Quickest way to kill a snake????
Also need preventative suggestions on keeping them away!!!
I live in the city, so the quickest way to be rid of a snake is to call animal control, and get someone with a long lasso pole and a canvas bag to come and tote it away.
As for prevention, trim back the vegetation around the house, seal any cracks around the base of the house, and remove the sources of food (usually, mice and rats). There are commercial snake repellents made of fox urine, or you can soak rags in ammonia, and place them where snakes seem to be nesting.
Oh Dear God thank you LISAVOLLRATH, I almost had an internal explosion.. I will heed all of this, too bad I'm in Mayberry and they don't have animal control, guess I'll find the nearest Bubba and have him get rid of it thanks!! Missing the city bad..
Very welcome. I have small, harmless snakes in my garden, but they still make me scream an ugly word whenever they wriggle up out of whatever I'm digging. If you're in the sticks, there must be a Bubba who will take yours off your hands.
We lived next to a field and when I was mowing the lawn as a kid, I ran over my fair share of snakes. They didn't had a chance and I never saw them until it was too late.
I like a garden hoe. It keeps them at a distance. If you have a lot of stone walls, uncut grass and woods then you will have snakes. Snakes are not really good to kill because they eat mice and rats, there by keeping the population down.
Initiate a controlled/prescribed burn of your property if that indeed can be an option. We once owned 4 acres that we eventually built a house/ranch on. So I arranged for a prescribed burn by our local forestry agency. There was no charge and it yielded 8 crispy snakes; namely, 1 coral snake and 3 rattle snakes and 4 good snakes. The significant spin off was the burning off of biomass acted like fertilizer and the grasses came back in a more deep green and grew in so dense it seemed to take care of any weed inception...
first thing, run into yr house, lock the door, close the windows, close any ventilation holes and call the animal control
This is a sick, stupid and cruel question that only an idiot would ask and dumb careless people give an answer to. You should not be killing anything. Snakes are part of the ecosystem and are trying to exist in a world being destroyed by evil humans. Those who kill wildlife should be killed. Snakes are just another species trying to survive. Like many other animals worldwide, snakes are dying off in regions because of humans destroying habitats, polluting, creating fires, rounding up and killing snakes for profit and collecting them to sell. Posting questions like yours is promoting the execution of wildlife.
Take a shovel or hoe and cut its head off. If its not poisonous leave it alone it can't hurt you. As for keeping them away, there really isn't any, sorry.

I never figured out, despite my experience of living a lifespan of 45 years, why humans kill and torture animals for food. Why do Muslims and Christians still practice killing animals for meat? Is that allowed in their so-called religions of mercy? They should better learn from the Buddhists and...
