Snake Catcher Hope Island, Paradise Point, Sovereign Island and Coombabah

Often considered by most people as highly developed and not typical localities for snakes, the snake catcher Hope Island, Paradise Point, Sovereign Island and Coombabah regularly attends these suburbs for snake encounters. A number of species occur here however the consistent captures of the highly venomous Eastern Brown Snake especially at Hope Island is room for concern for some residents. Amongst the non-venomous species, the Common Tree Snake is also a regular capture within homes and garden structures. With one of our operators based in very close proximity to these suburbs a quick response is likely if the snake catcher Gold Coast isn’t on a job further away.

It is essential that the snake or the area it was last seen is continually observed to ensure the snake catcher has every probability to catch your snake. Snakes are cryptic by nature and a watchful eye is a necessity to ensure the snake is located and captured by the snake catcher.

Coombabah

Carpet Python CoombabahThis Carpet Python as found on a property located in Coombabah on the Gold Coast earlier this month. The call was dispatched at 7:45am with the relocation of the snake being completed by 8:30am. Carpet Pythons will often reside in roof spaces amongst suburban areas due to the seclusion and warmth provided by these locations. Carpet Pythons are notorious free-loaders, however they are excellent at keeping the small rodent population at bay throughout your home. Carpet Pythons generally keep to themselves although if provoked can give a nasty bite that can cause severe lacerations and puncture wounds. Therefore, it is recommended that a trained and experienced professional snake catcher be contacted to handle a situation such as this involving any snake species encountered.
