Can anyone suggest a way to repel snakes? I've heard that granular sulfur works and that it does not work, but that commercially sold SnakeAway does work. It's rather expensive though, so I'm hoping someone will know (from experience) an effective way repel snakes.

A couple of things. use moth balls and cheap kitty litter and surround the perimeter in which you want to keep the snakes out. This sounds weird but it really does work. also, snakes do not like the white rock like you see in some power plant sub stations. we had one on our land so it was easy to access the rocks. But, best bet on the moth balls and kitty litter. Good luck.

I am not familiar with diatomaceous earth. However, after research on the internet about how to keep snakes from nesting in the crevice between my homes foundation and the sidewalk, I learned that snakes do not like strong, offensive odors. Moths balls have worked for me. Also, I purchased a spray repellent that smelled like capsazin. So now I use linament cream instead as its less expensive.
