Our Snake Treatment & Repellent Process

Snake repellent services from Smith’s Pest Management follow a simple three-step process:


After contacting us with a concern about snakes on your property, we’ll set a time to inspect your property. Your technician will inspect your property thoroughly for any indication of snake presence or conducive conditions that could lead them to your property, performing abatement treatments where necessary. 

We’ll then work with you to create a plan for snake exclusion as well as the habitat modification, harborage reduction, and food source reduction necessary to deter them from your property in the future. Finally, you’ll be provided with a thorough plan of how we can help manage and reduce snake presence around your property humanely throughout the year. 

In some cases, technicians may recommend snake repellent services after noticing signs of snake presence while inspecting your property for a different treatment. 


During treatment, your technician will set traps to humanely catch any snakes that might be on your property, and will remove any from the property that are locatable. They will then use minimal-risk products to repel snakes from entering your property in the future. We can also apply repellent that deters lizards. 

By irritating their olfactory system, our snake repellents create exclusion barriers around your home and in potential harborage areas on your property. We also use minimal risk products to reduce food sources for the snakes, namely other potential invasive pests such as small rodents, crawling insects, and lizards. 

After treatment, we can set up monitoring devices depending on your property’s unique needs.


Snake repellent services may require repeat treatments in certain circumstances. We offer year-round warranty options available for our snake programs. 

The best protection against snakes in your property can only be obtained with the help of a year-round pest control program. Luckily for Bay Area homes and businesses, year-round pest protection has never been easier with help from Smith’s Pest Management.
