Signs of Snake

It is rare to see snakes in Singapore, unless your property has a garden or open space near extremely secluded areas. In most cases, snakes are most likely just passing through your garden area.

The common signs to look out for on whether a snake is in your property are: 

  1. Shed skins — snakes shed their worn-out skin about 6 times a year. This process is called moulting. 
  2. Winding trails — can be seen on light dirt or sandy surfaces, particularly across secluded open land areas.

There are certain places where snakes may like to hide on your property:

  1. Secluded open land, field or bush area.
  2. Garden with ponds, wood, rock or rubble piling around.
  3. Garden with un-trimmed long grass.

Reptiles are timid and will usually flee to seek cover if they are detected by people or pets.

Deter Snakes from Entering Your Property

There are a few things you can do to deter snakes:

  1. Trim grass regularly to keep it short.
  2. Keep wood, rock and debris from piling up.
  3. Seal holes that snakes can hide in such as under the sheds, decks and walls.
  4. Place fitting fences or walls around ponds as a deterrent.
