Any of you who have a few tires in a stack or a pile, have you ever seen snakes among them? The reason I ask, I ended up with several old tires, and they have come in handy, especially for making a level surface on a hillside. If I stack 3 or 4 and slide tires 2,3 and 4 off a bit of center, the top one becomes level for a large water container or table top. I use them to hold big gates in place during windstorms, and they are easy to lift and move. So while they aren't my favorite substance, at least they are helping me and they won't go into a landfill while I'm around. And I have never seen anything on them or make a nest in them, not mice or rats or lizards or hornets, nothing. Which probably speaks to how awful they are, but I was thinking that a way to keep snakes out of a wood pile would be to use the tires to hold the pile up off the ground, and support the wood, and when a snake approaches it, he keeps running into a tire, so maybe they won't hang around it. anyone have experience with this?
