Possum Control


Protecting Your Home from Possums

Possums can be destructive animals that are capable of causing significant damage to structures.  When possums live in your roof they may damage insulation, chew electrical wiring or contaminate an area with their urine and faeces. Possums can expose your family to disease and other dangers, which is why you’ll want a  fast and effective possum removal services.

Effective Possum Removal and Prevention

Possums can inhabit the roof, walls, basement, garage, and other areas of the home.  Once they target a structure, it can be next to impossible to get rid of possums.  These habitual animals are known to go back to the same homes again and again, which is why homeowners should also use preventative measures to avoid infestation in the future.  Correct identification of the Possums’ sleeping areas at your premises is an important part of implementing an effective program for the removal of this marsupial. Termite Choices can also arrange to install a Possum box in your yard prior the removal of the Possum.
