Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

After previously downplaying the danger posed by snakes in Central Vic I am now having a change of heart.

Seems conditions are ideal for a snakey summer and there are plenty of them around.

Be careful out there.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

Yep, it sure is snake season.

Saw a Copperhead on Saturday in the bush near Beaufort, Vic. It darted in front of me when I was detecting. It was about 1.5 metres (5 feet) long and had its neck flattened like a Cobra.

I buggered off in the opposite direction. Couldnt get back to the car quick enough for an International Roast to calm my nerves.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

Where I detected on Sat there were also heaps of Jumping Jack ants.

When there's a lot of ants around I spray my gumboots with insect repellent. Works well.

Another thing you can spray on your gumboots or other non-porous footwear is insect surface spray. Kills the little buggers.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

I read somewhere about a doctor at a hospital saying that snakes often do not inject venom when they strike as it takes them a long time to make a new batch. They said that the only time that he sees people at the hospital that are poisoned are when they show up with multiple bite marks and a dead snake. Last year a reptile specialist told me that snakes cannot see you as any kind of threat unless you are moving and the best way to deal with a snake nearby was to just stand still. He said that the best way to get bitten was to try and kill the snake.

Ironically the only person who died that nite was the obsese 29yr old in the bed beside me from a heart attack! hmm

In that year I was also bitten by a cattle dog, a possum, a paralysis tick, a mangrove jack, a turtle and a 2 1/2 year old toddler.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

Since switching to coin detecting the main critters ive dealt with have been wasps. No bites but they're still a big nuisance.

Broken glass and dog shit now pose the greatest threats to my health and wellbeing, used to be ant nests and mineshafts. lol

Looks like a stick insect thats had a piece snapped off. tongue

If it doesnt have fangs or a stinger on its arse the likelihood of it attacking or killing you is very small so you should just keep on going about your normal daily activities.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

I pulled up a tree stump once and a bunch of whatever was in the roots flew onto my leg (I was wearing jeans).  I looked down and saw 4 large black funnelwebs on my thigh. I was wearing gloves and quickly brushed them off. Changed undies.

Check out the benefits of predatory wasp's. There's a whole lot more than meets the eye. Figs for example even.
Wasp's ain't all bad.

Re: Be careful out there. (Contains biting Critters and OH&S)

i was at carinda and a king brown came at me too, start of spring so it woke up very angry.  i tried to get out of its way and it wanted to dance and give me a big kiss.  Fortunately i was thrown a spade and i got him before her got me.
