The importance of calling a professional snake catcher in Brisbane

If you live in the Brisbane area—or anywhere in South East Queensland—it’s always a good idea to have a professional Brisbane snake catcher on your speed dial. Here are a few reasons why:

  • The most dangerous snakes in the world call this area home. There are more than 3,000 snake species in the world. South East Queensland is only home to 27 of those varieties, so you might think our chances of hosting the world’s most dangerous species are rather slim. Not so: three of the top five most venomous snakes on the planet call this area home, including the Eastern Brown—the second most venomous land snake in the world.
  • Most snakebite deaths are avoidable. While this area is home to deadly snakes, that doesn’t mean people can’t coexist with them safely and peacefully. Snakes don’t seek out conflict. Ninety-five percent of all snake-on-human bites occur when people try to catch or kill snakes with no training on how to do so safely. Calling for professional snake removal in Brisbane is a far better option than risking a potentially deadly bite.
  • Snake catching requires a license. Many people don’t know that snake catching requires a license. Our team consists exclusively of catchers who have gone through the proper training process and earned the appropriate licenses to remove and relocate snakes and other protected animals. This license is required under the National Conservation Act of 2006.

What to avoid doing if you’ve spotted a snake or reptile

If you do encounter a snake or some other uninvited reptile guest in your home or around your yard, be careful to avoid these common mistakes:

  • Trying to catch or kill the snake yourself. As we’ve already established, you should not, under any circumstances, attempt snake removal on your own. There are people trained to perform safe reptile removal in Brisbane.
  • Not calling for help. If a snake has bitten you, call 000 immediately. While not all snakes are venomous, that doesn’t mean you should wait to feel any symptoms before calling for help. The sooner you dial 000, the better chances you will have of making a full recovery.
  • Not keeping an eye on the snake. If possible, try to monitor the snake’s location as you call and wait for our reptile catchers in Brisbane. Keep a safe distance and get all pets and people out of the immediate vicinity of the snake, but keep tabs on it. Snakes are small and can hide in many spots—particularly inside a house. If the snake slithers out of sight, it reduces our likelihood of catching it.

Benefits Of Our Snake Removal Service In North & South Brisbane

Why is it so important to call a Brisbane snake catcher to remove any snakes you might spot in your home? Here are a few reasons:

  • Snakes are elusive. Outside, merely avoiding snakes is a good idea because they will lose interest in you if you don’t threaten them. If the snake is inside, though, then it could slither into any crack, crevice, crawlspace, closet, drawer, bag, shoe, boot or any other hiding place you could imagine. When you don’t know where the snake is, you can’t avoid it, which makes it more dangerous. Therein lies the importance of removing any snake from your home as soon as possible.
  • Snakes are deadly. Twenty-seven species of snake call the South East Queensland region home. Three-quarters of those are venomous, and three rank in the top five for the most venomous snakes in the world. If you spot a snake in this area, assume it is dangerous.
  • Snakes are difficult to identify and catch. When you call us for snake removal in Brisbane, we will start by identifying the snake, so we know the level of risk. From there, we will employ the best strategies to capture and remove the snake. These processes are both more difficult than most people realise and should not be attempted by non-professionals.

South East Queensland snakes are dangerous. If you encounter one in your home, you need to know that there is someone in your corner who can deal with the snake swiftly, safely and smartly. At SEQ Snake Catchers, we fill that role. Contact us today to hire our snake catcher in Brisbane.
