There is a lot of debate on whether or not snakes hate garlic. Some say that snakes are repelled by the smell of garlic while others claim that snakes are actually attracted to the scent. There is no concrete evidence to support either claim. However there are a few things that we do know about snakes and garlic.
For starters snakes are attracted to the smell of rodents. Garlic just happens to be a strong-smelling herb that can mask the smell of rodents. This is why some people say that snakes are attracted to the scent of garlic.
On the other hand snakes are also repelled by strong smells. This is why many people claim that snakes hate the smell of garlic. The strong smell of garlic can actually overwhelm a snake’s senses making it difficult for them to find their prey.
So what do we know for sure? Unfortunately not much. The jury is still out on whether or not snakes hate garlic. However it is safe to say that garlic can be used as a tool to either attract or repel snakes depending on your desired outcome.
