How Can We Help You With A Possum Infestation?
After receiving a call from you, one of our pest control specialists will come to your home and inspect the property to find out the extent of the problem and the exact cause of the issue you are facing with. We will look for trails and evidence throughout your premises to confirm the presence of this invasive species.
Once we have confirmed possum infestation, we will use traps to catch them. These traps will be placed near the entry point or where the activities of possums are highly noted. After trapping all the possums, we will also check whether any babies are left uncaught. Following this, we will seal all the entry ways to ensure that these animals never re-enter your home.
The trapped possums will be taken at least ten miles away from your home to release them in a woody area. This approach, backed by years of experience, ensures a possum-free environment that aligns with ethical standards and industry best practices.

Frequently Asked Questions
Pest control specialists inspect a property to determine the extent of possum infestation. After assessing the spread, they place traps at entry points to catch possums. They again conduct a manual inspection to catch all the possums, which are released in the woods situated at a considerable distance from your home.
There are many ways to get rid of possums, such as chemical repellents, motion-activated sprinklers, fences and traps. Try to close small openings and entrance points on your property. Residents can also remove fruit from their trees and shrubs to repel possums and tightly close the trash can.
You can spray various things to keep possums away, depending on your own resistance to strong and pungent smells. While garlic and spicy pepper are easily available common choices, a mixture of hot peppers, dish soap and hot sauce also makes an effective spray.
Using natural methods like putting up fences, and using sprays and motion-activated sprinklers is a harmless way of repelling possum. However, not everyone is authorised to trap possums. Hence, it is always advisable to contact an expert team such as Pest Control Unit to take care of all your needs.
If you catch a possum and want to release it, release it near a tree around 150 metres away from your home. The possum will immediately climb the tree and find food and shelter. Releasing it in other unfamiliar habitats can cause injury or death.
