Work has started on the mountain below us again, so the snakes will be on the move again, I thought maybe we should be prepared. Something I hope we never have to use, but it\’s there if needed.
I took a length of 1\” dowel I had in the wood bin, drilled a hole to accept the piece of bent rebar, I had in the metal bin, and inserted an eye in the other end to hang it out of the way.
I then inserted the rebar into the dowel, at the moment it is a friction fit, with a few taps from a hammer, but if it comes loose in future I can always epoxy it in place. I then masked the end of the dowel and spray it with some hideous pink, I had left over from another project. This snake stick will do the job until I can find, or make something better
