Cedar Mulch and Snakes
Does anyone know if cedar mulch will repell snakes? We seem to have snakes all over the place this year and yesterday I found a coral snake in our back yard. Fortunately, I evidently had run over it with the lawn mower the day before because it had been cut in two and was dead. A herpetologist tells me that they feed on brown snakes and other small reptiles. The non-venomous snakes don't both me but they will evidently attract the venemous ones. I've read that snakes don't like cedar. We live in Sienna Plantation in Ft. Bend Country and I've been told that there are a lot of coral snakes being reported around the Missouri City area this year. Our first encounter was a small reddish-brown snake that decided he liked our front porch area. I can live with that but had just as soon not have coral snakes around since we have dogs and cats.
