- Dr. T's Snake-A-Way - This is the only commercial snake repellant that I've run across. I have never tried it, but the information at this site states that it has undergone tests by a zoologist at the University of Florida, Dr. Harvey Lillywhite. If anyone tries this stuff, let me know how it works.
- SnakeGuard - this is a snake trap. I've not seen it in use, so don't know how effective it is.
