Sweeney's Snake Repellent

Sweeney's Snake Repellent is an all-natural, biodegradable product, safe for use in areas where children and pets play. Ideal for use around swing sets, sandboxes, pools, gardens, sheds, and woodpiles, the repellent granules are easily applied anywhere you want to repel snakes. The granules last up to 30 days and do not require water after application. Simply shake the granules around the area you want to protect, spreading them to create a 6- to 10-inch-wide barrier strip. The repellent emits a sweet, pungent aroma that snakes find distasteful, causing them to leave the area. MSRP: $12.99 (2-pound bottle) and $17.99 (4-pound bag).

Meadow Springs

Meadow Springs is a nontoxic, effective septic tank maintenance product made with a natural active dry yeast called Eco-Yeast. Differing from bacteria-based products, Eco-Yeast and other natural enzymes safely and effectively energize existing septic tank bacteria and break down solid waste. The result is a smooth-running septic tank with no harsh chemicals. A 2008 study determined that septic tanks treated with Meadow Springs incurred a volatile solids decrease of almost 70% when compared to untreated tanks. After two years of testing, the product is now available for customers at retailers nationally. MSRP: $7.59 (10-ounce bag), $10.99 (20-ounce bag), and $18.29 (60-ounce bag).
