How To Prevent Snakes From Entering Your Toilet Bowl

All over the world, rats go down in sewers and the snakes go in there after them. And from there they can find your bathroom.
There’s only a small amount of water in the bottom of your toilet bowl. They come up through a dry pipe and there’s a small bit of water in the S-bend –  all the snake has to do is to go down an inch-and-a-half or two inches and straight back up, so its quite easy once they learn how to do it.
Even if you live in a place where snakes are rare, there are always rats to consider. Because as mentioned earlier, rats can be found in sewers around the world, and just like that python, can find their way into your bathroom through the pipes.

If this is the case, how then can you protect yourself?

Since you cannot control what gets into the sewers, you simply do that which is within your control. Keep your toilet seats down when not in use, and before using the bathroom, check to be sure you have no visitor waiting for you in the bowl!
Keeping the seat down prevents whatever animal from slithering up the bowl, and into your home. And for boys who are fond of leaving the seat up after use, this is an additional incentive to listen to your mom and sisters to “always keep the seat down!”

Salt solution

Get handful of salt,pour inside the toilet bowl, reptiles don't like it.

Ginger and Garlic

Blend Ginger and Garlic, pour it inside the bowl, always cover the toilet seat.


Pour kerosine into your toilet bowl, it prevents reptiles a lot.

It's going to be a great advantage if your floors are all tiled. Snakes can't have it way on tiles, so it won't stay in your home.

Stop food supply.

Snakes feeds on rats so make sure you get rid of rats in your homes. 

Seal every opening

Check out for holes on your homes. It may be cause by rats but make sure you seal them so avoid snake a home.

Conclusively, always check your toilet bowl before you seat on it.
