The Types of Snakes Found in and Around Perth

There are 24 snake species living in and around Perth, and they belong to four distinctive families: blind snakes, pythons, elapid snakes, and sea snakes. Blind snakes are small, slender, and non-venomous. Pythons are much larger but non-venomous. They include the south-west carpet python and Stimson’s python. Sea snakes are only found north of Shark Bay in Western Australia. That leaves elapid snakes, all of which are technically venomous.

Five species of elapid snakes live in the Perth metropolitan area: the dugite, the gwardar, the tiger snake, the mulga snake, and the southern death adder. Of these five, the dugite and tiger snake are the most prevalent. An encounter with either snake can be dangerous, so calling in the experts is important if you see one.

Encountering A Snake

If you encounter a snake around your home or business, it’s important to be careful. While many local snakes are non-venomous, some are dangerous and deadly. Most snake bites occur when people accidentally step on or attempt to catch them. Call in local snake removal experts immediately when you see a snake.

If you ever find a snake on your property, make sure you follow the following advice:

  • Remain calm and try to think rationally
  • Do not approach or aggravate the snake
  • Stand still and back away very slowly
  • Confine the snake to a room, if possible
  • Turn off the lights to settle the snake
  • Contact our licensed snake catchers

Snake Removal FAQs

Are snakes in Perth non venomous?

No, not all snakes in Perth are non-venomous, that’s why it’s important to be vigilant when it comes to snakes. Perth is home to a number of venomous snake species, including the dugite and tiger snake. It is important to be cautious around all snakes and to avoid approaching or handling them, regardless of whether they are venomous or not.

How do I ensure the safe capture of the snake on my property?

It can be very dangerous to attempt to capture a snake on your own property. The most important thing is to avoid any contact with the animal because some species can become aggressive and may even bite if feeling threatened.

The best course of action for safely capturing a snake on your property is to enlist the help of a professional snake catcher. Our pest controllers have experience handling snakes and will be able to operate in a safe manner while also ensuring that the snake isn't hurt during removal.

Which Perth suburbs are snakes more prevalent in?

Snakes can be found in various areas of Perth, including urban, suburban, and rural areas, so it is difficult to say that certain suburbs are more prevalent with snakes than others. However, snakes tend to be more common in areas that provide suitable habitats, such as bushland, wetlands, and parks.

If you live in or near areas with natural habitats, it is a good idea to take precautions to reduce the risk of snake encounters. This includes keeping your property well-maintained and free of debris, sealing gaps and holes in walls and foundations, and avoiding attracting prey species such as rodents.

Is there a fine for killing snakes?

Yes, it is illegal to kill or harm snakes. Killing snakes in Western Australia can result in a big fine or other penalties under the state's wildlife protection laws. Penalties for killing a snake can include fines of up to several thousand dollars.

It is important to remember that snakes play a vital role in the ecosystem and should be treated with respect and caution. If you encounter a snake on your property or in the wild, it is best to leave it alone and contact local wildlife or pest control authorities for assistance with safely removing the snake.

Can you do anything to avoid snakes on your property?

There are several steps you can take to help reduce the likelihood of encountering snakes on your property:

  • Keep your property clean and tidy: Remove any debris, such as piles of wood or leaves, that may provide shelter or hiding places for snakes.
  • Seal gaps and holes: Close off any gaps or holes in walls, foundations, and around pipes to prevent snakes from entering your home.
  • Keep your lawn trimmed: Regularly mow your lawn and keep vegetation trimmed, especially around the edges of your property, to reduce hiding places for snakes.
  • Secure trash and compost: Keep your trash and compost in sealed containers to avoid attracting rodents and other prey species that may attract snakes.

Remember, even with these precautions, it is still possible to encounter snakes on your property. If you do encounter a snake, it is best to leave it alone and contact Aussie Pest Co for assistance with safely removing the snake.
