Snakes are simple creatures – they want food and a sunny place to rest – and somethings, the perfect spot for those things is in your home. Although snakes occasionally crop up in inconvenient places, they typically don’t like occupying the same place as people, so when they spot you, they’ll probably hide somewhere dark and safe. This skittish behaviour can make it difficult to know whether or not you have a snake in your home, but there are signs you can look for to indicate whether or not you’re sharing a living space with a scaly tenant. SEQ Snake Catchers are your local 24/7 emergency snake catchers committed to providing safe, gentle relocations across Ipswich. We’re committed to ensuring Logan families and pets are safe and that snakes live in habitats away from humans where they can thrive. If you spot the telltale signs and are wondering how to get rid of a snake in Ipswich, our team of experts is here to help.
6 Signs You Might Be Sharing Your Home With A Snake
Snakes can be tricky to find, but they always tend to leave evidence behind to indicate they’re close by. Here are six signs to look out for when inspecting your property.
Shedding is a vital part of a snake’s growth and development, and unlike captive snakes, wild ones won’t typically eat their shed. So, you might see discarded snakeskins near where the snake is living.
If a snake has made its home in your walls, ceiling, or plumbing, you may hear it moving around at night. Nests of newly hatched snakes tend to make quite a bit of noise, so it’s a good indicator of snakes on the property. You may also hear unusual movements coming from gardens or shrubbery as a snake makes its way through.
Snake faeces look like bird poop, so they can be easy to miss. However, snake poop tends to have small bones or feathers from digested prey, so you can easily differentiate between bird and snake droppings.
As creatures that slither along the ground, snakes leave a very identifiable track. If you notice snake tracks around your property, call in the experts at SEQ Snake Catchers. If you think the snake may be inside the house, leave plain flour in places that get a lot of heat and direct sun. If a snake is in the home, it’ll leave tracks in the flour.
It sounds weird, but snakes have a very distinctive smell. It’s quite musky, and people have likened the aroma of venomous snakes to rotting cucumber. If you smell something unusual near dark, confined spaces, it might be a snake.
It’s a bit obvious, but if you physically see a snake, there’s a high chance it made its home somewhere nearby. If you spot a snake in or around your home, don’t attempt to kill it or move it yourself. Instead, call the experts at SEQ Snake Catchers.
