Snakes are a very common problem in Australia and while most of them are not exceptionally dangerous, there are some that are deadly. Snakes will generally prefer rural areas. sheltered grassland areas, or forested areas. Some of the most common reasons why snakes will infest a building are to find food, shelter, or to avoid flooding. If you come in contact with a snake, you should proceed with caution because some of them might cause injuries when they feel threatened.
Although most snakes are friendly and not dangerous, we recommend that you seek professional assistance if you spot one on your property. By contacting a local pest control company, you make sure that the snakes are removed in an adequate fashion, and you will also learn whether you are dealing with venomous snakes or not. A trained specialist will know how to stop and handle the snake infestation without putting anyone at risk while doing so.
In order to prevent a snake infestation, you must avoid planting too many tall plants or trees next to your property, and you should remove any ground-level sources of water. You can read our Year-round Gardening Guide to learn what other plants you can choose for your garden.
Additionally, you might want to ensure that other pests such as mice or rats are not present on your property because they might attract snakes. You could also choose to build a snake fence around your property to prevent the snakes from getting in.
Australians are well-known for dreading the sight of a cockroach skittering around their homes, or finding out that their property is being destroyed by termites. While some less destructive and less dangerous pests such as ants can be removed without the help of a pest control team, others should never be approached by someone who is not professionally trained. Having cockroaches or any other type of pest is always a sign that you should hire a pest control specialist.
