In the warmer summer months, snakes become more active. It is crucial that we are careful to safeguard our pets and family from snake bites.
Snakes on council property
If you spot a snake on council property such a at a playground or sports ground, keep an eye on its location from a safe distance and call us on 5366 7100.
Snakes on private property
If you see a snake on your property do not try to catch or kill it. Walk away from the snake slowly and keep an eye on it from a safe distance. Ensure that you keep your pets and family away from the snake. If the snake is inside the house, close the door of the room it is in and place a towel under the door.
