Well we’ve had stinking hot January here in vic. But traditionaly feburary is the hottest month. Seems as it’s going to be pretty cool in comparison to years gone by. Must be climate change. big_smile

Bloody hell Nanjim - where are you at again? That’s toasty!

You’re right though Bjay. Gone from roasting to Autumn here in Vic. And the next week is only mid to high 20’s.

A pleasant change I reckon. But the heat will be back no doubt wink

I’m hoping we get a warm sunny day soon, as I have a tiger snake that has taken up residence in or around me shed thumbsdown spotted it the last hot day sunning itself and when it heard me coming it slithered into a gap in the bluestone retainer wall yikes
Went into the shed and here’s this big snake skin on the floor! thumbsdown

Hey grubstake
Yeah that’s exactly why he is there as the chook house backs onto me shed thumbsdown
I don’t normally freak out with them as we all know they will avoid us and retreat for cover thumbsup
But this ones just a tad too close to the walkway and besides that he’s in me bloody shed mad
I’m planning on putting on a thick pair of trackies as well as me fishing waders armed with me snake stick and see if he is indeed a resident of my shed argh

Hi there Manpa
I’m hearing what both yourself and jaros are saying but to get me safely back in the shed and the snake re located in the next postcode I need to determine if it has in fact taken up residence in there argh
I do have a fine gauge fishing net set up with a few small bowls of milk in the middle trying to lure the bloody thing out but have been unsuccessful in doing so thumbsdown we have had a bad year with the joe Blake’s and on Boxing Day our jack Russell was under the deck barking and got tagged by a tiger snake on the lip , I only just caught a glimpse of it as it was retreating right under the house I called the dog out and she bloody well went running down the paddock at a million miles an hour and by the time we got to her the venom was already starting to take effect ( yes taking off was the worst thing she could have done) we got her up to the house and without a word of a lie she was vomiting white froth and was starting to be paralysed 10 minutes later she was dead cry
We have never seen anything like it, boy there venom must be potent! The owners of the property right next to us had a tiger snake removed a few days after this happened and we all breathed a sigh of relief but unfortunately I think the snake that got the dog is residing in or around the shed thumbsdown we have also noticed that the resident frogs that used to croak at night have disappeared and I’m tipping that they would be well and truly snake poop poop poop by now. yikes

Milk??? It's not a kitten lol lol

Then again we had a Lizard that would drink the cat milk and the cat food...

I get snakes a lot in the shed, I find the skins laying over my tools and fishing gear,

I just make a lot of sound when I am opening the shed door..

Goody smile

Yeah milk thumbsup some say it’s a wives tale and others say it’s a sure bet to lure them out!
In the past it has never worked for me but I’m exhausting all avenues before I have to put on my trackie dacks and waders sad
Oh I almost forgot, armed with me big snake stick lol lol lol

Yes, they do like milk. Sprinkle some flour on the floor to see if he is moving about at night.

I’ve just gone down and replaced the old milk with fresh, also very nervously opened the shed door and sprinkled a heap of flour on the floor as well as laying out a bit more fishing net perfect
So fingers crossed and I’ll keep you guys posted smile
