SNAKES are out and in force, which means people should be vigilant, especially in hot sheltered areas.
Snake catchers are advising people if they see a snake, to stand still with very little movement of the upper body.
People should take a deep breath and take steps backwards while still keeping an eye on the snake.
In the home, it is best to have door stoppers blocking any entrance, no matter how small, so snakes don’t feel the air coming in from the house.
Also watch your pets.
People should leave any snake alone and contact a snake catcher.
