Five ways that will help to keep away snakes from the toilets
1. Eliminate snake food sources
Home Guru recommends that eliminating snake food sources is the easiest way to prevent the reptile from coming close to your toilets. Given that snakes feed on smaller animals like rats, lizards and gecko, it is important you first lock these ‘snake foods’ out by cleaning the house from cluttered areas, removing wastes and making it free from musty smell.
2. Install sieve along the sewer
Installing sieve along the sewer in the restroom will keep snakes away from gaining entry to your toilet. In taking an extra effort, you can get a technician to install a snake grill or a net large enough to prevent snakes from crawling up the water route that is an exit to the drain.
3. Snake prevention box
Thanks to technology, there now exists an innovation called snake prevention box. Home Guru explains that the snake prevention box is made of dacrotized coated steel that makes it durable to use and prevent snake from entering the toilet. Apart from the use of a snake prevention box, installing anti-snake pipe or toilet cover will also do the trick.
4. Use of household items
If you can’t get your hands on the snake prevention box or anti-snake pipe, there are available household items that can keep snakes away. Items like caustic soda or a sniper when poured into the toilets will prevent snakes from entering your toilets. Other usable household items include engine oil, sulfur powder and kerosene mixed with water.
5. Do a regular check of your house and immediate surrounding
It is advisable to do a regular check of your house and immediate surrounding for holes especially areas around the drainage pipes. Any identified risk or hole spotted should be fixed immediately.
