Just regarding the 'Snake Repelling Stakes' don't waste your money.
I am very good friends with a lot of snake catchers who have found snakes curled up around these.. Tony Harrison who is based on the Gold Coast had a video on YouTube I think of him relocating a snake found wrapped around one.
I understand people's fears of snakes.. But as mentioned earlier the quickest way to get bitten is trying to kill a snake... Call a catcher or remove yourself from the area and it will move on. Snakes WILL NOT chase you.
I'm not having a go at anyone.. Everyone has different fear levels and beliefs on different things.. Just wanted to save someone wasting there money on a gimmick
