When it comes to living in Brisbane, it doesn’t get much better. Great weather, amazing local produce and plenty of open bushy places to have a BBQ or enjoy the outdoors. With these open bushy places that are scattered all throughout the Brisbane north region comes animals and unfortunately some of these are venomous snakes.
What to do if you see a venomous snake
The best thing you can do if you see any type of snake – be it venomous or not, is to leave it well alone. Snakes usually will only bother you if they’re provoked as they don’t see us as a food source (we’re too big to eat). So if you see a snake in or around your property, the best thing you can do is just leave it alone, keep a safe distance and keep an eye on it until a trained professional arrives.
There are many types of venomous snakes in and around the northside of Brisbane and if you see a snake, the safest thing to do is assume that any snake you see is potentially venomous.
Step One - Remove everyone from danger
When dealing with a venomous snake it’s extremely important that you remove everyone, including yourself, kids and pets/animals away from danger if it’s safe to do so. Any Brisbane snake catcher has been around enough snake to know they can be unpredictable when provoked so you will want to ensure you make slow movements if you find yourself close to a snake.
Once everyone is out of danger of the snake you can move on to step two.
Note - There are many different species of venomous snakes in South East Queensland so if you see a snake, it’s safest to assume that it’s venomous until you find out otherwise.
Step Two - Seal the room, shed or garage
Many times when we are called out to catch a snake in Brisbane it’s hiding in a junk pile, shed or garage. If you find yourself face to face with an Eastern Brown, Red Belly Black or Death Adder, etc back away slowly and shut the door if possible.
If it’s possible, keep an eye on the area you saw the snake to make sure it doesn’t escape or go to another area (this is sometimes difficult as snakes are experts at hiding and escaping undetected).
Note - being a Brisbane Snake Catcher we come into contact with many different species of venomous snakes and take our customers safety and the welfare of the snake incredibly seriously.
Step Three - Call us on 0407 129 260
When everyone is safe and you’ve managed to seal off the room, shed or area the snake was seen, it’s time to call in a professional snake control service. DO NOT try to catch or kill the snake yourself as most bites occur when people with no experience try to kill or catch a snake. (It’s also worth noting that all Australian native snakes are protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and it’s an offence to injure or kill them.)
