Why is it necessary to remove possums?

Excellent climbers:Possums have excellent climbing capabilities, making the pest animal easily accessing your roof and damaging roof shingles, tiles, and gutters.

They can pee up to 300ml!:Possums leave large amounts of waste being able to pee up to 300ml in one go! The droppings of possums contain various pathogens that are smelly. This can compromise the health of you family.

Holes in walls and floors:Possum can mess up the interior of your property once accessed. They usually make holes in walls and floors, consuming the pet food, leaving food craps throughout the property.

Wire & Plumbing damage:Possums crew on plumbing, insulation, air ducts, and more damaging your property beyond your expectations. If they have damaged you insulation then see our insulation removal and insulation replacement services.

They will move in and stay:It is important to note that possums will live their entire live span in one habitat/home so they will not leave on their own.

We do not poison or kill your possum. We move them to a better more suitable home and release them. And no, it is not your neighbors.

Possums are more prevalent in the rural or fringe suburban areas of Perth that are surrounded by, or close to bushland. This is for the obvious reasons in that they have more vegetation to live in.

They are a rapidly decreasing species in Perth and Western Australia as the human population grows and Perth's slash and burn and develop mentality continues. By removing old trees that have hollows in them we are destroying where they can shelter, sleep and reproduce. So the Perth roof is all they have left in some cases.

How to confirm possum infestation at your property

As possums are nocturnal animals and stay away from the human eyesight, you may not always be able to confirm the infestation by visually seeing them.

  • Various exterior damage to the property, including broken gutter, damaged siding, torn up shingles, ripped soffit, and more.
  • Spoiled food products on the floor and disappearing pet food. Possum have a special liking to cat food, and you can confirm the presence of the pest with the frequent disappearance of cat food.
  • Do you hear loud scratching noises often and see scratches on walls and floors?
  • Possums also make a wide range of noises that include hissing and shrieking. The possum mothers often making clicking and lip-smaking sounds to signal their babies.
