Moth Balls: A Surprisingly Effective Snake Repellent


Moth balls are known primarily for their use in protecting clothes against moths, but did you know that they can also be a surprisingly effective snake repellent? These small, white balls may not look like much, but they have been used for many years to keep snakes at bay.

The reason why moth balls work as a snake repellent has to do with their smell. Moth balls are made from a chemical compound called naphthalene, which has a strong, distinctive odor. This odor is highly unpleasant to snakes (and most other animals), and they will usually avoid any area where moth balls have been placed.

To use moth balls as a snake repellent, you simply need to scatter them around the perimeter of your property or any area where you want to keep snakes away. You can also place them inside your home, particularly in areas where snakes might be likely to enter, such as gaps in walls or around pipes.

It is important to note that moth balls should not be used in areas where children or pets may come into contact with them, as they can be toxic if ingested. It is also important to use moth balls in moderation, as too many can actually be harmful to the environment and disrupt natural ecosystems.

While there are many commercial snake repellents available on the market, many of these products contain chemicals that can be harmful to the environment and to pets and wildlife. Using moth balls as a snake repellent is a simple, safe, and natural alternative that has been proven to be effective.

So, if you are looking for a way to keep snakes away from your property without using harmful chemicals, try moth balls. It may surprise you just how well this simple, inexpensive solution works!
