How does the Home Shielders’ snake repellent work?
The Home Shielders’ snake repellent uses vibration to stop snakes from entering your property. Vibrations make snakes and small mammals like mice and rats uncomfortable so they will actively avoid them.
The Home Shielders’ snake repellent overcomes many shortcomings of chemical or pellet snake repellents. It is completely safe, you will always know the area is protected, it won’t need regular replenishment and it is completely safe for your family and pets.
What’s the coverage area of your snake repellent?
The Solar SafeGuard snake repellent has a coverage area of around 8,500ft2. That’s enough for most properties. You can use these snake repellents in pairs or groups for larger properties or more persistent pests.
Will snake repellents affect my cat or dog?
No, they won’t! You’ll hear a very slight buzz when you first turn on the snake repellent but once you stake it fully into the ground, it will become undetectable to humans and most household pets.
Do I need to wire up the Solar SafeGuard snake repellent?
The Solar SafeGuard snake repellent is a fully self-contained unit. It has a solar panel on top and a battery inside to store the charge. That battery can provide up to 7 days’ worth of steady vibration between charges so there is no need for external power.
How long will it take to begin working?
Most Home Shielders customers report the Solar SafeGuard begins taking effect from between two and three weeks. Much will depend on the property and the scale of the snake problem but you should definitely begin seeing a reduction in pests within that time.
Does the snake repellent work on other critters too?
Yes, it does! While designed primarily for burrowing critters like moles, the Solar SafeGuard has proven itself very effective against rats, mice, voles, raccoons, snakes, gophers and other small mammals who can detect the vibration.
Do snake repellents need maintenance or turning on or off?
No, they don’t! The Solar SafeGuard is completely automatic. Once you turn it on and stake it into the ground, you can leave it to do its work. The solar panel provides power, the vibration motor is designed for prolonged use and the entire unit should provide long-lasting, fully automatic protection from all kinds of snakes and small critters.
Will my lawn sprinkler damage the snake repellent?
No, it won’t. The Solar SafeGuard snake repellent is IPX4 rated, meaning it’s fully waterproof. It can cope with rain, sprinklers, the cold, wind and the worst our weather can throw at it!
