Hydrated lime is best and I believe this lime is not hydrated
From the information I can find, lime does not repel snakes. I suppose you could throw the bag at them and that'd repel them, but spreading it on the ground will do nothing. My personal testing has shown that it repels elephants though. I put it down in my yard in Colorado about 2 years ago and haven't seen an elephant since.

So, decomposition creates acids and lime helps offset the increased acidity. The problem is lime converts nitrogen into gas so you loose the nitrogen all together. If you wish to apply this lime, you should rake back the bark chips, apply the lime then rack the bark chips back over it.
