Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control are your local possum specialists. Our service area includes all of Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. We have over two decades of experience removing and relocating these cute but persistent marsupials.
While the Common Brushtail, Common Ringtail and Mountain Brushtail possums are native to Australia and a protected species, living with possums in your roof can be frustrating. These out of control critters have been known to chew through electrical wire and timber, causing great expense, while their droppings and urine can present a health risk. Take a look at the video above to see what this desperate pest will do to get back into a roof from which it has been proofed.
Because suburbia has increasingly encroached on their natural habitat, these marsupials have no choice but to adapt and find new places to live and things to eat, such as tree bark and leaves, shrubs, fruits and vegetables, flowers, fungi, and lichen. This can be a problem if one or a family of possums find a way into your ceiling or roof cavity to set up their abode, or decide that their next meal is coming from your vegetable patch or even worse, the fruit bowl on your kitchen table.
While humans and possums need to learn to exist in harmony with each other, if one is causing you issues you can take measures to evict them from your roof void and then seal off the gap or crevice where they are entering your dwelling. It is also important to set a trap inside any sealed off areas to catch any that might now be trapped inside. This is an effective deterrent and will have them on their way to find another place to live. Local laws must be followed however which means any possums cannot be relocated more than 25m away from where they are caught.
