I Killed This Snake Near My Toilet At Midnight, Help Needed (Photo) by Designer123: 12:59am On May 14
Early this morning (around 12:02 am), I saw this snake on my lobby close to my toilet. I don't know where it came out from but there is a hole on my toilet where I usually see cockroaches. There is also an ant hole close to the toilet door. I don't know if it came out from any of those holes.

Also, does any one know the characteristics of this snake? Is it poisonous?

Do you think the snake offspring will be in my house?

This is the first time I am seeing snake in my house (the house is 11 years old). What can I use to repel snakes around my house?

Please help, I really need to address this. There is a 3weeks old baby on the other apartment. Thanks.

@Op firstly, there are rats in your house, there's a need to rid your house of rats "number 1 thing that attracts snakes". 2. This snake chase a rat into your soak away and couldn't find its way out, so it follow the only place where with its forked tongue sense oxygen, which is your toilet bowl. Many do believe that the water in the closet go all along to the soak away, NO it ends right after the U-bend that's why if you open the chamber at the back you find it dry. 3 get bottles of sniper and empty it into your toilet bowl and flush at least twice to kill other crawling stuffs breeding in your soak away. 4. Your 2 soak away pit are connected together, pls get a plumber to disconnect it, or expect more crawling visitors plus you may find out you spend more treating malaria as you will have mosquitoes and other insects infestation as result of your connected soak away.

This is great. Thank you very much sir.
I really do not understand that 2 soak away part. There are two apartments in the house. One soak away each and they are far from each other. I have been spraying chemicals. The chemical will kill the cockroaches and worms enmasse, but they will still come back later.
I will still pour more chemicals and cover the holes tomorrow and I will also yield to your other advices.
Can you throw more light on that soak away part and do you think the snake offsprings will be in my house? Thanks.

That snake is probably a loner that chased rats into one of the soak away, but you can't totally ignore the fact that there may be more. The chemical will kill anything in the soak away that, but like you said they'll always come back. Best bet is to call a plumber to check if the soak away and waste are connected. You need to disconnect it, if connected. And going by your experience I am 100% sure they're connected. But professionally the two shouldn't be connected, as the waste is nothing but a breeding colony for mosquitoes, roaches and insects. The two should be runned with separate pipes.vThat's the only way to stop this unwanted visitors.

Its most likely poisonous because of the color combination and skin texture. A close up picture would help identify it better.
But it looks like a cobra or a mamba.

There is a rule of thumb I always tell people to follow.
If a rat can enter your house, then a snake can enter too.

Block all holes, keep the environment clean, clear all bushes around.
Make sure your fence doesn't have holes, cement the top of the fence if it isn't cemented.
Dispose your waste as frequently as possible. They attract rats and rats attract snakes.
Fumigate often, not just inside, but outside as well.


I heard bitter kola repels them . Not sure if it does.

I read somewhere that garlic helps, lemon grass does too

Thank God you found it.For it to swallow 2 rats who knows how long it had lived in your place.The swallows made it sluggish so it was a good thing .
Get someone to fumigate the house and then check your windows and doors and plumbing works for gaps and holes.

Try and block those holes you suspect it might have come in from. Use cement and fill it
