I Must Garden All Natural Snake Repellent repels snakes from your yard by interfering with the snake’s senses. Snakes gather information about their surroundings by collecting particles on their tongues and then passing their tongues over a sensory organ inside of their mouth (called the Jacobson’s Organ). The ingredients in this repellent disrupt this organ causing discomfort and confusion. The snake then avoids that area because it is highly unpleasant to them.
All Natural Snake Repellent doesn’t contain harmful chemicals so you can use it around your pets and family without the worry of pesticides or Naphthalene, which is found in many other snake repellents. (Did you know that Naphthalene, found in moth balls, is classified as a possible carcinogen?)
The all-natural ingredients will not harm plants or turf and it is safe for the environment. It is an effective and long lasting treatment for all landscaped areas, and as an added bonus, it does not have an unpleasant scent to keep you from enjoying your own garden.
For the best results apply All Natural Snake Repellent on a dry day. Sprinkle an 8-inch wide band around the area to be protected and broadcast interior areas with the repellent at a rate of 1 pound to an 8 by 8 foot area, distributing the additional repellent as evenly as you can.
Look for areas where snakes are present like rocks, boards, flagstones, even cracks and fissures in foundations and crawl spaces. You can even create a perimeter barrier by sprinkling a band around your entire property, buildings, or landscaped garden areas. Monitor the treated areas and reapply as needed.
To maintain protection, broadcast at the rate of 1lb to 100 square feet every two to three weeks. Additional applications may be necessary depending upon the frequency of snakes. The formula remains effective through average periods of rainfall.
