    Let the system chase them away.
    Fit a pepper gas system - end of the problem.
    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, you’re missing the point.

    Can you please tell us more about this pepper gas system!?
    How it works outdoors etc.
    The physical attributes, to this life cannot be made more or less, however can be altered to suit!!

    Pepper gas systems discharge pepper gas when intrusion into the area they are protected is detected.
    Highly effective when installed correctly.

    Alternatively there are units that will discharge pepper gas using a remote control.

    Outdoor use is more difficult.
    There are systems available that dump large volumes of pepper gas for this application.

    There are several manufacturers.
    Here’s one.

    In my other life we designed and installed many such systems with great success.

    That Python sounds like a good idea! How many would you recommend?

    Good call on CCTV direct, recently I sent back supposed 30w Solar street lights I bought from them. Light output was less than s normal 10W LED light and the 50 hour battery life was closer to 5 hours.

    Only good thing was they refunded me without batting an eyelid so they know they are selling rubbish

    I would not buy from them again.
