Ever wonder what we come across when cleaning gutters? apart from the sludge, debris or leaf matter.
YES SNAKES, LOTS OF THEM.
Gutter Vac Sunshine Coast expert Brett was out on a job in Nambour when he came across this long snakeskin, the snake was nowhere to be seen on this occasion. Not sure how long the snake is, maybe 3 metres or more in length going by this skin.
Gutters and roof voids can be the perfect environment for snakes as they have everything to survive and thrive, including food, moisture, warmth and shade. The collection of leaf matter, dirt and other debris also creates a small ecosystem for insects, rodents, and vermin, which then attracts snakes that love to sleep in your roof.
Having a full gutter can cause damage to your property and increase your maintenance costs, but it can also create a nice home for snakes, something nobody wants!
If you spot a snake in the gutter or around your house it is best to leave it alone and call your Local Snake catcher. Gutter-Vac can help remove debris in gutters and help reduce the change of snakes in your roof.
