What methods are used to capture snakes?
Removing and relocating snakes happens a lot more than people think. Businesses and homes surrounded by bushland usually have more snake sightings then most and if there is an attractant on the premises, the snakes can become quite a pest. As snakes are a protected species there are many laws that need to be followed when capturing a snake, one of these is that you need to have a valid Snake Catchers Licence to legally catch and release a snake in a safe manner and in a safe area.
Snake Catchers are specially trained on snake behaviour and how to catch them without harming them. It is extremely important to let the professionals catch the snake and not try to remove the snake from the premises yourself. Due to the alarm associated with seeing a snake, trying to remove it yourself could mean that you could easily kill the snake without even thinking about it.
The removal of snakes is always an extremely urgent request and requires us to be onsite as quickly as we can to remove the snake. Flick Anticimex uses qualified snake sub-contractors for snake removals at most of our branches. Some of our branches don’t have a qualified snake contractor and in these instances, the relevant wildlife department for your state can be called to arrange removal of the snake.
