Snake-A-Way is the worlds only EPA approved, university tested, patented snake repellent. It has been proven effective against both poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. When used and applied as directed it is safe to humans, animals and plant life. It has been universally approved and endorsed by naturalists, conservationists and ecologists.
Does Snake-A-Way Really work? You can be confident with the use of SAW. It's efficacy reached over 83% in laboratory testing and is at almost 100% with field studies that all 4 branches of the military ran during the gulf war.
Dr. T's utilizes the knowledge about the snake's Jacobson's organ and interference with the snake's sensory reception ability. In simple terms the snake's nervous system is temporarily shut down.
Naphthalene, a volatile product, and SAW's active ingredient vaporizes, it is brought into the sensory receptor (Jacobson's organ) and creates an immediate interference that is repressive enough to close down the sensory system and scare the snake into a hasty retreat. It was found to be so effective that it protected our military during the gulf war from sand vipers and cobras. You can be confident in it's ability to do the job.
Snake-A-Way like many other established American products such as Listerine, Bayer Aspirin, and Coke Cola was developed by a registered Pharmacist. Pharmacist-inventor James B Tennyson, spent more than 15 years researching, testing, and developing this unique American product.
Extensive university level testing was conducted by Dr. Harvey Lillywhite, an internationally recognized Zoologist at the university of Florida. We expect that there will never be another repellent developed by ourselves or any other company that will be as effective as Snake-A-Way. The reason is simple SAW is not obnoxious, irritating nor a bitter substance that may be overcome, we cut their lights off!
Excerpts from The University of Florida (EPA Testing & Protocol) Effectiveness test were conducted by Dr. Harvey Lillywhite, Professor of Reptology, University of Florida. Dr. Lillywhite is internationally recognized as one of the worlds leading research reptologists. Over ten years of independent research and follow-up tests were also conducted by DR. T's Nature Products. Inc. The effectiveness of the repellent is demonstrated by the following experiments performed with various species, and the products has been found to have a rate of efficacy that varies from 17% to 100% depending on the individual species.

CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION
The principal conclusions from this study are as follows.
(1) SNAKE-A-WAY repels snakes.
In one case the body of the snake started writhing after contacting the strip of repellent. These behaviors were common and acceptable, and they occurred in some individuals as they approached the repellent from distances of 10-15 cm. Four snakes were re-tested two consecutive times, and all repeatedly avoided the repellent.
In various ways, it seems likely that a diffuse scattering of SNAKE-A-WAY pellets over the area beyond the strip would have caused the snake to eventually leave the area. Such procedure might also enhance the effectiveness of the product on substrates that are coarse-grained or uneven.
Considering all the data, the fundamental conclusions regarding efficacy remain the same. SNAKE-A-WAY should significantly decrease occurrences.
Copperheads were strongly repelled by SNAKE-A-WAY, while the related cottonmouths were not. This result is interesting insofar as cottonmouths inhabit swamps and readily feed on carrion. It is possible that the sulfurous smell of the repellent is normally encountered by the latter species, either in parts of the natural habitat or during carrion feeding, or both.
