What to do if you find a snake in your yard

  • Try and remain calm. Snakes are far more afraid of you and usually are just looking for somewhere to escape.
  • Keep children and pets away. By doing this you’re protecting your children and pets while also allowing the snake to feel less threatened.
  • Call 0481 811 855.
  • Watch the snake from a distance. This way you know where the animal is and also able to direct the snake catchers to where to start looking.

Call out fees apply.

Snake Bite First Aid

DO NOT WASH BITE SITE as this will possibly delay treatment at the hospital, as washing will not give the Venom Detection Kits (VDK) a reading to identify what anti-venom is required for treatment.

  • Calm and reassure the person who is bitten
  • Use a heavy Crepe bandage to apply a pressure bandage (the same pressure for a sprained ankle). Start the bandage at the ends of the limb and continue all the way to the shoulder/hip.
  • Mark on top of the bandage the bite location so the Doctor knows where to cut the bandage to obtain a swab for the VDK.
  • Call 000 or 112 on mobiles
  • Remain as still as possible and wait for emergency services to arrive

We recently had a redbelly stuck in a drain near our front door and being a little afraid of snakes called Shaun. He... arrived at our home within 20 mins. Such a nice young man who absolutely loves his reptile friends, he rescued the snake within minutes. He went through the procedure with us in case we ever received a bite and took our snake friend far, far away to release him. We would highly recommend Shaun and Shoalhaven Snake Catchers should you ever require their service.read more

What you can do at home to help keep snakes from residing on your property

The Shoalhaven region is largely made up of farm lands, rural properties and developments that are surrounded by state forest or national parks. These areas are perfect snake habitat. As our endemic species are shy, secretive and well camouflaged animals, you are most likely to only see a small percentage of snakes that pass through your property.
