Snake Out Snake Repellent

Bug Lady posted this on Aug 10, 2016

Snakes are one of the top phobias, going back thousands of years. In fact, they are one of the most feared pests in the world. You can use Snake Out® to help repel snakes so you won’t have to worry about using harsh materials that could harm your family, pets and property.

Of the 2,700 snake species in the world, 250 species can be found in the United States. Each year in the U.S. alone, there are approximately 45,000 victims of snake bites, including non-venomous bites. Of that number, about 8,000 are venomous snake bites, and 10–15 people die each year.


Now Pest Management Professionals can use Snake Out® Snake Repellent, a specially formulated dust, to help keep snakes away, plus homeowners don’t have to worry about using harsh materials that could harm their families, pets and property. You and I may like the smell of pumpkin pies, but snakes don’t. Using active ingredients like natural cinnamon and clove oils, Snake Out® actually repels snakes.



 Snake Out® can be used anywhere you don’t want snakes to be or anyplace snakes are a problem.
 You can apply it around homes, yards, landscaping, gardens, foundations, barns & outbuildings, garages, woodpiles, sheds, campsites—anyplace where snakes may be a problem.
 Snake Out® comes in an easy-to-apply patented Comfort Grip® container.

Snake Out® doesn’t harm snakes; instead, it actually repels them—naturally.
Snake Out® contains a unique blend of natural ingredients that snakes find very unpleasant.
Snakes “taste” the surrounding air, and the special blend of ingredients in Snake Out® is especially unpleasant to them.
When snakes come into contact with Snake Out® in the air, an escape/avoidance reaction is triggered so the snakes are actually repelled away from the product.
Inspection – the first step

If the snake is inside:

The snake is there for a reason, food, water, too hot, too cold, too dry.
Food is most important. Inspect for signs of rodents, the snake may be following food into the structure.
Inspect for entry points into the structure; holes in foundations, missing vents, etc.

If the snake is outside in the yard:

It probably is just passing through.
What shape are the grounds in?
The PMP should look for excessive vegetation harborage.
The PMP will also look at surrounding areas, neighbors’ yards and so forth to see if nearby areas are good hiding places for snakes.
Sanitation: You can help create an unwelcome environment for snakes

Clean up yard area to remove hiding places.
Remove high weeds.
Move wood piles off of ground.
Trim shrubs and other large plantings away from the foundations of your home.
Remove any unnecessary debris from your yard that may provide harborage.


Exclusion:  Your PMP can make repairs to prevent snakes from entering the home.

Seal holes in foundations.
Caulk cracks.
Repair or replace broken vent plates.
Repair doors, flashing in crawlspace or basement doors.
Repair or seal any location it appears a snake came enter the structure.

Remove food and water sources
Repair any water leaks in the crawlspace or around the foundation. 

You should eliminate any rodent populations in or around the structure to remove any food problems.
You will apply a barrier of Snake Out at least a foot wide on the inside crawlspace foundation walls and into cracks, holes and entry points into the structure.

How is Snake Out “green”?


Snake Out’s® active ingredients include natural substances like cinnamon and clove oil that snakes dislike very much and want to stay away from. It does NOT contain naphthalene (the primary ingredient in mothballs). Among other effects, exposure to large amounts of naphthalene may damage or destroy red blood cells and cause anemia, and it is possibly a carcinogenic material.
Snake Out® is biodegradable. It will not harm lawns, gardens, flowerbeds or other desirable plants when used as directed.
Snake Out® can be used in areas where children and pets play.
