Bonide SNAKE STOPPER uses a special combination of natural ingredients to safely and effectively repel snakes, lizards, and iguanas without harm. The clove oil, cedar oil, cinnamon oil and sulfur blended in Bonide SNAKE STOPPER triggers a powerful response in snakes that makes them want to avoid and escape from the treated area. Snakes use the Jacobson's organ to taste the air around them and they find that Bonide SNAKE STOPPER is extremely unpleasant. Use Bonide SNAKE STOPPER on your decks, patios, gardens, yards, sheds, campsites and other outdoor areas where you want to keep snakes away. Completely safe for children and pets.

Yes, when used as directed on label (Will not harm people, pets or wildlife)
I purchased 2 Containers of The product, expecting it to work on keeping both snakes and Lizards away. Yes I was aware that it would not kill any - as both these "Animals" are useful. But I didn't expect to see more of either animals around the perimeter that the powder was applied to. It's not even rated as a ONE star. It's a ZERO Rating.
What if snakes are already in an area and I spray the perimeter. Will they cross the barrier to leave?
If snakes are already in an area you cannot put up a perimeter treatment as this will trap them in. The best way to approach this scenario is by treating 2-3 sides of the area that the snakes are in to try and push them out of the area and allow them one section of untreated perimeter to cross back over through. Once the snakes are out of the yard you can then set up the full perimeter with the Snake Stopper.
