Possums are marsupials native to Australia. Due to urbanisation and a reduction in tree hollows and other natural areas they would call home, possums sometimes decide that the roof voids and wall cavities in our homes are a perfect substitute. Unfortunately when the possums are moving about in these spaces they can sometimes cause damage to wiring and insulation. Being a large nocturnal animal also means they make quite a racket while most of us are trying to sleep.


How to control?

Possums are fully protected therefore it is illegal to trap, keep or harm them without a permit. To remove the possums from the area, first all the entry points need to be located and sealed to prevent re-entry. Then cage traps and one-way trap doors are used to remove the possums from the area and possum nesting boxes are placed close by for the possum to use.
