I saw today on Billy the exterminator,,, he used a pump spray that was basically garlic water and sprayed the primitor of the yard and said it needs to be done once a month,,, keeps them away. I looked it up on the internet and you can easily make it yourself. We had a cotton mouth a couple years ago that kept making its way under our house,,, right by the front door,,, was scary coming home at night after being at a party.

I know you said you dont wanna play with them but a cool thing you can do with pygmy's is take a stick of pvc pipe and cap one end, hold the other end to where it touches the ground in front of the snake, it will crawl into the pipe 9 times out of 10. I do recommend keeping a solid plan B close by just in case the little guy takes offense to your wizardy. Try it out at your own risk! its never not worked for me!

If you can find a few Eastern Kingsnakes they'll take care of that problem quickly.

Duff has it but I have seen only a couple or so kingsnakes in the wild in my lifetime. I don't know how to target them since they are non venomous and no harm to the dogs I never seriously studied them...

Contact your fire department and do a controlled burn. That would clear up the property of pine straw, rodents (food for snakes) and snakes.

The best thing I have found to keep snakes away is keep the ground clean. Brush, pine straw, leaves, mulch, woodpiles, un-mowed lawn, etc. all give them a good place to hide as well as a place for their food source to hide and nest. They don't like even crossing an open place with short grass. It makes them a target for hawks and owls and they know it.

How about this snake? I caught this in my parents yard last week so it wouldn't get their dogs. This sucker was mean! I have caught many snakes of various sizes, and have a pet snake, but haven't ever encountered one this aggressive.

Here is a corn snake that was trapped under my garage door overnight I was shocked how calm he was. He let me pick him up and photo him. I figured he'd be a little more pissed but he wasn't.
