APHIS Wildlife Services coordinates operational efforts on Guam aimed at keeping the snake from reaching other destinations. Wildlife Services personnel use snake trapping in high-risk areas, trained snake-detector dogs in cargo, nighttime spotlight searches, toxicants, and public education as tools to achieve this goal.
