1. Learn more about the snakes in your area. Certain snakes are indigenous to certain regions, and some are more dangerous than others. Garter snakes can actually be helpful to a garden and tend to stay away from people. Other snakes, like rattlesnakes, are more dangerous and are best to keep out of the yard. Knowing the sort of snakes you are likely to find can help ease your anxieties about the necessity of keeping snakes away or may make you more aware of how important the action is.
  • Moreover, while snake behavior is generally the same across the board, some preferred hiding spots and food sources do vary slightly from species to species. Knowing which types of snakes to focus your efforts on will help you to focus your snake repelling efforts more effectively.
2. Keep your yard free of clutter.[1] Clutter is essentially an open invitation to snakes because it provides a warm, dark place for them to hide. Piles of leaves, compost piles, straw mulch, wood chip mulch, stacks of firewood, and piles of cut grass are all comfortable places that snakes like to hide in, so these should be removed from your yard.
3. Avoid tall-growing plants. Just like clutter, certain shrubs and other plants provide the perfect hiding spot for a neighborhood snake. Keeping your grass mowed is a good way to prevent snakes from slithering around your yard. Shrubs and packed gardens with thick plants will also attract snakes. If you are very concerned about a potential snake problem, remove or thin these plants out. If you want to keep these plants, however, consider transplanting them to the far side of your yard, away from the foundation of your house. How to Keep Snakes Away

6 week old babies don't really eat food, you should really be feeding natural milk direct from the babies mother, if you are unable or do not want to feed from the mother there are many baby specific milks on sale. Note that some babies will not take some of these so you may have to swap until you get the 1 that is liked. Hope this helps
