Use Snake Repellents to create an avoidance zone

Sureguard Snake Repellents have been developed as a deterrent to many kinds of snakes. They emit a pulsing vibration into the surrounding soil. When the snake perceives the vibration as a source of danger most snakes will choose to avoid confrontation. (Similar principle to bush walkers walking noisily to scare snakes away.)

Snake Facts:

  • Scientists have evidence that snakes can detect the direction of vibration!
  • Vibrations as small as one billionth of a meter can be sensed by some snakes!
  • Snakes hardly hear airborne sounds but are sensitive to vibration.
  • Most snakes choose to avoid danger.

Snake Repellents:

  • Vibrate to signal danger.
  • Vibrate within the snakes pitch range.

Do Snake Repellents Really Deter Snakes?

Our customers say they work very well. We encourage you to read the many hundreds of customer reviews at the bottom of this page, both good & bad!

Sureguard are so confident about the performance of our products, we have a special Guarantee (see menu top of page). You may install and try the product. If you are not completely satisfied with the results we'll happily refund your money!

Note: Snakes that are disturbed and subsequently moving with a fight-or-flight response may not necessarily respond to the repellent's action.

Functional & Attractive

This solar powered snake repeller is both functional and attractive. Ideal for pathways and gardens as it includes beautiful LED illumination at night.

This latest release of our popular Premium model now has a Multi-Pulse feature. Every two days the vibration pattern changes. Several patterns cycle over 7-days. This can help deter snakes that encounter the repellent again.

The solar panel works in full sun or cloudy conditions and the rechargeable backup battery provides extra power during cloud or at night.

Battery Operated Snake Deterrents are also available.

Easy Digger

There are a number of factors to consider:

To protect one spot, one snake repellent may be sufficient.

To protect the area immediately around your house, one repellent at each corner could be enough to provide overlapping vibration between adjacent repellents. Best coverage is when the snake repellents are away from the walls, say 5m.

Protecting the whole property is also practical by forming a barrier around your fence-line. The repellents are placed no more than 25m apart.

If you have snakes coming from a certain direction, for example, neighbouring grassland, you could simply place the snake repellents along that boundary. The repellent action will transmit under most fences so in this way you keep the snakes off your property at a distance.

Some situations may require more repellents.

Soil types: The 25m apart is a maximum range for most soils, but for sandy soil or soil with a lot of fine stones, you should reduce this to 10m apart.

Hard objects: If you have pathways, you'll need a repellent on both side because the vibration doesn't pass through hard objects in the ground. This applies to concrete, bitumen, gravel, pavers, etc.

Shallow top soil: If your top soil is shallow then reduce the separation between repellents.

Multi-level ground: You'll need snake repellents on both levels where ground is terraced because the vibration won't travel between levels.

Soil cracks: If the soil is dry and cracked you'll need repellents on both side because the vibration doesn't cross the gap.

Do Sureguard Snake Repellents repel lizards, eg. Blue Tongues, etc.?
No, they are designed for snakes and there is no evidence of lizards being affected.

Do Sureguard Snake Repellents repel frogs, toads, birds, pets, etc.?

No, they are only designed for snakes.

Can snakes be caught inside the protective boundary?

It is possible. If you already have snakes living in your garden, you should consider having them professionally removed before installing the repellents. (Try searching for: snake catcher, snake removal or snake handler). Another strategy is to install the repellent centrally, say around the house area, then week by week move them further away until you have them all moved to your property boundary.

Can snakes get used to the vibration so it becomes less effective?

Repeated exposure to the vibration could lessen the deterrent. In psychology this is called desensitisation. In practice this is rare because the snake moves out of the area. However, take care not to inadvertently trap the snake in the protected area. For example, one Sureguard customer had a snake under the slab of her house. She placed the repellent at the entrance of the hole to repel the snake. The snake did not come out for weeks, obviously feeling trapped, but eventually overcome its fear and went past the repellent. The correct installation would be to wait for the snake to exit the hole and later place the repellent there before the snake returned.

Do the repellents work on all snakes?

Sureguard Snake Repellents work on most snakes moving along the ground. A python moving off a tree onto your aviary won’t be deterred. Similarly, tree snakes won’t be affected. Juvenile snakes may respond poorly. Sureguard do not recommend using repellents against species Acanthophis antarcticus (Common Death Adder). Unlike other snakes that tend to move away from human activity, the Death Adder's method of hunting by ambush means it tends to stay hidden. (Reference: Wikipedia - Acanthophis).

I saw a snake moving off in the direction of a repellent, why?

To explain this behaviour you need to understand the psychology of how the product works and a concept in psychology called the “fight or flight response” (see Wikipedia). When a snake is casually moving through the environment and starts to detect the vibration, it chooses not to go there. Perhaps it is dangerous, the snake does not know. Is there an urgency in the snake’s mind? Not necessarily. If the snake is casually moving toward the protected area the snake may simply change direction without you ever knowing it was around. However, when you saw the snake moving quickly it had likely already detected you and chose to quickly move away. This is a natural “flight response”. Did it also detect the repellent? Not necessarily so; the repellents emit a pulsed vibration every 30 to 60 seconds. Between the pulses there is nothing to sense. This would explain the snake’s poor choice of direction.

I found a snake sunning itself on some garden steps. Why wasn’t it repelled?

Carefully analyse how the snake may have travelled to that point. Remember, the repellents won’t affect a snake moving on some hard surfaces, e.g. concrete, pavers, bitumen, etc. For example, Sureguard had a customer call our technical department for assistance. Repellents had been installed around the whole back yard but a snake later found its way to the back door. When we analysed the installation we found a 2m section of concrete pathway unprotected on the property boundary because it was not considered worthwhile placing a repellent on this narrow strip. It was effectively a hole in the boundary which the snake happened to come through then travel on the concrete to the back door. A repellent had been used on one side of the concrete pathway but the protection didn’t extend across to the other side. The solution was to place the repellent on the other side of the pathway. This solution worked.

I have a snake in my roof, can I place the repellent there?
Sureguard Snake Repellents have only been designed to repel snakes on the ground. Do not hang them on the roof or gutter, or on trees or other structures.


Customer Reviews

I am a repeat customer. Haven't seen a snake since I put in my new solar powered snake repellers. Always happy with the product and the service. The initial service and following after sales service, not to mention the quality of the repellers, stops me from buying cheaper versions from overseas.

Lynn Maney

Very happy with our snake repellers. We had approx 12 snakes in as many days and have not seen one since installing the repellers!

    My first solar powered snake repellent had great results in keeping snakes away from my chooks and eggs. Unfortunately it got broken and the snakes soon returned, so I quickly purchased another---------- and snakes no more. Definitely works

    Solar powered snake repellent
    The snake repellents were easy to install and the led lights look nice at night-time. We have not seen a snake since we installed the repellants, so as far as we're concerned they work well. All in all, a very good product and one which is marketed in an efficient and professional way.

    Dear folks, My replacement Sureguard landed yesterday and is keeping us safe as we speak. I am as mystified as you as to how the last one broke down; I can only think that the hailstorm we endured was even worse than I thought, and I was in the thick of it. What is not in doubt, beside the quality of the product, is the fantastic helpful service you gave me after the storm. If I was only bragging about you to all my mates before, i'm doing it to a brass band now. Well done; please feel free to add my recommendation to your website. Thank you again.

    Bought products as we had a snake in the yard and lost a pet. We received prompt delivery and found it easy to install. Not sure about the regular beeps. Hopefully this will repel any snakes. [Editor:the beeps are the unit working.They are the vibrations every 30 seconds or so. If your finding them a bit noisy check you installation depth is correct as this alleviates most noise.]

    So far, so good! No serpents inside our internal fence (we live on 5 acres) since installing the serpent guards. One installed only 5 metre from our bedroom can be heard buzzing for 5 seconds on the minute, even though I am supposedly deaf (my wife tewlls me). I can hear it well and feel condident so do any marauding serpents.We own 2 dachshunds who love palying with bobtail lizards and we were worried that serpents would also be played with. Many neighbours and friends report favourably on their expereice with you product. Again, so far, so good !
