Following the unfortunate death of a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Personnel, Lance Corporal Ogah Bercy, who died of complications from snakebite in her toilet at the NAF Base, ….we decided to educate you guys on how to prevent snakes from entering your WC at home or in the office. Questions on how snakes and other reptiles manage to enter our bathrooms and toilets have been raised and asked by many across social media. It’s not very common for snakes to be found in toilets. More plumbers have seen snakes under houses or in a roof cavity than in the toilet but however, snakes can get into a toilet through an opening in the sewer. The best way to prevent a snake from making its way into your toilet is to make your home less attractive to the snake in the first place. 1. Keep windows and sliding doors in the bathroom closed or ensure the screens are fully intact so a snake can’t slide its way in. 2. Prevent a mouse or rat infestation in your home with the correct rodent protection. Snakes will follow the food trail, so if you have mice or rats near or in your house, get rid of them faster. 3. Always make sure that all the bushes around your house are properly cleared and well burnt so as to prevent any rodents or reptiles from harbouring around the house. 4. Another thing you should take note of is to always ensure you fumigate your toilet sink regularly. There are special pesticides that are made specifically for this purpose. 5. Keep your toilet lid closed at all times and you can also make use of a flat tile to cover your bathroom filter when you’re not in the bathroom so as to stop any further movement of the reptile through the pipes and also ensure that all pipes are well fixed and closed. SNAKE AND SALT Look for small SALT at least a cup and pour it into your WC, it will serve as poison to any dangerous reptiles around your soak-away pit. Hope you find this helpful.
