There are many different species of venomous snakes in South East Queensland so if you see a snake, it’s safest to assume that it’s venomous until you find out otherwise.
There are many species of non-venomous snakes in South East Queensland and many times home-owners won’t even realise there’s a snake in their roof or on their property until they see a sure fire sign that a snake is in or around their home.
Be aware that whilst non-venomous snakes won’t kill with a bite they can inflict serious damage if large enough. They can cause death to pets (depending on their size, chickens, birds, cats and small dogs, etc) if they are quick enough to catch them.

Picture the scene. It’s a beautiful day and you and the kids out doing the gardening. Suddenly you come across a clutch of reptile eggs. Typically snakes will lay their eggs in leaf litter or rotten logs so if you have piles of lawn clippings or an open compost heap with lots of organic matter in it, this is prime real estate for a snake. We offer a free service whereby we relocate the eggs to a safe environment.r
If you find a clutch of eggs in a pile of lawn clippings, leaf litter or a compost pile, the first thing you will want to do is slowly back away. Leave the pile undisturbed. You don’t know how recently they were laid and the snake that laid them could still be around.
