How does Snake Away work?
Dr. T's uses knowledge of the snake's Jacobson's organ which controls a snake's sensory reception ability. As Dr. T's Snake Away Snake Repellent's active ingredient vaporizes, it is brought into the sensory receptor (Jacobson’s organ) of approaching snakes and creates an immediate interference. The result is that the snake’s sensory system temporarily closes down, confounding the snake and scaring it into hasty retreat. This effect is only temporary, and the snake’s sensory functions will return to normal after the snake has retreated far enough away from the treated area.

How to Apply Snake Away:
1. Using gloves, apply in bands surrounding the area to be protected.
2. Use bands 4-5 inches wide to repel checkered garter snakes.
3. For rattlesnakes, use bands 8-12 inches wide.
4. In yards, lightly sprinkle Snake-A-Way over areas within the treatment band.
5. When the odor of Snake Away becomes faint, its effectiveness may be diminished. If this occurs during a season when snakes are active, retreat the area with enough of the product to restore the original odor intensity.
6. Re-treatment may also be necessary after heavy rains.
7. Do not use this product near streams, ponds, pools, or water supplies. This product is toxic to fish and may contaminate water.
8. Apply Spring, Summer and Fall.

 

TESTING

 

Effectiveness test were conducted by Dr. Harvey Lillywhite, Professor of Reptology, University of Florida. Dr. Lillywhite is internationally recognized as one of the worlds leading research reptologists. Over ten years of independent research and follow-up tests were also conducted by Dr. T's Nature Products. Inc. The effectiveness of the repellent is demonstrated by the following experiments performed with various species and the product has been found to have a rate of efficacy that varies from 17% to 100% depending on the individual species.

87.5% Aakistrodon contortirix Copperhead
75% Coluber constrictor Black Racer
91% Crotalus adamanteus Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake
91% Crotalus atrox Western diamondback rattlesnake
91% Crotalus horridus Timber rattlesnake
91% Crotalus lepidus Rock rattlesnake
91% Crotalus ruber Red diamondback rattlesnake
91% Crotalus viridis Pacific rattlesnake
17% Elaphe guttata Corn or red rat snake
21% Aakistrdon platyrhinos Cotton mouth
47% Elaphe obsoleta Yellow rat snake
100% Heterodon platyrhinos Eastern hognose snake
100% Micrurus fulvius Eastern coral snake
50% Phython molorus Burmese python
100% Thamnophis marcianus Checkered garter snake

In as much as the normal behavior of snakes is to move slowly in a deliberate and investigatory manner, the experments were devised to test the snakes responses to the repellent in as near to normal conditions as possible. In use, the granular product is spread on the ground across an area where it is desired to prevent or discourage snakes from entering. Preferably, the granules should be spread in a strip 10-30 centimeters wide, although generally the wider the strip the better. In this manner, an odor barrier is provided that snakes are reluctant to cross. Additionally, a smaller amount of the product may be scattered in a diffuse or non-continous manner just beyond the strip, on the side away from the area to be protected. This added scattering of the repellent serves to lessen the probability of occasional snakes wandering beyond the strip.

After 2 months, a group of 16 snakes was again re-tested. In this test the branches of the Y were reversed, so that the repellent strip was at the branch opposite from that in the previous test. Moreover, the repellent used was five weeks old ( i.e., it had been on the ground outside, but protected from heavy rainfall). Test we conducted as described for the primary test above. Eleven snakes exhibited overt avoidance of the repellent, and four snakes crossed the repellent. Two of the snakes which crossed the repellent exhibited avoidance behavior first, eventually moving across the repellent strip while rubbing the head against the ground, seemingly attempting to escape from the repellent. Repelled snakes showed no hesitation to enter the opposite ( benign ) branch of the Y.

CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION

The principal conclusions from this study are as follows. (1) SNAKE-A-WAY repels snakes. (2) The efficacy of the repellent varies with taxon: some species are repelled with remarkable effectiveness, while other are not. How ever all species tested exhibit some degree of behavioral avoidance of the repellent. (3) There are circumstances in which individual snakes of all species tested will cross a strip of repellent, so the product cannot be regarded as an absolute barrier to these reptiles. Such situations are expected to be rare in natural environments, however, and (4) Use of the product can be expected to reduce significantly the occurrence of snakes within areas that are to be 'protected" by recommended use of the product. Typical behavior involved jerking the head away from the repellent after approaching it with the tongue flicks, then crawling away, often rubbing the sides of the head along the ground for a brief period. In one case the body of the snake started writhing after contacting the strip of repellent.

These behaviors were common and receptable, and they occured in some individuals as they approached the repellent from distances of 10-15 cm. Four snakes were re-tested two consecutive times, and all repeatedly avoided the repellent. In cases where snakes exhibited avoidance behaviors but nonetheless crossed the repellent strip. In various ways, it seems likely that a diffuse scattering of SNAKE-A-WAY pellets over the area beyond the strip would have caused the snake to eventually leave the area. Such procedure might also enhance the effectiveness of the product on substrates that are coarse-grained or uneven. Considering all the data, the fundemental conclusions regarding efficacy remanin the same. SNAKE-A-WAY should significantly decrease occurances.

Copperheads were strongly repelled by SNAKE-A-WAY, while the related cottonmouths were not. This result is interesting insofar as cottonmouths inhabit swamps and readily feed on carrion. It is possible that the sulforous smell of the repellent is normally encountered by the latter species, either in parts of the natural habitat or during carrion feeding, or both.

    5 of 5 Stars  What I don't See Won't Hurt Me or Make Me Pass Out
    By Hates on May 14, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    Am giving 5 stars...the odor of this is powerful. I put it outside the cedar privacy fence in hot dry TX. I have water on my grass/flowers/garden. I don't want to see a snake...the bag says if you still smell the product, its working. Since I flood-irrigate the trees inside the fence and 1 big tree outside the fence, I figured all that water would bring in the snakes (new development.) I put this stuff down. Its still very pungent smelling and I haven't seen a snake. (I know they are out there, the construction workers have seen them.) I bought 2 bags at once and only put down one bag. The other bag is for when I don't smell it anymore. why take chances! I feel like I can safely walk out the back fence without being surprised...for a little while anyways!

    By J. on May 22, 2013

    I have had snake away on my lawn only 1 month. I encountered l copperhead before applied, and it was very active and tried to get away. After snake away was applied we have encountered 4 more copperheads. They reacted as the product said they would. They all 4 froze in place, we had plenty of time to kill them and they were no threat.

February 24, 2012Ju from Fl asked:

QWill Snake Away repel common FL lizards (gecko, anoles, skinks)?

ASnake Away is not labeled for lizards of any kind and has not been tested on them so we do not know if it will work for this type of application. The only surefire way to cut down on the lizards population in a given place is Outdoor habitat modification. In short get rid of the reasons lizards are there in the first place. They are there because they are finding the food they need to survive (insects) and a place to harbor. If you can eliminate either of these essentials, you can get rid of the lizards. Spray a good residual insecticide such as Cyper WP around the outside of your home to help cut down on the number of insects the lizards are eating. If lizards cannot find enough food they will either move on or starve. Eliminate as much clutter and debris around the outside of your home as possible to eliminate the places lizards like to hide. Rake back mulch or rocks at least 6 inches from the structure

QCan I use this in areas where dogs and children play?

AMost pets would be repelled by Snake Away  in addition to snakes.  That being said, it can be harmful to pets if consumed.  You should do what you can to keep children and pets away as much as possible from the product.

QIs Snake Away safe to use near vegetable gardens & Plants?
Behind my subdivision home is a green area between two major subdivisions having an large deep trench for flood control and a portions aways has water. I am told that all kinds of snakes come into the yards that back up the this area. I am scared to death of snakes but don't have anything else against them. If I put Snake away near the back of my fence opposite of my yard, is the produce safe which would be near my vegetable garden and plants?

ASnake away is not labeled to be used in or around edible gardens. For more insight and advise on this issue in your specific area please contace your Local Extension Office.

May 28, 2013Graham from Aurora, Co asked:

QSnakes under bay window
I have some snakes under my bay window. Will snake away get them out from under the bay window?

AThe Snake Away is a repellant but unless you can get the snake away behind where they are currently under the window, it will not get them out. If you were to put it around the bay window with them still underneath, you will in fact have trapped them there. You could try putting the snake away on 2 sides of the window, leaving one area open for them to try and escape from the repellant. You also may have to resort to using a trap like the Snake Guard or Snake Tongs to pull the snake from the area to release elsewhere.
