Beware Of Snakes

If you were a snake then this is the time of year you’ve been waiting
for. With the weather warming up you have the energy to move about
again and you are very hungry so you are heading out to look for tasty
stuff like mice, frogs and lizards.

That means you might come into
contact with humans, and if you feel cornered then you might bite them,
and for us people that is bad news. So, it’s time to be cautious, take
precautions, and to be aware of what first aid is required.

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS)
urges people to be snake aware and give the animals plenty of space as
warmer temperatures are enticing snakes out of hibernation.

NPWS Far South Coast Area Manager Tim Shepherd says, “If people want
to keep snakes out of their backyards, I would advise them to keep the
area tidy and the lawn mowed, so snakes will not take shelter in grass
and under items.

“Wear sturdy shoes and jeans or other long, thick trousers in areas
where snakes are likely to be to greatly reduce the chances of being
bitten by a snake.

“Snakes are protected by law and play an important role in the
environment by keeping certain species such as mice under control.

“If a snake enters your yard, leave it alone and generally it will move on,” Mr Shepherd said.

Safeguard yourself against snakes by:

  • Treating all snakes as venomous
  • Giving snakes room to escape
  • Keeping gardens clear of clutter
  • Not attracting mice as they attract snakes
  • Slashing grass along fences
  • Mowing lawns regularly
  • Sealing gaps under doors and holes in walls
  • Never trying to catch or kill a snake
