Snake breeding and egg laying season in Queensland
The weather in Ipswich, Logan, Brisbane and surrounds is getting hotter and hotter, and snakes are coming out; and homeowners need to be aware of that. In fact, at N&S Snake Catchers we have increased calls for snakes from homes in the past few months alone spanning from early October to mid November.
There’s a reason for that. In October it’s snake breeding season, and that means males are very active.
However, right now you will find lots of snakes in Ipswich, Brisbane, Logan and surrounds because males are trying to find females. That’s why you will find not one, but two. Female snakes will lay on their eggs up to 60 days.
In fact, according to the Australian law,you are not allowed to touch a snake without permits. You will have to deal with fines from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. What you must understand is that snakes will rarely attack people. Around 95% of all bites tend to happen when people are provoking the animal andthey try to kill or catch it.
Plus, even if you see snakes in your home, that doesn’t mean they all have venom. There are lots of non-venomous snakes in Australia. This is why you need to call a professional snake catcher because they can identify the type of snake.
Is it possible for a snake to kill your dog? It can happen if you’re dealing with a venomous snake. That’s why you need to keep your dog away from snakes at all times.
The reason why most snakes are moving to a new location is that their habitats is destroyed. New estates have their trees and grass cut down, so animals have to move away. Usually what happens is snakes go to houses that are already built.
If you see a snake, you need to talk with a professional snake catcher to remove it as fast as possible. A good idea is to stay a safe distance away from the snake as soon as you see it and keep an eye on it until the snake catcher arrives let a professional take crae of the sanke removal Snake catchers will catch and release the snake into a natural habitat and away from your home. The snake catcher will know how to handle this type of situation. Which is why it’s recommended to avoid catching snakes on your own!
