It important to ensure that your home has the right number and type of snake repellers to give you the best coverage and protection to keep you, your family and pets safe from deadly ground snakes.
A simple rule of thumb is that each repeller has a range of over 40 metres diameter in open
ground situations. Between 2 and 4 repellers should cover most suburban blocks. It’s definitely worth putting an extra one near kennels, aviaries, chook runs, feed sheds etc.
If you wish to create a perimeter defence, simply measure your boundary and divide by 40 to calculate how many you’ll need.
Please note that the vibrations will not travel through concrete and large solid objects such as
patios, paths, roadways etc. so you may need to use more repellers to work around these areas. As a rough guide, we recommend the following:
- Small Yard - 2 repellers
- Average house block - 4 repellers
- Large house block - 6 repellers
- Rural block - 8 repellers
- Small acreage - 10 repellers
- Farm - 20 repellers
