  • Do not put your hands or feet in holes, hollow logs or rock cleavages.
  • Wear closed shoes.
  • Control vegetation around your home.
  • Keep the compound clean and tidy.
  • Keep water source, poultry and other farm animals a safe distance from the house.
  • Use raised beds and mosquito nets when sleeping.
  • Be alert at all times in the bush, especially in the early morning when snakes are more likely to be sunning
  • Use a torch when walking around at night.
