Questions & Answers


What about when it rains do you have to keep replying it.

Asked by An October 12, 2020

We apply the product around the perimeter of our yard about once a month. It doesn't seem to be bothered by light rain but we re-apply it after a heavy rain because it is granules and they can be washed away by heavy rain.

If i use this on the snakes entrance to under my house while its under there will it come out?

Asked by Gma August 8, 2019

Probably not, it will probably keep the snake in. It would be best used prior to snakes coming into an area to keep them out of that area.

Do you apply this around the House? Or How do you use it

Asked by Stueve4 May 31, 2019

We spread the granules along our entire fence line in our yard.

Can u use it in basements?

Asked by Eric August 18, 2018

Ortho Snake B Gon Granules is intended for outdoor use, only, Eric.

Is it safe for dogs?

Asked by Thomas August 11, 2018

Yes...that's the only reason that I purchased it.

Does it work immediately?

Asked by Schefstad May 4, 2018

I have used it for the past 2 years and have had no rattlesnakes on the property. However, rattlesnakes have been scarce in the area the past 2 years so it may just be the decreased numbers.

I order this on-line because the store stopped carrying it...WHY! It works great to keep snakes away, is safe for my dogs, AND it smells nice! The "Snake Away" product that is in the stores smells AWFUL...I used it once around the pool, and couldn't be outside for a week because of the smell! PLEASE get more Ortho Snake B Gone...I'll buy it in bulk!

This is an EXCELLENT product!!!!! It is the only snake repellent which also repels mice and beach rats. It contains peppermint. The hurricanes change the environment so be ahead of the game, instead of the additional damage from rodents. Sprinkle a little around the outside of your house every couple weeks. Ortho Snake B Gone needs to be ordered back into the store. ITS A MUST HAVE!

Every spring for the past couple years I will buy this product. Unfortunately this product is not sold in stores where I live so I have to order online. I like that this product is safe to put in my back yard where my dog roams. Since the only snakes that I encounter are garter snakes this works well.

Keep Snakes Away
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don't like snakes and since there is a pond behind our home, we see many slithering around our yard. I have been using Snak B Gon for about a week and I have not seen a snake in our yard. I like the natural products and smell of the cinnamon, peppermint and clove oils plus the geronial and castor oil to help keep the snakes away. The container has an easy open and shake with both a shaker top and the option to pour in needed. I sprinkle this around the edge of the flower bed as that's where the snakes like to hide. Being safe for pets and people is a big plus and one application lasts 30 days.

Would buy it again
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I sprinkled this product around our yard to prevent any snakes from lurking around. I haven't seen any snakes so far. It is really easy to use. Just sprinkle and go.

Snakes gone
This product is very easy to use. You just shake the granules around the perimeter of your property/home. It has two options for application, you can either sprinkle or pour the product. It does not have the strong moth ball like aroma that other products have. It actually has a clean spa- like scent. I applied this product before it got warm and the snakes came out, and as of now I have been lucky and have not seen any snakes. However, our neighbors have killed a couple of snakes. Last year, we had several occurances with copperheads.

Response from Consumer ServicesOct 20, 2015
We apologize that the Ortho Snake B Gon Snake Repellent Granules did not work as expected. Snakes must reenter the area at least once after the application in order for the product to be effective. If it has rained or the treated area has been watered, rain or water after the application will diminish the effectiveness of Snake B Gon Snake Repellent Granules. Again, we apologize for the experience and will pass your comments along to our Quality Assurance Department. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience please contact us to see what can be done.
