They can actually carry fleas and ticks into your home which can infect your own pets. Possum poo and urine can have dangerous bacteria in it too. They can destroy furniture, make holes in roof cavities, ceiling voids and have even been known to accidentally start fires. Often it is a nest that is in a chimney or flue that then catches alight. The point is that possums can easily become an expensive unwanted guest. You could be paying for costly repairs and damages if you don’t get proper possum pest control.
As a nocturnal creature, possums are out and about when you are usually asleep. They can be doing all sorts of mischief to your place without you realising until it’s too late. Another concern is that they can cause all sorts of problems for your pets. There can be dangerous fights, stress causing confrontations as well as passing on pests of their own. Possum removal is not something to ignore. You need a prompt and professional possum catcher trained in proper possum capture.
The first step is to get expert advice from trusted experts. That’s where Jacka Bros Pest Control is the name to remember.
One of the most annoying things about possums is they can be loud and disturb your whole household. They are often aggressive and can be devastating to your house, garden and possum removal is a specialised field. You need to know if you have one or a number of possums. Finding their access points to your home and if they have done any damage already is a key to possum control.
Possums are a protected species by the Australian government. Any possum control measures have strict guidelines. Any possum removal from your property means releasing them no more than 50 metres away(or releasing them on your property itself).
You need to take the chance to block any entry points to your roof, walls or ceiling. The question is, what can you do if the possum family has already moved in?
Having the experts at Jacka Bros on your side means you will be doing all the right things and not causing harm to the possum or breaking any environmental laws in the process.
Limiting the chances of possums getting into your home and making it theirs starts with a few simple measures. Protect any access points to your roof, especially closing up any gaps in tiling, spouting, pipe work and cabling. The most popular possum route into your home is via the roof. Trim back any long reaching or overhanging branches and make sure you don’t have anything that invites a possum to climb up to your roof. You can try a few different things yourself but it makes sense to call on a professional possum catcher on the job.
