    We have lots of bull snakes they are constrictors and pretty big but the are only here for the gophers. snakes follow food sources, eliminate food source and snakes will leave... also keep property clear grass short take down shrubs get rid of wood piles large rocks etc... we fight snakes daily because our gopher population is so resilient.

    We have voles ... so we have snakes. Anyone have advice on getting rid of voles without putting out poison? Our neighbor's cat is always hunting them, too, and as much as I dislike letting cats roam free near a busy road, this kitty is a sweetheart. I don't want to hurt him ... or break the hearts of his doting young owners.

    Smoke the holes sometimes it takes a few times of smoking active holes but it helps
