Summer is when slithering creatures crawl out of their dwelling and haunt air-conditioned houses and offices. Several incidents have been reported where strange reptiles have found their way into domestic households, scaring the residents out of their wits.
The wildlife cell of Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) receives at least 25 calls everyday, seeking help or complaining about a reptile’s entry into a residence.
On Saturday, the wildlife cell received a call from the residence of an IAS officer at HSR Layout. A cobra had entered officer Agawane’s house. The wildlife team got there on time to rescue it.
There are 33 BBMP wildlife volunteers who help residents capture reptiles entering their homes. During summer, snakes crawl out of their nests and come in search of cool places, said head of wildlife cell, R Sharath Babu.

The cleaning work started one week before, though the BBMP had sent the circular to this effect to the concerned ward office long ago.

Other sites will get cleaned up based on the grievances received from the Residents’ Welfare Association and the general public,” a BBMP official said.
