Snake Catcher Update March – May
June 13, 2017

Our snake catchers were kept busy throughout March with snakes taking advantage of the tail end of the summer weather! Heading into April and May both sightings and callouts continually slowed although when the sun did decide to shine we had short, sharp periods of activity. May was a month of much scrambling through roof […]

February Snake Catcher Update
March 10, 2017

Snake sightings in Brisbane remained high throughout February with callouts for our snake catchers both day and night! February unfortunately saw our snake catchers called to a number of domestic residences to find carpet pythons consuming domestic cats and small domestic dogs. Although fairly rare it serves as an important reminder to us to be […]

January Snake Catcher Update
February 18, 2017

In January, Brisbane was heatwave city with temperatures regularly in the mid to high 30’s! This has meant our busiest periods have been from mid-afternoon all the way through to mid-morning with only sporadic mid-day callouts for snakes sheltering from the heat in garages and sheds.   Red-bellied black snakes, common tree snakes and yellow-faced […]

December Snake Catcher Update
January 12, 2017

December has been scorching hot with regular storms creating very favorable conditions for our scaly friends and keeping snake catchers on their toes.   We have been getting an ever-widening variety of snake species turn up as the mercury has risen.

September Brisbane Snake Catcher Update

With warm weather and sporadic rain making for some very humid days over September our snake catchers have had quite a few days at mid-summer busy levels!

August Brisbane Snake Catcher Update
September 9, 2016

With temperatures trending upwards resulting in a particularly warm and humid August our Brisbane snake catchers have been kept very busy.   A notable capture from last month resulted in 6 tree snakes being removed from a single felled hollow tree. This made for some great pics!   The most common snake Brisbane residents have […]

July Brisbane Snake Catcher Update
August 4, 2016

The temperature in SE QLD has been highly variable this July making life interesting for our Brisbane snake catchers.   Generally July is the slowest month for snake sightings and call outs, which has held true for much of the month. However, we have had a few unseasonably warm periods with snakes taking advantage and […]

June Brisbane Snake Catcher Update
July 2, 2016

SE Queensland has been incredibly cold of late – more closely resembling my native Wellington than the sunshine state capital!   Despite the continued drop in temperature we are continuing to receive regular call outs to all Brisbane suburbs. The cold weather means you can almost set your clock to when the snakes will be […]
