Colder weather brings many pests indoors and literally we make it easy for possums especially by giving them access through vines that grow up on the house or trellis that is too close to the roof. From there its easy access through a loose or broken tile into your roof void.
Here the possums will be able to sleep during the day and then leave to search for food during the night. This may seem to be harmless activity until they start breeding, fighting and chasing each other. Possums travel in pairs and mate for life.
To the unsuspecting home owner this disrupts sleep and from the owners bed it sounds like they are running with army boots on!
We are registered with TAMS to be able to trap and release possums, we can point out where the possums are gaining entry and advise the home owner to trim back trees, fix tiles or air conditioning ducts that have not been sealed correctly.
Another pest that gains access in a similar way is bush rats and sometimes we find through investigating droppings its NOT a possum but rats. We can then bait the rats and that should end your sleepless nights.
