Snake season has begun

palestine viper

Vigilence, awareness and composure; these comprise the main seasonal recipe for a safe and pleasant summer

The activity level of snakes in nature in Israel increases in the summer, as does the risk of meeting a snake while hiking in nature on even in our backyard.

Among all the snakes active in our region, the Palestine viper is the only venomous snake! (from Be’er Sheva to Mt. Hermon, except for the country’s east). The other snakes active in our region are not dangerous to humans at all.

The Palestine viper is attracted to our yards mainly due to rats. In order to reduce the risk of a viper entering the yard, it is important to keep it clean – to remove junk that can be a hiding place for snakes, and any food scraps that attract rats – mostly fruit on the ground and cat food.

What to do if you find a snake?

In the open landscape – stay calm and distance yourself from the snake.

In the house or yard – first, stay calm and call a licensed snake catcher. At the same time, you should keep a safe distance from the snake, but also maintain eye contact with it as much as possible. It is important to follow the snake from a distance until the snake catcher arrives, in order to increase the chance of the snake being found.

Whatever happens, do not try to harm the snake! Many snake bites occur when people try to harm the snake. Similarly, harming a snake is a criminal offence.

Please remember - the number of snake bites in Israel each year is very low. Similarly, the number of deaths from snake bites is negligible.
