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-A-Way 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-A-Way:

  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 A way 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.
