The Shoalhaven area is known for its beautiful escarpments of bushland which are great for walking, camping and exploring.

However, there are some savvy DIY snake prevention tricks that you can implement around your backyard to stop snakes slithering near your home.
Snake Prevention through Rock Removal
There are a range of different types of snakes that all prefer various environments. The Yellow Faced Whip Snake is venomous and is sometimes mistaken for an Eastern Brown Snake. As their natural instinct is to hunt lizards and they prefer drier landscapes, the Yellow Faced Whip Snake is likely to shelter under any rocks that are located around your home. Furthermore, the Eastern Small Eyed Snake is also a venomous reptile that lives underneath garden rocks. As this snake is small by nature, they are often difficult to spot and nest in groups. Hence, if you see one, there are potentially many more lurking about. This can be potentially dangerous, especially if you have small children who may be playing near these rocks.
