Possums in Australian are a protected species. As such you will need to comply with the relevant state regulations.

They are not considered a destructive pest, more a nuisance. Growling and hissing noises are a true indication that you have them in your roof.

When breeding season approaches you will often hear possums fighting. It can be quite disturbing to residents when they hear these arguments in the middle of the night.

Although they look cute and cuddly, I can assure you when they are cornered, they can be quite savage. Therefore, when Sydney residents discover possums, they call Jim’s Pest Control, to deal with them.

How do I get rid of possums in my roof safely?

The safest way to rid your home of possums is by using a humane trap. The trap should be one that has the approved dimensions for catching possums. If you check with your local government authority, they will be able to provide this.

The trap is then placed into the roof void where the possum is living. A nice apple is provided to entice the possum into the trap. Once caught the trap can be removed with the possum in it.

Then proof up their entrance point immediately. The possum must then be released soon after, within 50 meters.

IMPORTANT; you must have a possum trapping permit to catch possums
