What to do if you find a snake in your home
- If the snake is in your home please don’t try and catch it yourself. Remove all children and pets from the room and call an experienced snake catcher to help you out.
- Please don’t assume you know what type of snake you are dealing with, even the most experienced wildlife carers can get this wrong. Only an experienced, licenced snake catcher should be trusted to identify a snake.
- If the snake is in your roof or in your yard the best advice is to leave it alone!
- Snakes have a very important role to play, and they will keep the mice and rats away!
- Snakes are very territorial animals so chances are if you remove one another will return in its place.
- Finally, these beautiful animals are not vicious; they will only bite if they feel threatened so keep your pets and children away from the snake until it has moved on.
