Snakes are typically more afraid of humans than we are of them. In most cases, they are moving past your property, and will steer clear of pets and humans. Unless they are provoked, most South African snakes will not be aggressive. South Africa’s main three snake species are African rock python, Cape cobra, and puff adder.
Signs of an infestation: Snakes are usually most active in the warmer seasons, and usually reside in gardens with large wildlife areas. Signs of snakes will usually be shed skins soon after hibernation, and winding trails through sandy surfaces or light dirt.
Risks: Although most snakes are not usually aggressive, some of them can be extremely venomous when provoked or when they feel threatened.
Control Measures: A'Africa Pest Prevention offers a range of fast and effective pest control methods that are safe around your family and pets to target specific snake species.
DIY: Snakes should be dealt with by a professional with specific skills and training. You can prevent snakes from inhabiting your garden and home by keeping the grass short, clearing low-growing shrubs and plants, rockeries, wood or log piles, and debris. Fill holes under walls, sheds and patios and erect close fitting walls or fences around ponds.
