Snake Control Mesh
Snake-proof fences may be of some value if the area to be protected is relatively small. The fence should be made with heavy, 36 inch wide galvanized screen with 1/4-inch wire mesh. The lower edge buried at least 6 inches in the ground. Slant the fence outward from the base at a 30-degree angle using supporting stakes inside the fence. Tall vegetation around the fence should be cut to prevent snakes from climbing over the fence. Since the construction of a snake-proof fence may be costly, this method is normally practical only in small areas. Before using any snake control measures or relocating captured snakes to another area, contact local representatives of the Fish and Game or Animal Control.
