if you smell moth balls does it signal a snake being in the area with you?

    I have not heard of a connection between the smell of moth balls and a snake. I have studied snakes for a long time and in general they do not have an odor, unless they have recently been disturbed and released a defense musk (kind of like a skunk may do when disturbed). Snakes are generally quiet and do not let you know that they are in the area unless you startle them or disturb them.

    I believe it is just a myth or old wives’ tale about a connection between moth balls and snakes.
