Bayshore Gardens Pest Control: If you’re a homeowner with a bit of landscape or yard, you may encounter snakes on occasion. While you can try to keep snakes out of your yard, even the best measures aren’t 100 percent foolproof, according to America’s Wetland Resources, which is based in Louisiana. 

“There are no poisons or repellents that work, though some new ‘breakthrough’ is occasionally advertised. Horsehair ropes and trails of mothballs have consistently tested negative, and pest control operators have no answers,” AWR said.  

Venomous snake bites are rare, and you can readily take steps to keep them away. If you’re an avid gardener, however, you may even want snakes in your slice of the great outdoors, since they diet on rodents and insects and can actually help protect your garden from pests. 

“As a general rule, snakes are just as frightened of you as possibly you are of them and often they move as quickly as possible in the other direction,” the North Carolina State University Cooperative Extension noted.

But there are still plenty of valid ways to limit, or possibly eliminate, snakes from your yard, garden or home. Here are four tips from the pros on how to keep snakes out of your yard:

1. Seal crevices
Closer to your home, seal the openings where snakes like to set up shop. “Check the clearance of door bottoms, weep holes, openings where pipes enter, cracks and spaces under eaves,” AWR recommended. “Don’t neglect storerooms and sheds.” 

AWR added that sealing enough openings to make a difference is much more difficult if you own a raised wooden home.

2. Tidy up the yard
Snakes might choose to live on your property or simply travel through, according to AWR. You want to make your property as inhospitable as possible, so concentrate on ridding it of any places snakes would consider good spots to hide. Remove debris — from piles of boards, tin, sticks and leaves to flatboats on the ground and piles of bricks or stone, AWR advised — and keep vegetation cut back. 

3. Stop serving the snake’s preferred menu
It’s a win-win. When you take away potential hiding places for snakes, the spots where rat and mice families like to congregate are also eliminated. 

To snake-proof part of your yard:

 Bury ¼-inch mesh wire screening six inches underground and build it up to 30 inches

Slant the fence outward at a 30-degree angle from bottom to top (Note: The supporting stakes must be inside the fence and any gates must fit tightly.)
Remove any tall vegetation along the inside and outside of the fence.
If you have a wooden fence, snake-proof the bottom: 

Use 1/4-inch hardware cloth cut in strips wide enough to overlap the bottom of the fence
Tack it securely to the wood and extend down into a narrow trench six inches deep
Words of wisdom from AWR: Either of these snake-proofing fence designs can give a homeowner quite the panic because “many snakes climb by looping over objects, and the above-described design may virtually eliminate their entry,” AWR noted. “Others, however, can crawl up vertical surfaces if they are rough, such as the trunk of a tree or a brick wall (including the side of a house).”

 To overcome this creepy climbing capability, place a foot-wide ledge made of wood or metal at the top of your fence, along the outer side. “This structure makes the snakes lean out away from the wall and it will lose its grip and fall.”

 Take this one step further, AWR advised, and get rid of the rodents that snakes like to snack on. You may want to involve a pest control agent, but you definitely want to practice anti-rodent hygiene, including not leaving pet food out for more than an hour or so, closing trash cans tightly and securing compost in a sealed container.

4. Combat the climbers
If limbs from a neighbor’s yard hang over your fence, snakes may use them as an entry to your place. Consider working with your neighbor to get them trimmed.

 And if you live in an area where one or more venomous snakes are common, you may want to invest in a snake-proof fence. “Small areas where children play can be protected from all poisonous and most harmless snakes with a snake-proof fence,” NCSU noted. “However, the cost of the fence may make it impractical to protect an entire yard.”

 After all this snake talk, AWR does have one bit of great news. “Snakes are rarely abundant in any one location.” And if all your efforts fail and snakes do make their way into your yard, AWR recommended the ultimate fail safe. 

“The best thing you can do for yourself and family is to teach everyone to respect snakes and to be on the lookout for them,” according to the AWR website. “Remember, don’t touch it with your hands. Use a shovel to place the snake in a deep bucket with a cover. The chances of your encountering a venomous species is remote, but possible enough to always be careful.”


Bayshore Gardens Fl 

 Bayshore Gardens was built when Sarasota was expanding northward and Bradenton was starting to expand to the south. Bayshore Gardens history had started in 1955 when three real estate developers Gus BerneSidney Newman and Lawrence Morton when property was being bought up from property owners. The cost of it was about $150,000,00 to $200,000,000, one of the largest commercial development in Manatee County at the time. First, came the installation of a sewage system, a water plant, laying out of roads and a drainage system. The developers intended that there should be functional beauty and utility. The roads were designed to have gentle curves for authentic reasons and to prevent traffic issues. In 1959 the Sarasota Herald-Tribune
