Sleepless nights, barking dogs and distinct smells. The joys of a possum in your roof.

While possums are rather cute creatures, they make night time an unpleasant experience if they are camping it out in your roof.

Signs of possums include scratching and banging at night and the occasional hissing noises. No, it's not a banshee or ghost.

Stains in the ceiling with strong smells similar to ammonia may also be present, which is a result of urination.

Scats will be present around the house too, which are cylndrical, light brown/green and about an inch long.

Possum Inspections And Removal

Possums are crafty creatures that can find the smallest gaps in a roof and slip through, claiming it as their home.

They can make life frustrating and also cause potential health problems as well as damage to your roof.

These creatures are native marsupials and are protected, so removal and relocation is the appropriate and legal way to deal with them.

While it may be tempting to try yourself, possums will fight back if they are cornered and cannot run away, and can cause some nasty damage. Since they are protected, it is illegal to catch and rehome them without a licence.

Call us today to book an inspection and allow our qualified pest inspectors to remove your possum in a safe and effective manner that leaves both parties happy.
