Clean the Garden
The most important thing that attracts the snakes is the bushes, rocks and the long grasses. So, you need to make sure that your garden does not have any of those. You can cut the bushes, trim the grasses and any rock should be removed. Snakes like cool places and often take shelter in such places.

It is therefore very necessary to keep a check on the rodents to get rid of the snakes.
It is very likely that the snakes that are found in your backwards would make their way to your house in search of food or cooler places. In order to stop that, you must close all the openings and the holes at your places. The attic holes, AC pipes, Chimney, pipe lines and others should be properly closed with nets so that the snakes do not find an entry to your house. It is not only the opening but also the windows and the doors that should be properly closed and monitored to avoid any snakes at your place. Snakes can walk into any place and pose a threat to your life and thus it is important that you ensure everything is sealed.
