You guys have got it sweet in the states as far as bugs n snakes go try mowing a lawn thats in a King brown snakes territory( the thing will actually chase you bitting the mower). We have at least one snake to every 3000sft around here and I have been bitten on two separate occasions by brown snakes and have four toes on my right foot because of a bit. Now I hear you guys going on about little bee and wasp stings like its the end of the world.
So here is a little Aussie bush trick for the next time youz get stung but Some of youz arn't going to like this. The best thing to stop the pain of any bite is to pi*s on it. Yep thats right Urine holds a natural antiseptic so next time you get stung all you need to do is get the jewels out and think about pinnacle's right foot.


If your not happy with your work you may as well stay in bed

Again go on your hand and rub it on your back.

and as far as snakes go I would forget the "Golden ointment" and get to hospital with a good anti venom. Be more worried about death than pain I think.

Yeh mate your a bit of a smart --- arn't you.
1 I said botanicaly Aloevera holds no antiseptic values and if you can find Aleo in the ground with lidocain you'll be up for a nobel prize
2 If you had actually tryed what I am talking about you would agree that its far better than your bloody aleo spray thats why Aboriginals in my country have been doing this over thousands of years mate.

Within 2 mins of my foot being bitten I was sweating mess. And could not see anything whitnin 10min from what I have been told my toes were turning into a horific ulseration and buy the time I got to the hospital is had 1 1/2 feet in the grave. The Australian KIng Brown Has one of the most toxic venoms of any snake in the world. So to answer your qestion no. As I said in my other reply

Yeah, you guys got all the dangerous critters down under. That Brown Snake is probably the most agressive of all. Don't forget to tell your stories about the Funnelweb Spiders. Surely you have some (I know, don't call you Shirley).

The Funnel webs are more of a south east coast thing here so I'am lucky enough not to have any stories but an olde mate of mine in Sydney was bitten and he is not with us any more.

God bless you Paul,family and all the people at Green Corner Maintenance

Listen Pinnacle, I'm not about to unzip for a puny little sting, cause sure as I do, one of those King Brown critters is gonna take aim.

Seriously now, I've seen documentaries and heard of numerous events like you describe about that snake. Why isn't there a real serious eradication program going on?
Gives me the willies thinkin' about trying to mow around such a thing. I'd have to have some steel tub of a mower with a shotgun turret, or a two man mower, one riding shotgun.
I know my prices just went up.
More power to ya, and fewer reptiles.

Its a catch22 with the snakes here. The reason there is not a snake cull or eradication program is all to do with "Ecological sustainablity" you get rid of the browns and you'll have a problem with the red belly blacks and so on. Where not that silly down under!
