    we havent seen any snakes about the house for a few years. in fact i think we have only seen 1 dead baby brown (thats scary - 1 must mean more plus mum).

    DH doesnt use a .22, too easy to miss! 12 guage all the way we have red bellies, browns and tigers on the place.

    apparently black snakes keep brown numbers down (they eat them apparently) and are less venomous then browns.

    Default Snakes and spiders

    All spiders get sprayed and vacuumed.

    If I see a snake I'm calling my neighbor to come shoot it! Say what you want but my DD was bit by a baby red belly at 3 and watching her lay lifeless on a hospital bed is not something I want to see again!

    Default Snakes and spiders

    I leave spiders alone, I don't like killing anything as much as I dislike spiders. I fit were a big huntsmen I would get DH to move it outside. Snakes...well, I just can't risk them hanging around our backyard, as we have 2 dogs, 1 child and our nieces visit regularly. They get killed I probably would call a snake catcher but DH wouldn't have a bar of that.

    Not attacking anyone personally, but I'm genuinely sad by the amount of Australians here who say they kill our snakes :-(

Down side is they also eat our native skinks the little brown ones.

    At our old house we would come home to a dead snake(this happened 4 or 5 times). Our staffy would find them and kill them.

    Spiders dont bother me if I can I will catch it and put them outside.

    Spiders get squashed normally by dh as I freak out.
    Snakes- we had one in our driveway a month back and by the time the snake catcher got here it was gone.
    We now have a snake stake in the backyard which seems to be keeping them away.

    That would have been horrible! I agree though, if I saw a snake I'd get it killed too! Can't risk it when we have kids.
    I'd rather a dead snake than a very ill child!

    No means would I go hunting for a snake. But if it came into or around our house I'd make sure it dies!! I couldn't live with myself if my ds got bitten...

    I'm all for pet snakes. Childrens pythons are really cool. But it's the dangerous ones that I worry about.

    Spiders we leave alone if they are harmless. Things like whitetails and redbacks get killed by my partner cause he is hardline with that whereas I just want to relocate them or keep them as pets.

    Snakes I leave alone if they are harmless and outside. If they are inside and/or dangerous I bag them and relocate them. Once again my partner wants to kill them but I dont let him cause they usually dont come back. Just for the record, venemous snakes are venemous from the time they hatch so small definately doesnt mean safe. Snake catcher is the best option as more people are bitten from trying to kill snakes.
