I have a possum problem – what can I do?

If you have a possum problem, there are a few things you can do to minimise the possum nuisance:

  • Prune tree branches around your home to ensure that possums cannot use the branches to travel onto your roof.
  • Install perspex collars around the trunks of the trees.

If a possum is getting into your roof at night, you will need to have someone check your roof and block up any small holes that the possum may be using to access the internal roof space.
