Not good for rainy weather
By Jb in Colorado Springs, CO on 07/08/2010
While I believe the trap could work in theory it is not a good one for a rainy climate. There was a brief rain shower the afternoon I put it outside in the target area. The top of the trap got soggy and collapsed onto the glue part. This effectively ruined the trap. Perhaps if you made it out of a wax cardboard to repel the rain or made 2 different ones. This one for indoor use and a "hardier" one for outdoor use.

Product arrived the day after placing the order! Great service. Very easy to set up! We had a snake in the attic of our home, placed the "Snake Guard" in place the day they arrived and BAM the very next day caught the snake in the trap!! NO MESS, NO FUSS, easy disposal. Great great product and great company to do business with!

Snake Guard Snake Trap
By Todd in Bonita Springs, FL on 12/08/2010
It has a major flaw--being cardboard means that after one or two rains, it is totally worthless. I was very disappointed and threw it out after less than one week.

It worked the very first night.
By Clell in Bee Branch, AR on 09/09/2013
I had been trying to kill a copperhead snake which lived in a hole underneath my tractor shed for over a month. Each time he saw me approaching he would go back down the hole. Well, I ordered one of the Snake Guard Snake Traps and placed it right by the hole. The very next morning I found half of that copperhead hanging out of the box, it had trapped him just like the ad said. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Snake Guard trap
By Ed in Lower Burrell, PA on 09/29/2010
Received the the snake guard trap in the mail and set it in place. Have a snake somewhere in basement of my rental. Purchased a mouse, put him in a bucket with grass and leaves for a week to get his scent over it, placed it near the snake guard to lure him out. Now it's just a waiting game until that rascle comes out and gets caught. We'll see.

Snake Guard Snake Trap
By L in Glen Burnie, MD on 09/28/2013
We had a snake in our basement, I bought the trap, and 8 days later I found the snake fighting to get the glue strip off. Might have been better if the glue was directly on the box instead of glue strips, because the snake pulled out of the box with the srtip stuck to it. But it did make the snake easier to catch and get it out of the house. Thank you Snake Guard!

Snake Guard Snake trap
By David in Slidell, La on 06/23/2012
Box collapsed, needs better support to keep from folding up. Appears to have had a snake got on one edge and was able to back out.

Just caught my first Snake
By in Lexington NC on 07/18/2013
It took 2 weeks to get him but it works. We have had rain almost everyday and it held up. I just put it near an outside wall and tossed a little pine needles over it.
By Sam in North Carolina on 08/03/2016
I have had this product out for about 2 weeks and it hasn't trapped a snake yet. They are in my workshop and have actually hissed at me when I came too close to them. I will give it 30 days more. If it doesn't work, I will have to call a specialists.
Snake Guard Snake Trap -
By Julia in Cowpens, South Carolina on 09/16/2016
so far a 0 set it up Sept. 07, 2016 and as of today, Septl 16, 2016 the trap is still empty It was easy to set up and is a catch and release trap - funny to think that I would rub the snake down with vegetable oil if all the glue is gone :) Haven't given up but it is not easy going in my basement and looking around when I realize it is not in the trap!!!!
We apologize you have not received the expected results! In this case the placement and position of the trap are very important since there are no attractants in the trap. Traps need to be placed up again and parallel to vertical surfaces and should be placed near windows, doors or other areas where snakes can enter or exit. Can you tell us where your trap was placed? Have you seen activity after the trap was placed? Please let us know. We look forward to assisting you!

Ask a Question
QHow big of a snake will the Snake Guard Snake Trap catch?
AThe Snake Guard Snake Trap can trap very large and very small snakes. There are strips of very sticky adhesive inside the trap and once the snake slithers in it's head will become trapped even if it's body cannot fit inside.
QCan Snake Guard Snake Trap be used more than once?
AThe Snake Guard Snake Trap can be used more than once, but it all depends on how much of the "sticky glue" is left after the snake has gotten stuck. Most people do not want to handle the snake, so they just throw the whole board out with the snake inside. If you don't mind handling the snake, you can use vegetable oil to get the snake off of the board where it is stuck. If there is still enough sticky parts on the board, then it can be used again.
QWill the Snake Guard Snake Trap work in dark areas?
I have a snake that has somehow gotten into the crawl space beneath my home. The area is enclosed and dark all of the time. Will the trap work in this space. The instructions say that the snake will seek the dark space of the trap.
ASnake Guard Snake Traps do offer a snake a dark area, but that is not the only reason they would enter the trap. Snakes also like small confined areas to hide and this trap would also offer them that. You should also place the trap directly in their travel path, so they naturally slither right into it. Place traps right up against and parallel to the wall near doors, vents, windows or other suspected entry/exit point.
QHow long does the Snake Guard Snake Trap work before the glue is ineffective?
AThe glue on the Snake Guard Snake Trap will work for as long as it remains sticky. High temperatures can melt the glue or freezing teperatures can make the glue too stiff and it will be ineffective. Dust and other debris that gets on the glue can also render it ineffective.
QDoes the Snake Guard Snake Trap have something on it that attracts the snake or not?
A No, the Snake Guard Snake Trap does not contain an attractant. Snakes naturally want to enter dark confined areas and will readily go into the trap. Be sure that the traps are placed into the snakes travel path (parallel and directly against walls, on ledges, near doors or windows)

QHow will I know when a snake has been trapped on a Snake Guard Glue Board? Also, will it trap a 4 ft. snake?
A The Snake Guard Snake Trap will trap a 4 foot long snake with no problem. The only way to know if a snake has been caught is to look inside the trap. The snake will get stuck on the glue inside the box and you can dispose of the whole trap with the snake inside or you can choose to release the snake by applying copious amounts of vegetable oil to the trap and the snake until it is freed from the glue.

QHow to get rid of possibly a very large snake in attic?
Cleaning out an attic and found about 5ft skin from a snake, dead mice in traps (from the pest service I did have) Now I'm scared of coming across a very large snake in my attic. What is the best way to approach this? Kind of irritated I'm been spending 400.00/year on pest control and they didn't take care of my problem in the attic.
AWe do offer the Hi Yield Snake Repellent that can be broadcast around the structure to keep them from entering the home. Please leave an area free of the repellent so if there are snakes inside the opportunity to freely exit the structure. For control of snakes indoors we would recommend Snake Guard Snake Traps. The Snake Guard Glue Board is a giant covered glue board trap measuring 23"L x 12"W x 2.5"H. With the Snake trap you can safely and effectively remove small or large snakes from within homes and other structures. The sticky glue incapacitates even large snakes, allowing for live capture, safe removal and live release at an appropriate location
