Yes, you certainly can install the device on top of a fence. Sometimes it is the only way to stop possums from coming down the fenceline.
If you have possums in a wall cavity, you will need to put the device inside the roof space, which is where they are most likely using to get into your house. Unless you have a split level house or something like that where possums may have access under your house, any device would have to go into your roof space. It is the Roof Off device that we use inside roof cavities, Have a look at the Roof-off Possum Removal
How well that would work is hard to say. Do the snakes have any other way of getting in and out of your shed, other than the entrance?
If yes, then 1 snake repeller by the entrance could be only partially effective
If the entrance is the only way in and out, having a device there is the logical spot, but how big is the shed?
A big shed might need more than one device, and installing a device(s) inside the shed might be needed as well. Probably best to get our battery-powered snake deterrents for use inside a shed.
The Roof Off device is more often used against possum but can also be used against rats. The device has different settings for different critters, and for example, there is a setting for possums and a different setting for rats. This means it would repel one species at a time. But there is also another setting that could be described as a mixture of both settings so as to target both possums and rats.
Another device called the CEX has one setting that repels both possums and rats. The CEX is the prefered device to repel both possums and rats at the same time but it does make a low-level sound you can hear. It is best to call us to discuss your circumstances and listen to this device over the phone before purchasing.
The snake repellers are a harmless product. They repel snakes by sending a vibration through the ground. We don’t see this as a bother for chooks and have had no negative reports from existing customers about their chooks.
Burning down a house is my worst nightmare. We have been using 12v devices like the CEX since 1992 and haven’t burnt down a house yet. The CEX has been used inside roof spaces to repel possums and rats for many years. The CEX has the longest range against possums and rats but it also emits a low-level audible sound you can hear. In some roof spaces, this won’t be a problem for people, but in others, it could be. Always best to give us a call prior to buying anything online as we might recommend the Roof Off device instead of the CEX. The Roof Off is much quieter compared to the CEX.
For 90% of possum deterrent customers pointing the device at what you want to protect is what works best, so have the device down low. But, for 10% of customers pointing the device at where the possums come from is what works best, so you would have the device up high and in a manner that ensures they exposed to the direct line of sight with the device for as long as possible. At my own home, I had a problem similar to yours, and I put the possum deterrent down low, but it didn’t work. But like yourself, I had a high wall where the possums always came from, and in my situation, it was the only way they could come in. I installed the device up high to cover that spot and it worked straight away, and no more possums.
Hope that helps.
The Solar Possum Repeller is designed to be used on motion sensor mode only, so whenever the device detects movement it will emit ultrasonics. It does have the alternative option of emitting ultrasonics every 30 minutes, but that would be insufficient for most possum problems. The Possum Deterrent device is designed to emit ultrasonics in a more constant manner. This device randomly and intermittently emits ultrasonics, so there are some breaks in between ultrasonics ranging from 2 seconds and up to 2 minutes.
We don’t have a weighted base plate, but we do have a ground stake. This stake is basically a metal tube that the Kite pole slips into, and a length of angle iron welded onto the bottom of the tube that can be banged into the ground. You could do this at the beach but do use the smaller Bird Gard Kite if you are installing the Kite into the sand as the larger Eagle Kite has a much greater surface area and thus wind resistance and might be too heavy for a sand-based installation.
