Temperatures are rising and snakes are becoming more active after a long period of hibernation; they are hungry, and in search of food.
October to May is snakebite season.
Watch where you step and pay close attention while enjoying outdoor activities. We would also remind pet owners to keep an eye on their domestic pets as they may fall prey to snakes. Keeping your home and yard clutter free can help immensely.
Snakes are generally not aggressive, as long as they don't feel threatened.
Should you come across a snake, keep at least 3 - 5 m between you and the snake at all times; do not corner them. Please stay calm and keep your eyes on the snake, if possible, until the snake catcher arrives.
