These cute looking creatures may look harmless, and truth be told they usually stay away from humans, however it’s the property damage and the unhygienic possum waste that cause distress.
Possums regularly rummage around in garbage searching for food and other scraps. It’s not uncommon for them to nest in roof spaces turning a neat and organized space into a mess of droppings, damaged surrounds and urine stains.
When possums settle in, like most pests, they usually come in waves, inviting all their family and friends to join in on their newly discovered source of food and shelter.
There are some simple steps you can try taking to stop possums nesting in roof spaces and other cavities. Firstly, make sure all your external bins are secure so they can’t get in and forage for food scraps. Maintain your landscaped areas, paying close attention to overhanging branches and trees.
