You should not judge why these snakes are bothering your neighbor.

Oh I just love this!!! Those are two of my favorite scriptures latly.

The mothballs will not hurt other animals,I know someone who use's them for spider's and such and they hav'nt seen any so Smiles at least dump a bunch of box's out and try it. Can't hurt, as for the other poster, sounds crazy to me!
