Possums are protected in Australia and should be respected
Possums are out and about at night and are generally not see during the day. They love our urban areas because there is lots of food they can eat. And occasionally they cause sleepless nights, when they decide to call your roof, their home.
If you suspect a possum is living in your roof /ceiling or walls, you need to first look at how they might be getting in.
Talk to a building contractor and organise a quote for repairs to block the places they get it. Before you get the repairs done, call a licensed pest technician to relocate the possum.
Possums need to be relocated because they are protected native species and protected. This is why you need to organise your building contractor first.
If you get the repairs done first before removing the possum/s it could result in their death.
