    I took on a yard clean up(that was let go for 2-3 years) and I have ran across 7 gardener snakes so far. 6 in one day. Is there anything I can put down to get rid of them.:hammerhead:

    Garder/Ribbon snakes pretty much only hang around where there are small frogs and lizards. Make sure the yard doesnt have water buildup on or around the property. When the frogs are gone, the snakes will leave also. Lots of people think they eat bugs but that is not the case. When they are first born they may take on a few bugs for a while but adults wont touch bugs.

    In the old days, moth balls were put around foundations--Don't have any evidence that it works. It would be good research to compare the AI in "Snakes Away" and moth balls.

    Just grab 'em. Put 'em down the mole tunnels. Let 'em fight it out. Put a few in a paper bag under the seat. Use 'em for the next lawn.
