Snakes are creatures of habit, so they tend to stick to the same hunting grounds. If you want to keep snakes out of your yard, it’s important to understand how they move around and what kind of plants they like to eat.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes?
While there are no plants that repel snakes, you can use aromatic herbs and flowers to encourage snakes to stay away. Some recommendations include lavender, peppermint, and chamomile. You can also use a commercial product called Snake-Away® Granules to deter snakes from entering your garden.
The scent of animals or urine is very attractive to snakes because they rely on their sense of smell to find prey and mates. Snakes have special organs in their heads that help them smell better than any other creature on Earth!

- Peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil – These two ingredients make an excellent combination for keeping snakes away from your yard or garden! Just mix together equal parts of both oils before applying them in your desired location as a spray solution. You can also replace one part eucalyptus oil with another type of essential oil like citronella if you want something less spicy smelling around the house; however, this might not work as well because some reptiles have learned how to ignore certain smells over time due to their heightened senses when hunting prey down so sometimes using multiple scents simultaneously can help keep them out of certain areas where humans might normally feel safe anyway.”
