I was wondering if anyone else has issues with snakes getting to their eggs? And if so, how do you deal with the pests? Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

Many people have had success "trapping" them in bird netting.

You roll it in a loose coil and lay it around the perimeter of your nest area and the snakes will get tangled in it when they try to crawl through.

Make sure you know which snakes in your area are venomous since it only traps them but won't kill them.

There are no "repellents" that actually work.

Ummm.. We don't have snakes here.... However...
I have heard of people putting wooden eggs or golf balls in nests..
And finding the snake stuck in chicken wire somewhere.
