    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.

    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

    Snake Removal

    Shoalhaven Snake Catchers provide a prompt and efficient snake removal service to the entire Shoalhaven region and surrounds including Basin View, Berry, Broughton Vale, Callala Bay, Cambewarra, Gerringong, Jervis Bay, Kangaroo Valley, Kiama, Milton, Nowra, Vincentia and many more.

    The Shoalhaven region has an abundance of National Parks and State Forests and with new housing developments being built alongside them, it increases the likelihood of crossing paths with native wildlife.

    Snakes being native wildlife are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, 1974 and the harm of any native wildlife draws significant fines and possible imprisonment. Not only is there a at risk of a fine for interfering with wildlife, there is also a risk of obtaining a bite from the animal.
    Majority of snake bites in Australia are due to the individual trying to catch or kill an animal
