SLITHER AWAY ULTRASONIC SNAKE REPELLER 2 PACK
The Slither Away Ultrasonic Snake Repeller is an efficient, easy way to deter snakes from your home and workspace.
Keeping your family away from snakes during the warmer months is paramount; it only takes one second to create an unwanted and dangerous medical emergency!
Reduce the risk of an unsafe situation with a snake by installing snake repellers. There is no 100% effective snake deterrent, but our families and pets are priceless, reducing that risk as much as possible is a no brainer.
STRONG VIBRATION FREQUENCIES
The repeller creates a vibration strong enough to mimic large animal movements. Snakes want to avoid confrontation with larger animals; they instinctively keep away from the protected areas.
The vibration frequencies emitted change frequently, which prevents the snakes from acclimatising to these vibrations.
Protect your home, garden shed, carport, children's cubby house, garden patch and more with the Slither Away Ultrasonic Snake Repeller.
40M PROTECTION ZONE
The Slither Away Snake Repeller has a 40m protection zone and is 100% weather-resistant. This snake repellent is designed to be efficient in every climate.
The Ultrasonic Snake Repeller is fitted with both solar panels and a battery system. This combination allows it to work day and night to protect your family and pets.
Maximise your Protection Against Snakes
To get the most out of your snake deterrents, and to effectively protect your property, we recommend the following:
1. GET SNAKES PROFESSIONALLY REMOVED FIRST
If there are already snakes living in your garden, roof, or anywhere else on your property, get them professionally removed. This helps avoid a “fight, flight or freeze” reaction from a snake.
If you place a deterrent near a snake, they are likely to come towards the repeller in “fight” mode, slither away from it or freeze.
The most common reaction is for a snake to freeze as they don’t know where to go whilst they feel these vibrations.
With a snake “frozen” in place, you haven’t effectively deterred them from your property and your pets and family are still at risk! So remove all snakes safely before you place the deterrents.
2. CONSIDER THE LAYOUT OF YOUR PROPERTY
Consider all pathways a snake could enter your property.
If you have a driveway or path made of concrete, pavers or other rigid materials, a snake will use these to enter your property.
Ultrasonic vibrations will not pass through these solid surfaces, so you will need to carefully consider the devices’ placement to ensure all sides are covered.
3. AVOID DESENSITISATION
A snake becoming desensitised to the vibration is relatively rare (though still possible).
Most snakes will move out of the area instead of getting comfortable with the vibration.
Avoid desensitisation by avoiding trapping snakes in the area you want to protect by having them professionally removed first.
4. INSTALL REPELLERS IN THE GROUND
Deterrents work on most snakes that are moving along the ground. The device will not work if a snake is in a tree or roof.
Please note very young snakes may respond poorly to the deterrents.
5. KEEP YOUR PROPERTY MAINTAINED
Keep grass cut short and avoid having large piles of stuff (corrugated iron, firewood etc.) that a snake could use to hide.
Ensure your shed is enclosed, sandpits for children are sealed and remove items that attract rodents.
HOW MANY SNAKE REPELLERS DO YOU NEED FOR YOUR HOME?
There are several factors you need to consider to have sufficient coverage.
Draw a map of your property and all driveways, pathways, structures and hard surfaces in it so you can find the best places for the snake deterrents.
Soil types: If the soil is sandy, or has fine stones through it, deterrents need to be 10m apart. If you have shallow topsoil, we recommend reducing the deterrents to be 10m apart.
Pathways & driveways: If you have pathways made of concrete, gravel, pavers, bitumen or other hard materials, the repellent will not work through it. You will need a repellent on either side to effectively deter snakes.
Multi-levels: If you have multi-levelled ground, you will need snake deterrents on each level as the vibrations won’t travel between them.
You also need to consider how you will be protecting your property.
Protect immediately around your house: Depending on how large your property is, a deterrent placed at each corner could be sufficient. You want to provide overlapping vibration between the deterrents.
The snake deterrents work best when they are away from the walls, as they cover a more significant area.
Protect your entire property: Forming a barrier along your fence line is key to protecting your whole property. Ideally, do not place the repellents more than 25m apart.
Protecting one direction: If snakes are only coming from one direction, i.e. neighbouring grassland, place deterrents along that boundary.

I’ve seen photos of snakes wrapped around snake repellers, do they really work?
Yes, our snake repellers do work. Unfortunately, there are single vibration frequency snake repellers on the market, which snakes can get used to. Our Ultrasonic Snake Repellers use variable frequencies, and this is effective in deterring snakes.
To maximise your protection, you need to follow our recommended protocols.
Before installing Ultrasonic Snake Repellers, we recommend professionally removing snakes from the property. If you install repellers whilst a snake is in the area, they may fight, flight or freeze.
Few species choose to come towards the repeller whilst the ultrasonic vibration is happening to “fight” it, the most common reaction for a snake is to slither away or freeze. “Freezing” means the snake doesn’t know where to go or what to do when they feel the vibrations, so they just stay still. A snake “freezing” near your deterrent still puts your family and pets at risk, removing all snakes prior to installation is critical.
Snake repellers are most effective when snakes are moving along the ground, and it will not work if a snake is up a tree, on a bird aviary, or on hard surfaces like a driveway.
Vibrations will not pass into or through solid surfaces, finding the best locations on your property that protect every area will be critical.
Can snakes get used to the vibration?
Yes, a snake can become desensitised to the ultrasonic vibrations; however, this is rare.
It takes prolonged exposure to the vibrations to become desensitised, and the only way this would happen is if the snake is trapped in your snake deterrent boundary.
Ensure all snakes are removed from the area before you install snake deterrents, and you will avoid this issue.
Do they repel lizards, frogs, toads, birds, pets etc.?
No, snake repellers are designed to deter snakes only.
Do the snake repellers work on all snakes?
Our snake repellers work on most snakes that are moving along the ground. A young, juvenile snake may react to the ultrasonic vibrations poorly.
I found a snake in my backyard, does that mean the device doesn’t work?
You likely need to adjust the placement of your snake repellents.
Ultrasonic vibrations will not go through concrete, pavers, bricks, bitumen or gravel, and their radius will decrease if the topsoil is loose, has lots of stones, has lots of sand or is cracked.
Mapping out your property is key. Make sure you have repellents on each side of a pathway, driveway or large structure to ensure the radius is protected.
Think about the ground you’re placing the deterrents in, if it is like the examples listed above, move the deterrents closer together to increase your protection.
