How to Get Rid of Snakes

Snake sliding through the grassMost of us, at one time or another, will be faced with the problem of how to get rid of snakes. Snakes, like a great many species of the animal kingdom, have had to adapt to a world filled with humans. The truth is that as snake habitats shrink and populations increase, there will be more and more human/snake interaction. Most people (and most snakes, if they could talk) will tell you that is not a good thing!

It’s one thing to view them through the glass panes of a vivarium or the mesh of a cage, but when you encounter them in the wild, in your back yard, in your garden shed or in your garage, it will usually be a surprise of the unpleasant variety, and also an incident bound to trigger your life-saving flight instinct. Most of us are not calm enough or brave enough during a surprise confrontation to even ascertain if said snake is venomous or not, IF we knew how to determine that to begin with.

Depending upon your love (What? There are people who love snakes?), tolerance of, or extreme aversion to snakes, your first thought may be to KILL that thingor to encourage it to go elsewhere, sparing its s-s-s-slithering life. Your brain will most likely be in overdrive as you quickly tick off a list of how to get rid of snakes, now and forever.

The best scenario is not to have these encounters at all, or if you do, to have a safe and effective way to discourage further chance meetings. If you are averse to killing snakes, there is one natural, very effective and safe way to not only send them packing, but to discourage their trespass on your property to begin with.

control snakes with nocdown cedar oilIt’s called NOCDOWN III and it has been proven, over and over again, to work! The product is natural, and the science is remarkably easy to understand. NOCDOWN III is a liquid cedar derivative. Cedar, in one form or another, has been used for centuries to deter the invasion of pesky insects into homes, closets and textiles. These discoveries led us to explore further the reasons cedar works. What the science community has found is that the smell of cedar interrupts certain insects’ and snakes’ scent receptors; it makes them unable to search out food, suitable breeding areas, or even a mate, forcing them to go elsewhere to find those things.

Snakes have a complex olfactory system, the combination of their nostrils and an extremely sensitive tongue. The tongue is even protected by a sheath while inside the mouth, and the cavity has a cleft that enables the forked tips to slide in and out easily while the mouth is closed. Scientists also believe the tongue is forked for a reason, collecting chemical particles on either side, to differing degrees, telling the snake in which direction to move to intercept prey or mate.

NOCDOWN III is an extremely offensive odor to the sensitive sniffing senses of a snake. If they are not already on your property, a barrier of NODCOWN III will ensure they stay off. On the other hand, if you’ve seen snakes, a strategic application, such as described here, will encourage them to move off of your property, at which time you can lay down a defensive barrier for long-term control.

NOCDOWN III is safe around your family and pets and will not harm any beneficial insects. It is all-natural and concentrated. Mixed with water, you can apply it using a pressurized hand sprayer or a hose-end sprayer.

Wondering how to get rid of snakes? Use NOCDOWN III!

    Just remember, snakes also eat other pests (insects, rodents) and in general want nothing to do with humans
