A Brisbane/Queensland homeowner walked into the bathroom, flipped on the light switch and saw a very large snake dangling from the light fixture on the ceiling. This happened only weeks after another homeowner in Morayfield, North of Brisbane, discovered a large 12 foot-long snake resting on a bed in a spare room. This doesn’t just happen in Australia! Snakes in America are actually very good climbers, too, slithering up inside walls. While having one drop out of a light fixture in the ceiling is rare, it does happen. Finding a snake on an upstairs bathroom floor or bedroom is more common. Snakes also tend to congregate in basements or inside walls during the cold winter months, alarming homeowners. Whether you discover a snake hanging from a light fixture, a den of snakes in the basement, or a snake on the floor, garage or driveway, you are safest when you have Allstate Animal Control send a trusted local contractor to your home or business to get rid of the snakes. Snake bites must always be taken extremely seriously, because most people aren’t aware if they have been bitten by a venomous snake or not.
