Pest Possum Removal

Possums are common throughout Mackay, and while these somewhat cute animals are mostly harmless, they can cause considerable damage if they choose to nest in roof spaces. And while you might start off with one or two possums in your roof, it doesn’t take long for many more to move in, making the problem even worse.

There are steps you can take to prevent possums invading and setting up home on your property, but if possums have already started nesting in your roof we strongly recommend you use a professional possum removal service rather than attempting to tackle the problem yourself. Our skilled technicians have all the required equipment and training to safely remove possums in accordance with conservation regulations.

Signs of Possum Infestation In Your Home:

  • Damage To Your Building – When there is possum infestation in your home, you could notice exterior damage to your building. Impacted sidings, gutter systems, eaves and ripped insulation on your rooftop are some of the signs to look out for.

  • Vanishing Pet Food – Possums are drawn to pet food. If your pet food disappears quickly, it could be a sign of a possum infestation.

  • Strange Animal Noises– If you notice shrieking or hissing sounds, chances are that you have an infestation. When you hear lip smacking sounds, it is an ideal sign that a mother possum has established its nest with its babies.

  • Scratching Noise – Possum makes lots of scuttling, ripping and scratching noises that seem louder than the ones created by rats or mice.

  • Unpleasant Pungent Smell – Possums defecate more frequently and their droppings are quite larger than those of the rats. When they soak into building materials, it causes an unpleasant odour. Presence of dead possum also produces intense smell of decay.
