Question:

Does bleach repel rattlesnakes?

Submitted by – Athena – Tucson, AZ

Answer:

I’m a bit unclear about what you’re asking. Bleach poured on the ground? Bleach used on your clothing? Bleach rubbed into your skin? An open container of bleach placed outside your tent? But anyway, as far as I know, no objective studies have shown that bleach repels rattlesnakes.
