    Sulphur to repel Snakes?

    Touch wood, I haven't yet seen a snake in Turkey. There has been some building work in a field behind our house and I'm afraid that there might be snakes on the lookout for a new habitat, so I want to take precautions. I'm reliably informed that sprinkling sulphur around the perimeter of the...

    My friend has found a yellow snake in her garden, does anyone know if it is dangerous and whether she needs to get someone in to spray the garden for snakes. She has small children and would appreciate some information as no-one on her site seems to have seen a yellow snake before. Thanks Miela
