Are you hearing hissing, screeching or thumping sounds coming from your roof, especially at night? It could well be that pest possums have moved in.

Not only are they noisy, possums can leave a mess with their smelly urine and droppings and chew through electric wiring and insulation. They also become aggressive when they feel threatened and often pick fights with your pets.

Jim’s possum removal services

We follow the strict Queensland government regulations around possum control and relocation, which state that possums cannot be killed and must be released within 25m from where they were captured by licensed pest control technicians.

To stay compliant, we’ll need to work with you to humanely capture and re-home the pest possums living in your roof space by:

Identifying entry points and then blocking them off

Positioning cage traps and luring the possums inside, placing them in a dark, quiet area to keep them calm

Thoroughly cleaning your roof space to prevent re-entry by removing all scent markers

Identifying entry points and then blocking them off

Releasing the possums into their new home at dusk by either finding a cozy tree hollow or positioning wooden possum nesting boxes on trees in your yard

Possums In The Roof

Do not feed the possums and keep food stored away, including pet food

Consider possum proofing and removal with professional pest technicians at Jim’s Pest Control
