    Q
    When you apply Snake A Way, will the snake come out?
    A

    Per the product label, Do not use Snake A Way at sites where snakes are believed to be already present as the deterrent effects of the product might tend to confine snakes to the treated areas. Depending on where the snake is located, you can apply a band of granules making sure to leave a wide enough opening for the snake to leave. For example, you would only treat 3 sides of the lawn or garden area to allow a wide enough space for the snake to leave.

    Q
    Will Snake Away get a snake out of the inside of my car?
    A

    Neither Snake Away nor any other snake repellent should be used inside your car for any reason. If you suspect a snake is in your car you will need to use glue boards in your car along floor boards and under seats so that as it crawls around it gets stuck on the glueboard. Once stuck, you can either use olive oil or vegetable oil to rub on the snakes body to release it, or dispose of it any other way you deem necessary.

  • Asked by Debbie from Statesville

    Q
    Will Snake A Way 4 lbs. work with black snakes?
    A

    According to the manufacturer Snake A Way 4 lbs. works for the majority of snake species due to how it repels them. Snakes have what is called a Jacobson’s organ, which is a patch of sensory cells within the main nasal chamber that detects heavy moisture-borne odor particles. The smell of the ingredients in this product effect that organ causing snakes to become disoriented and go away from the smell. When using this product it is very important to remember to NOT apply products where snakes are currently to prevent any potential harm. This product should be applied in areas where snakes have been previously or areas you want to keep them out of.

    Q
    Can I put Snake A Way in my crawl space?
    A

    Snake A Way is meant for use outside around the home, since the snakes natural environment is outside. The formula repels rodents through a naturally powerful sensory overload so it has a very strong odor. For control of snakes indoors we would recommend the Cahaba Snake Trap.

    Q
    Snakes under bay window
    I have some snakes under my bay window. Will snake away get them out from under the bay window?
    A
    The 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.
