    Snake Removal

    If we successfully locate and remove a snake we always release it in parkland within 5 kilometres of the capture sight as is required by law.

    Our aim is always to reduce the likelihood of snakes returning to our homes so we select the safest location available.

    These creatures are vital to our ecosystem as they assist to reduce the population of pests including rats and mice. Snakes will generally avoid contact with humans and their first instinct is always to escape. However if disturbed, surprised or threatened they are likely to attack.

    Our aim is to remove a snake from public or private property in the shortest possible time with regard to reducing the likelihood of injury to persons, pets and the snake itself. Call us for prompt and professional snake control as soon as possible after any sighting. Often people mistake lizards for snakes. We’d prefer that you assume it’s a snake and call us anyway.

    If bitten you should always assume that the snake is poisonous, apply first aid and seek urgent medical assistance.
