43. Gardening With What?

No matter where you live, you are likely to see a snake or two in your lifetime. The more you spend your time outdoor in the wonderful world of mother nature you will see more snakes. If you have a garden full of great plants, flowers and a pond, you may even see more snakes that a gardener who have bushes and shrubs through out their landscape. Even though I am a big Moose, I am frightful of snakes but I wanted to learn a little more about what they do for my environment and my garden, so I am here to share this little piece with you about snakes.

Snakes will hide and go for weeks without food. I learned that they often like to hide under my pile of potting soil and sand bags out behind the shed. They are only there because it is nice and cool there. They donít try and get in the bags, so I donít worry too much about them. If you are afraid of snake, just pick a corner of the bag up and look, they most likely will slither away before you even see them.

I am actually beginning to appreciate snakes in my garden because they eat mice, and I think mice are sometimes worse than snakes. Snakes keep the mice population under control and the snakes donít do much else.

Snakes move without arms and legs so it is safe to assume, that they keep to themselves mostly under things and underground (unless you live in the safari!). In the US there are only a limited number of poisonous snakes. I thought for sure that there had to be hundreds of poisonous snakes in the woods, but there are not many varieties here. The most well known poisonous snakes to be found are the rattlesnakes, the water moccasin, the copper head, and the coral snake. Besides these specifies (which are not found in every part of the US) the rest of the snakes to be found are rather harmless.

Most all of us have had an experience with a garter snake, but I learned that garter snakes are great because they eat mice, fish, worms, snails, insects, salamanders, tad poles, frogs, and other small water types creatures. So the garter snake keeps my lawn free of - or at least it controls these things. Garter snakes can grow up to four feet long.

There is another type of snake that is a real addition to any garden, it is found east of the Mississippi, and it eats rats, mice and other small rodents. This snake is called the rat snake, but I am a sure gardener in that area doesnít kill snakes so that the moles, mice, and the other little critters stay under control.

Even if you donít like snakes, you shouldnít worry much about having to kill them. If you are seeing many around your area that is because there is a large amount of food for them and they are going to Ďclean upí the area so to speak. When the amount of food decreases for these snakes you will see less of them around your garden and home.
