Most snakes can adapt to their surroundings and most have specific requirements that dictate where they’d live. Many snakes live in dark and damp areas like tall grass, near ponds, and woodpiles. They prefer to live in areas that are abundant with rodents or insects. Snakes will enter homes in search of food or hibernate for the winter. They are likely to be attracted to locations that also attract rodents, such as houses, barns, and gardens.
Snakes mostly frighten people. That is about the extent of the damage they cause. However, snakes do bite if cornered. The easiest ways to keep snakes away are to remove potential sources of food and shelter. You should clear yards of refuse or woodpiles and frequently mow your lawn. Short grass helps discourage snakes from making their homes in residential lawns. Also, seal up cracks and gaps along exterior walls with fine mesh or caulk.
