What exactly is a snake repeller? How do they work?

EBC Silent solar powered snake repellers are specially designed to keep your grounds snake free. They are a compact long stemmed device, inserted around 15cms into the ground. They emit vibrations through the ground. Ground dwelling snakes sense these vibrations through their nervous system (snakes don’t have ears!) as large heavy footed animals which to them spell danger. And so they take off!

The clever EBC variable vibration motor technology takes full advantage of snakes’ sensory systems to deter them without harming them. The change in vibration frequency prevents snakes from acclimatizing to the vibrations, and saves you having to relocate them every couple of months.

A bonus is that consistent use of EBC snake repellers also deters snakes from establishing a territory on your property.

How many EBC snake repellers do I need?

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. It’s also important to take into account 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.

How much sun do they need?

For optimum efficiency EBC solar powered snake repellers require around 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily. In wet weather the charge will hold for up to 10 days.


What about shady spots?

EBC battery powered snake repellers are ideal for all those shady spots. They work off four D cell batteries which generally last between 6 and 8 months and can be easily replaced. This is long enough to cover snake season in most areas. The repellers cover an area of 30 meters diameter and will last for years.


Should I choose solar or battery powered snake repellers?

Solar powered snake repellers are the best in spots that receive at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight a day on average to maintain full charge. The Lithium-Ion batteries have a large capacity that can last you up to 2 years and can be easily replaced.

Battery powered snake repellers are perfect for those shady spots, under houses, inside dirt floored sheds etc. They take 4 D cell batteries, average life 6 to 8 months and also easily replaced.

Why use snake repellers instead of other methods?

It’s a well proven fact that most snake bites occur when people attempt to catch, corner or kill snakes. Current statistics in Australia show that up to a whopping 8 out of 10 bites occur this way. Avoiding confrontation is the safest form of defence as most snakes are timid by nature until they feel threatened. Many Australian snakes are also protected species.

Will they affect or worry my pets?

Our golden retriever sleeps right beside one of our repellers. And many, many of our customers tell us of similar experiences, that snake repellers don’t worry their pets at all.
