Summer Awareness - Snakes at Ashbury

December 2021 | Events & Local Area

Snakes love the warmer summer months just as much as you!

With warm summer days now here, snakes will be more active in the vegetation, wetlands, and open areas of Ashbury

Residents are advised to be aware of their surroundings and proceed with caution should they see a snake.

The City of Greater Geelong Council has a free professional snake removal service available that we recommend residents use if they spot a snake within the estate.

If you do come across a snake on Council land or at your residential property, leave it alone and immediately contact Council on 03 5272 5272, and they'll arrange for the snake to be removed by a professional catcher.

More information can be found on the council website

Anyone who encounters a snake is advised to:

  • Be aware, alert, and do not approach a snake
  • Safely remove any people or pets from the area where the snake was sighted
  • Do not try to capture the snake
  • Call the Council or a professional snake catcher to remove the snake from the area
  • If someone does get bitten by a snake, call 000 immediately
  • If an animal gets bitten by a snake, take it to the vet immediately
