Repel Snakes with Mothballs and Cat Litter

Got snake problems? Mothballs are a natural snake repellent! Grab some cat litter and mothballs and mix them together before heading back to your slip. You can sprinkle the mixture around the perimeter of your slip, or keep the mixture in a closed container and leave it inside your docko for two days.


This technique works due to the naphthalene ingredient the mothballs contain. In fact, this ingredient is frequently used in many commercial remedies. It irritates the creatures’ chemical receptors.

Moth balls can also be hazardous to pets and domestic animals. While using, keep them away from children. Also, remember to wear gloves and a respiratory mask when making your mothball and cat-litter mixture.

This Week’s Improvements

The Breakwater project is moving along well – this $1.5 million project is approximately 20% complete! Protecting your boats is important to us, so for those of you who are at Highport this week, please be on the lookout for the breakwater crew and their continued progress at the entrance to the harbor. Please be extra careful when entering and exiting the harbor while the installation continues.


Remember, we are still hiring for both full-time and part-time positions. Bring your resume to 120 Texoma Harbor Dr. Pottsboro, TX 75076 or apply online.
