I'm clearing some land to put a house or mobile home on. I'm positive there will be plenty of snakes this summer. It is mountainous and rocky. Any ideas that work to help eradicate as many as possible of them? I know there are also coons and coyotes but I'm pretty sure I could see them coming. I have heard non venomous keep the venomous away - if that's the case couldn't I just set a bunch of rat snakes loose to kill the copper heads, and so on? But then there would still be the snake problem. I've heard guineas will help but what will keep the coons and dogs from getting them? Please help????
