Snakes are rare in Singapore, especially with the urban landscape that does not provide the most optimal environment for snakes to breed. However, there are still many cases of snake sightings in Singapore, as these pests somehow find a way to survive in our concrete jungle. With their small and flexible bodies, snakes are capable of travelling through water pipes and hiding in small crevices undetected, which makes them difficult to get rid of without the proper equipment. They are also able to camouflage in foliage, bushes and trees, remaining hidden while people continue with their usual activities.
Wild snakes like the Python can grow up to many metres long and some can be dangerous like the cobras. As such, it is crucial that Singaporeans contact a reliable snake control service when they encounter snakes in their homes or in public places, so as to prevent them from causing unnecessary alarm or harm to other people.
Encountering a Snake
While it may be tempting to capture the snake yourself, it is not recommended that you attempt to do so without professional training or the necessary tools. Snake rescue is not something that should be attempted by amateurs as some snakes, like the Equatorial Spitting Cobra and the King Cobra, can be aggressive and readily attack humans once threatened.
Furthermore, without sufficient knowledge and experience in handling snakes, Singaporeans may panic under high stress situations, which would delay the snake control procedures. As such, the best strategy that one should take when encountering a snake is to contact a reliable pest control service to handle the snake in the fastest and most effective manner.
Nevertheless, there are a few things that you can do before you contact the pest control service. The first thing you should always do when you encounter a snake is to keep children and pets away from the snake. Do not, for any reason at all, attack or approach the snake as it may get aggressive towards you and attack you. If you encounter the snake indoors, shut all windows and doors except for those that lead outside to guide the snake out from your house. After that, immediately call the relevant authorities and a Singapore snake control service to effectively handle the situation.
