    Thanks Nattylou

    ABout this snake netting I am interested to know where to get this ?
    There's a Trawler place near us that sells every kind of netting out there
    including bird and cat netting..I called them today and asked them and
    they had no idea..
    The shade cloth would cost us a fortune ..
    Would love to know where to get it from so I can go look ..

    So sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful boy.

    I have done a version of Di Dee's netting in the main dog yard to keep the cane toads out.
    It has worked far better than I expected I am lucky to find 1 or 2 often none at all.
    Before the netting there were 20 to 30 of them every night.

    Just asked hubby. He said some of ours was bird netting from Bunnings.

    He says some has too big holes.

    The one he got is 4mtrs wide. Black or white colour.

    The snake traps are made of loosely twisted folds of bird netting - the idea is they try to wriggle through it and get stuck. And then you should theoretically remove them, before they starve to death.

    I've heard oil of cloves (not the same as cloves or ground cloves but much more intense), is a snake repellant but I imagine you'd only be able to protect doorways and such with that and I've yet to see a snake person confirm it does anything. We've had confirmed that cloves and ground clove powder makes no difference to a snake choice.

    I wouldn't bet my dog's life on oil of cloves but I'd be interested in someone trying it out.

    There is also this thing... electric rat zapper... but it's not much of a barrier if the snake goes around it.

    I had a bit of an Oprah moment just now... my husband is a BNI member {networking group for those not familiar}, and one of the members is a pest control person... and this guy gave a talk the other week about some sort of electronic snake deterrent that gets buried in the ground and emits some sort of sonic pulse aimed at snakes. Perhaps it's worth checking out? These are the contact details - it's not on the website, but I'm sure a phone call or email would answer any questions:

    Eliminator Pest Control | Termites, snakes, spiders, wasps | Pakenham, Berwick, Cranbourne

    I'm not connected with this guy in any way other than remembering what the Mr told me about the snake gadget.

    Hopefully it may be able to help.

    My friend who spent a squillion on getting her dog play area snake proofed - had the sonic snake repellers going when each of the 10 red bellies showed up for "relocation'.

    Maybe some of those gadgets are better than others, but I'd want to see one demo'd with a live untrained snake.

    I have 8 of the sonic repellers and on my observation I don't think they work as the snakes we have caught in the net have come in a few feet from the repellers.
    They are supposed to work for is it 15mtrs or ft each side of them?

    I have one in the middle of the dog yard too. I had really hoped that they would work. We bought them from the bloke in Gympie.

    I came across a little brown about 50cm away from my neighbours sonic repeller just the other day. His are diffrent to mine and so far we havnt had any snakes for the 6 months we have used ours. At first it even kept the canetoads away but after a few months they moved back in....almost like they got used to it. So the jury is still out on the ones in my yard. I certainly wouldnt rely on just them to snake proof a yard and to be honest i wouldn't buy one either. We where given ours as a present so we gave it a go anyway.

    there are ones on ebay from china I guess
    but they do a different sound wave everyday..Spose
    so they can not get use to the same sound..
    I don't trust anything from china though as I know how they work
    over there..
    I use to import myself for my business and everything is replicated ..

    Another words it's all crap....
    I wouldn't trust them unless I seen this in action with a live snake..
