Best Snake Repellents

7 minutes to read | Updated for 2018

Venomous snakes that can be found in several regions around the United States include rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, water moccasins, copperheads, and coral snakes. These snakes can be dangerous to outdoor workers such as painters, farmers, gardener, and construction workers. In heavily-infested snake regions, they are also a risk to hikers and even around homes.

Although rare, some people with a severe allergy to snake venom are at a lethal risk if bitten. It’s estimated that around 7,000 to 8,000 people year receive venomous bites in the United States every year, and approximately five of those people die. The number of deaths would be far higher if those bitten did not seek immediate medical care. So, we’ve hand-selected our favorite snake deterrents to keep them off your property without the issue of handling poisons or traps.
