Snakes play an important part of our eco-system within the Perth metropolitan area, and most desirably assist in maintaining our rodent population. With ten snake handlers on staff, Allpest provide fast, safe and legal relocation of snakes.
Information & Safety
When it comes to snakes, the most commonly found snakes in Perth are dugites and tiger snakes. Tiger snakes are found in vegetated areas in wetlands whereas dugites are most commonly found in the drier bush land areas. Both species feed primarily on small mammals (rodents), frogs and lizards. Snakes are active during the day and in the warmer periods of the year they are also active at night time.
Pest Control WA
- Snakes can be venomous, it is important to be calm and think rationally when in a snake situation.
- Most snake bites occur when a snake is accidentally stepped on or an untrained or inexperienced person attempts to catch the snake.
- Do not approach the snake or aggravate it in any way.
- Snakes will most often settle and calm down in darkness, if possible confine the snake to an area and turn off lights if in the room.
- If a snake is cornered, it will attempt to leave the area the same way it came in. If you are standing between the snake and the exit then it may seem as though the snake is coming towards you, when in fact it is just trying to leave.
- Stand still. Snakes are used to being in the bush where not a lot moves, any movement will make the snake nervous and more likely to bite in defence.
- As a predator, snakes have fast accurate reflexes. If a snake strikes at you but misses, the likelihood is that the snake has missed you as a warning strike.
