Our efficient scheduling process ensures that you receive a swift response and can address the possum infestation without delay.

Comprehensive Inspection

Our experienced experts will conduct a thorough inspection of your property, meticulously examining potential hiding spots, entry points, and areas of activity for possums. By assessing the extent of the infestation, we can determine the most effective strategies for removal and prevention.

Through our comprehensive inspection, we gain valuable insights into the possum behavior and tailor our approach accordingly.

Possum Identification and Behavior Analysis

Our trained professionals will accurately identify the type of possum infesting your property, such as the Common Brushtail Possum, Ringtail Possum, or Sugar Glider. We conduct a detailed analysis of their behavior patterns, including feeding habits, nesting preferences, and movement patterns, to develop a targeted removal plan.

Understanding the specific behaviors of possums allows us to implement strategies that are both effective in removal and respectful of their natural instincts.

Analysis and Treatment Plan Development

Based on the findings from the inspection and behavior analysis, our team will develop a customised treatment plan tailored to your property’s unique requirements. Our experts consider factors such as the location of possum entry points, the presence of food sources, and the structural vulnerabilities of your property.

The treatment plan will outline the most appropriate methods and techniques to safely and humanely remove the possums from your premises.

Discussion and Approval

We believe in transparent communication and actively involve you in the decision-making process. We will discuss the treatment plan with you, addressing any concerns or queries you may have.

Our team will explain the proposed methods, their effectiveness, and the expected outcomes to ensure you have a clear understanding of the process. Once you are satisfied with the treatment plan, we will seek your approval before proceeding with the removal process.

Treatment Execution

Our trained technicians will execute the treatment plan with utmost care and professionalism, implementing humane methods to capture and relocate the possums. We prioritise the safety and well-being of both the possums and your property, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily activities.

Our expertise and experience enable us to efficiently and effectively carry out the removal process, taking all necessary precautions to prevent harm to the possums.

Monitoring and Follow-Up

After the removal, we continue to monitor the situation to ensure the possums have been successfully removed and no new infestations occur.

Our team will conduct follow-up visits to assess the effectiveness of the treatment, address any remaining concerns, and make adjustments if necessary.

Possum Prevention Tips

  • Trim Vegetation: Trim tree branches that provide easy access to your roof or house, as possums use them as pathways.
  • Install Protective Barriers: Use wire mesh or possum-proof fencing to prevent possums from accessing vulnerable areas of your property.
  • Secure Roof Vents and Chimneys: Install mesh screens or covers on roof vents and chimneys to prevent possums from entering.
  • Seal Entry Points: Conduct a thorough inspection of your property and seal any gaps, cracks, or openings that may serve as entry points for possums.
  • Remove Food Sources: Secure garbage bins, remove fallen fruit from trees, and keep pet food indoors to minimise attractants for possums.


Possums are generally not aggressive and prefer to avoid human contact. However, they can carry diseases and may become aggressive if cornered or threatened. It’s best to avoid direct contact and seek professional assistance for possum removal.


Possum removal is regulated by wildlife authorities to ensure the protection and welfare of possums. It is essential to engage licensed professionals who follow ethical and legal guidelines when removing possums.

In many jurisdictions, it is illegal to trap or harm possums without the necessary permits. Additionally, removing possums without proper knowledge and experience may result in ineffective removal or harm to the possums. It is recommended to seek professional assistance for possum removal.

The duration of the possum removal process depends on various factors, including the extent of the infestation and the complexity of the property. Our team will assess your situation and provide you with an estimated timeline during the initial inspection.
