Plants That Repel Snakes?

Answer

There are a few different plants that can help repel snakes, though none of them are deemed as being perfect, or guaranteed. One of the main plants that snakes seem to have a problem with, is mint. This is a plant that may not only smell good to you, but can also help to keep snakes away. Moth balls are also good for keeping snakes away, and some people say that kerosene, lightly squirted around a perimeter, can help keep snakes away.
