THE INFLATABLE SNAKE is a quick, easy, versatile and cost effective way to keep birds and other pests off your property.

How does the Inflatable Snake work?

Snakes eat birds and other small pests and will hide and use stealth to hunt their prey. So if a bird or pest sees a snake, they will flee and avoid that area in future.

The pests seeing the inflatable snake will mistake it for a real one and stay away from your property.

All you need to do to install the Inflatable snake is to take it out of the packet, inflate it and place it where you want it. It is recommended that you secure the snake to stop it from moving if its in an outside area.

Once inflated the snake will be 6 feet long.

Conditions the Inflatable Snake works best
