From saying goodbye to slithering things to paving the way to a more usable patio, we have highlighted five must-have products that will make the most out of the 2014 summer season.

Deer, Wildlife & Insect control:

Keep your clients’ homes and gardens free from unwanted snakes with Dr. T’s Snake-A-Way®. This fast-acting repellent starts working immediately after application. It temporarily disrupts the snake’s sensory receptors, called Jacobson’s Organ, which causes the snake to slither away disoriented and unharmed in search of fresh air. Snake-A-Way comes in granular form, making it easy to apply only to certain areas, and with its time release formula, it gives long-lasting protection.
