Can only find one review on it GS and person bought 4 and said it works, can see product here http://www.stop-snakes.com/Australia%20Page.htm
Me I am skeptical about anything like that, tried the mice and mozzie ones, completely useless, I personally have invented elephant repellent myself though, since using it I haven't seen an elephant in Narrogin for years :lol: and yes before you ask, we have photographic evidence of an elephant in the local bar in the 1950's, so it must work, if you have elephant problems then I would be glad to sample you some repellent, a warning though, it doesn't work on white eared elephants, if you have never seen a white eared elephant then I could upload a photo, but I may get banned after :run:

EDIT found some reviews here http://www.stop-snakes.com/Feedback.htm

Snakes always appear to me to be so unphased by anything.It is a pity that some of them are deadly cos they all just look so loveable.
All easy for me to say as I dont have them slithering around my yard. I dont think I do!!

That's a scary sight first thing in the morning Jaymie.
Erica is no longer a baby, she is now about a metre long, you should see the skin when she sheds, it is very long and perfect.

Well, so much for my aviary wire keeping out snakes. I came across a dugite slithering across my path the other day and watched, helpless, while it pushed it's way through the wire, forcing the hole larger to get through, then into the old garage where I keep my gardening tools. Damn! :scared2:

So my garden is not a snake-free haven after all. Now I'll have to remember to watch out for snakes ALL the time.

Oh, well. At least the rabbits can't get into the garden - as long as I remember to keep shutting the gate behind me :bash:

We used to pour a good line of diesel oil around the perimeter of the house fence out at the station I worked on (before the whole EPA thing ) and that appeared to work, for some reason the "Joe Blakes" didn't like it.
