Short-story: I will be involved in testing a new brand of snake "repellent" (both liquid and granular) in the next few days. Does anyone have information or previous, similar experimentation that could help in my creating a series of worthwhile tests? How about just some suggestions, general advice, or scenarios?

Also, you should know that I am not being paid by the company for positive results. Either way will be valuable to me, if nothing else just to say it was done.

Thanks.

Check Youtube, there are several videos on repellents. I don't think snake repellents are very effective.

"It is generally accepted world-wide that there is no substance that effectively repels snakes – a real pity as we work with corporate clients throughout Africa where snakes are a real menace and a simple process of spraying something to keep them away could make like much easier. Various snake repellents have been tested in various countries and to date no effective repellent has been found."

I bought some snake repellent granules to sprinkle around the house to keep them out, but then got concerned if I was in fact keeping them in rather than out. [emoticon]
one I found to spray on ground/grass evidently was hot/painful on their little tummies and PETA would complain.

Multiple reasons I would guess but I would say the #1 would be because this group spends a lot of time outdoors and may run into snakes more frequently than other groups.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
