Typically after a bout of rain we tend to see more snakes in Brisbane.
Snake catchers are generally more busy with call-outs from residents that have found a variety of snakes in Brisbane and need them removed
after a few days of rain.
Often the reason starts with more insects being on the go after rain attracting the lizards, frogs and toads which then in return bring out the snakes in Brisbane who are hunting them.
Here in Brisbane we can always count on the summer season with it’s hot and stormy weather to bring out a variety of snakes.
Many encountered are not venomous though, such as the commonly found Carpet Python.
We recommend leaving them alone, and only remove them in situations such as small pets or children in danger.
Having said that, we do realize and empathize with the residents that have a genuine phobia of snakes and we are always here to help with snake ID, advice etc.

Snakes in Brisbane are an important part of our eco-system and without them, Australia would soon be over run with rats and mice.
It’s actually quite rare to spot one, so if you’re not too scared, enjoy the experience knowing they will not harm you if you leave them alone.
