Let's talk Snake Safety!
Can you believe that snake season is already here?
I actually saw a snake over the weekend and is what prompted me to write this blog.
Snake safety is outside my scope of practice, so I’ve called in Gianni from Hodgson’s Snakes to educate us all on what to do if we see a snake.
When you see a snake, never approach it or try to scare it off. This can provoke the snake to try and defend itself.
Have someone watch the snake from a safe distance 100% of the time
This is crucial. Snakes are very fast and can disappear in a matter of seconds, even in short grass, their colouring can also make them blend in to sticks and rocks etc. If the snake disappears, relocating it can be a very difficult and sometimes an unlikely mission.
Keep your distance
Keep vulnerable family members away
If the snake is in your home
When to call a snake catcher?
You can call a snake catcher at any time for general advice, we are always happy to talk about snakes. Anytime you see a snake is also a good time to call a snake catcher. Not every snake needs to be removed from a property. There are a lot of factors that are used to determine if the snake should be removed.
