I used it, but in the pellet form as that's all the store had and it worked wonders! I had seen a couple of snakes over the years of my former residence, after I put out the lime around the perimeter of my yard. No more snakes. I did this every year for 3 of the four I lived there. Also moth balls scattered around your yard work too for snakes, place them around the footing of your house and under to keep bugs from getting in your home.
If you have children or pets I would ask experts if and how about using and using safely.
Also, do not use mothballs! They are highly toxic to living beings (even to breathe the fumes emanated from them) and also to all aspects of the environment!
NO.. I had a Rattle snake curl up around a whole box of moth Balls.. So no it does not work..
Moth balls do not work. Maybe for some but not all. I watched a snake go right by moth balls not 2 inches away.
NO it does not. youtu.be/
It's an old wives tale. It doesn't bother them. Moth balls do not work either. And it is illegal to use mothballs in this way. They are tasty to other animals and kids.
There is no natural snake deterrent other than removing food, water and shelter.
So please all you who answer please do not give false information.

Will regular garden lime spread around the perimeter of my yard keep snakes out? Will it be harmful to my dogs?
