19. We ARE a hardware store!
The product you're talking about is Snake-Away, and it really does work. It's got sulfur in it; snakes hate sulfur.

There's only one little problem with Snake-Away: availability. I have three million square feet of space to get the fucking snakes out of...

hmm...this gives me an idea...

What if I did this: Snakes can't climb forklifts, right? If I were to have them get all the waterlogged merchandise and anything that can absorb odors, like carpeting, out of the building, then set up a series of field-expedient smudge pots (steel garbage cans) and burn sulfur for a few hours, that should drive the smell of sulfur through the building and get rid of the snakes. Yes, we'd then have a huge building that smells like the gates of hell until we got it aired out, but that's better than a huge building full of venomous snakes.
