Fig 1: Kids from grade 2 planting device m2
This time we needed to maintain three of the snake repellent devices (figures 1, 3, and 4) because they were found pulled out of their spots. Probably some of the kids did that. But the snake repellent devices were all still there. What we needed to do was to plant them again at their designated spots.
The kids from grade 2 lent a hand. They needed to see where the snake repellent devices were planted so that they could also help to look after those devices. One more device was placed by the window of grade-2 classroom (figure 5). This was done because the grade-2 teachers had requested one there because some of the kids had seen some rats there. (Note that rats may attract snakes.)
In the last 3 months after we planted all the snake repellent devices at the strategic spots (figure 2), we have not spotted any snake ever since. The result can be attributed to the summer season that has been occuring in Thailand until June, the impact of the snake repellent devices, and the woods now growing along the hill slope, where snakes may go to hide.
Thank you for your generous support. As this project is still open, please share it with your friends. Any further donations can be saved for any of snake repellent devices that we may buy more for use in the next rainy season.
