Snakes, be aware!


At about this time every year, as the temperature warms up, the snakes around Cairns become more active. As a result there are far more sighting of snakes in residential areas and I thought it would be a good idea to get the most up to date information on how to deal with them.

I spoke with Cairns snake catcher Matt Hagan who explained common sense goes a long way in dealing with snakes. Matt says if a snake is spotted stay away and call a professional to remove or if you are bitten, call an ambulance immediately and apply a compression bandage.
