How To Discourage Snakes
From Your Property
Prevention is always the easiest course of action! Here are some tips to discourage snakes from your property:
Keep your yard clean
Snakes love hiding in tall grass, piles of leaves, and stacked firewood. Regularly mowing your lawn and keeping your yard tidy can deter snakes.
Seal entry points
Snakes can squeeze through small gaps and cracks. Make sure to seal any potential entry points around your house.
Snakes are attracted to places with a constant water supply. Try not to overwater your garden or leave standing water around your property.

Understanding the snake species in your area can help in identifying potential threats. Some common snakes in Cape Town include the Cape Cobra, Puff Adder, Boomslang, and Brown House Snake.
