Snake Removal Mandurah - Pest Control Mandurah

Snakes play an important part of our eco-system within the Mandurah area and most assists in maintaining our rodent population. Pest Control Mandurah provide fast, safe and legal snake management for the relocation of snakes.

When it comes to snakes in Mandurah, the most commonly found snakes are dugites and tiger snakes. Tiger snakes are most commonly found in vegetated areas and wetlands. Dugites are most commonly found in more arid bushland areas. Both species feed primarily on small mammals (rodents), frogs and lizards. Snakes are active during the day and in the warmer months of the year, they are also active at night time.

Signs of a bed bug infestation

What to do when you see a snake on your property?

The most likely time for people to encounter snakes in their garden is spring when the males are out looking for females to mate with. 

If you see a snake in your garden or house, do not try to catch or kill the snake. Walk away from it slowly and keep an eye on it from a safe distance (several metres away). Keep your pets safely away from it and the snake will usually move on in its own time. Snakes don’t want to be near humans any more than humans generally want to be near snakes.

If the snake has decided to stay around, and you really want it removed, you will need to contact Pest Control Mandurah to have it removed. If the snake is inside the house, close the door of the room it is in and place a towel under the door to prevent it from exiting before you call.

Snakes play a very important role in the Australian environment and are protected under environmental legislation, so you should not attempt to harm or remove them yourself. Most people who get bitten by snakes do so when attempting to remove them.

My pet has been bitten by a snake, what should I do?

In the warmer summer months, snakes become much more active and pet owners need to be careful and safeguard their pets from snake bites, plus look out for the warning signs should an animal be bitten.

Dogs will often try to chase or kill snakes resulting in snake bites usually to the dog’s face and legs. Cats, being hunters and chasing anything that moves, are also quite susceptible to snake bites.

The sort of reaction your pet has to a snake bite is determined by a number of factors: the type of snake, the amount of venom injected and the site of the snake bite. Generally the closer the bite is to the heart the quicker the venom spreads to the rest of the body. In addition, at the beginning of summer, snakes’ venom glands are fuller and their bites are much more severe.

The tiger and brown snake are responsible for most of the snake bites in domestic pets. The tiger snakes have a bite that can be fatal to not only pets but humans. Brown snake venom is milder than the tiger snake’s. These snakes have a toxin that causes paralysis and also have an agent in them that uses up all the clotting factors that helps to stop your pet from bleeding. Tiger snakes also have a toxin that breaks down muscle causing damage to the kidneys.

Signs of snake bite include:

  • Sudden weakness followed by collapse
  • Shaking or twitching of the muscles and difficulty blinking
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control
  • Dilated pupils
  • Paralysis
  • Blood in urine.

If you think your pet has been bitten by a snake you should keep them calm and quiet and take them to a vet immediately. The chances of recovery are much greater if your pet is treated early, with some pets making a recovery within 48 hours.
