Known for their unique ability, possums are really a nuisance to homeowners. They will raid your yards, garden, and trash, and sometimes steal your pet’s food. Being nocturnal, they settle down in your garage, attic, roof or under your deck.

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. We also remove all the contaminated nesting materials before leaving your property.
So, if you notice the signs of possum infestation, don’t hesitate to call us at 0415 589 338. We have the experience and expertise to help you with all your possum control issues.
