Some key points to remember about living in an area with snakes:
If you see a snake - keep calm and try to move yourself, anyone with you and your pets away from the snake.
Never touch or attempt to capture or hurt snakes – instead call DELWP on 136 186 for further advice, or Call a Licensed Snake Catcher in Your Area:

Have a spring clean - clean up around the house and cut lawns regularly – snakes are attracted to shelter such as piles of rocks and timber, sheets of metal, or building materials
Undertake first aid training, ensure your first aid kit contains several compression bandages, and if someone is bitten, call 000 immediately
Snakes are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975. It is illegal to capture, kill or harm them. Bites can occur when people try to kill snakes.
