Why Should You Remove Possum From Your Property?

If not removed on time, possums can compromise the healthy condition of your property and cause various damage.

Due to these pests, you will experience the following issues at your property:

  • Possums leave a large amount of waste; especially the droppings can contaminate your environment and carry various pathogens. The pests spread various diseases, including tuberculosis and coccidiosis.
  • Possums are excellent climbers, often climbing attic and roof, causing damage to roof shingles, tiles, gutters, and more.
  • Possums may access your property and mess up the interior. They consume food and pet food, make holes in walls and floors, leave food scraps and droppings, etc.
  • These pests are highly unpredictable and can chew your plumbing, insulation, and air ducts.
  • Possums continue to live in their habitats. The pests won’t go their own if they choose to live in a property. By making scratching noises, generating various types of debris, and creating clutters, they become a nuisance to the peaceful life of the inhabitants of the properties.
If you notice any dead possum in your property, you can contact us for quick dead possum removal in the Gold Coast.

Signs Of Possum Infestation At Your Property

These nocturnal pests try to stay away from human sight, and you may not visually see them confirm their presence. You need to confirm possums in your property with the following signs of infestation:
  • Visible damage to the exterior of the property, such as damaged siding, ripped soffit, torn up shingles, broken gutters, and more.
  • Disappearing food products, including pet food, from the property.
  • Possums like cat food very much; so watch for it.
  • Loud, scratching noises at night. You may also see scratches on your walls and floors.
  • Possums make various vocalisations, such as hissing, shrieking, and more. Mother possums usually make clicking and lip-smacking sounds to signal their babies.
  • Possum droppings are smelly, and the pest animal frequently defecates in their environment. If you smell some unpleasant odour in your property, you can check for the other possum infestation signs.
Though possum infestation can lead to property damage and compromise the healthy environment of your property, you can’t kill or catch them as they are protected per federal and state laws.

A Four-Stage Possum Removal Process

At Tom’s Pest Control, our four-stage possum removal will address the factors that led to infestation along with the removal of pest.

Pest Inspection

Our certified possum removal technicians will visit your property and identify the possum species and document their characteristics.

We will also investigate various damage due to infestation and the property factors that attracted possum to your environment.

We will provide you with a comprehensive inspection report with our findings, damage noticed at the property, photographs, recommendations for property repair, and more.

Possum Removal Plan

Based on our inspection findings, we will create a tailored possum removal plan for your property. The plan will include all the details of the service, including the removal procedure, the duration of the procedure, any approvals required from the authorities, and more.

At Tom’s Pest Control, we have a team of researchers to study the behavioural habits of possums to ensure safe, hassle-free removal of the pest.

Same Day Possum Removal

Our licensed Gold Coast possum removal specialists will remove the animal from your property as described in the plan. We generally catch possums using cage traps – made from wire mesh – to ensure no harm to the animal during the process.

Once we place the cage traps at your property, we will check the cages everyday morning until trapped and release the animal safely at a distance instructed by the authorities.

Ongoing Prevention

As the best possum removal services in Gold Coast, we will also provide you with strategies and tips to prevent future possum infestation.

We will advise you on specific techniques – including netting, electric fencing, and more – to make the pest least comfortable in your environment.

If the favourable factors at your property for the pest animal are not addressed, possums may infest your property again.

As one of the best possum removal services in the Gold Coast, we will advise you on specific techniques, property repairing needs, or fencing to make your property inaccessible for possums.

Some general tips that can make your property not a convenient habitat for possums include:

  • Remove any debris pile up and clutter at your property. Possums find safe hiding places in piles of books, newspapers, wood, fabrics, etc.
  • Trim back trees and shrubs that are close to the property as possums can climb through branches and access your property and roof.

What is the secret to possums building their nests in wall cavities, and why?

Because they are darker and warmer than roof cavities, possums like to sleep in wall cavities during the day. Likewise, you can hear rats crawling along walls and floors. Research has shown that 87% of visits to rat nests were on floors and walls, while only 45% were in roof cavities.

Strange creatures crawl on the ceiling, making human friends suspicious. Research on the Gold Coast found that 67% reported seeing possums crawling up their roof cavities. These possums were also reported by 58% of those who were bitten.
