The Green Solution to Snakes
Snakes are one of the top phobias, going back thousands of years. They are one of the most feared pests in the world. B&B professionals can help you with that by repelling snakes with their Snake Prevention Program.
Of the 2,700 snake species in the world, 250 species can be found in the United States. Each year in the U.S. alone, there are approximately 45,000 victims of snake bites, including non-venomous bites. Of that number, about 8,000 are venomous snake bites, and 10–15 people die each year.
Now Pest Management Professionals can use a specially formulated dust snake repellent to help keep snakes away, plus homeowners don’t have to worry about using harsh materials that could harm their families, pets and property. You and I may like the smell of pumpkin pies, but snakes don’t. Using active ingredients like natural cinnamon and clove oils can actually repel snakes.
Where do you use Snake Prevention?
- B&B Snake Program can be applied around homes, yards, landscaping, gardens, foundations, barns and outbuildings, garages, woodpiles, sheds, campsites—anyplace where snakes may be a problem.
How does B&B’s Snake Program work?
- Doesn’t harm snakes; instead, it actually repels them—naturally.
- Contains a unique blend of natural ingredients that snakes find very unpleasant.
- Snakes “taste” the surrounding air, and the special blend of ingredients in the materials we use are especially unpleasant to them.
- When snakes come into contact with the materials in the air, an escape/avoidance reaction is triggered so the snakes are actually repelled away from the product.
To assess the pest problem and create an environment where snakes are not welcome, we recommend using the following steps and procedures:
- The snake is there for a reason, food, water, too hot, too cold, too dry.
- Food is most important. Inspect for signs of rodents, the snake may be following food into the structure.
- Inspect for entry points into the structure; holes in foundations, missing vents, etc.
What shape are the grounds in?
- Look for excessive vegetation harborage.
- Check surrounding areas.
