Spring is the time that you may get possums in your roof they return to where the source is and use the space to shelter and raise their young.
While it may not cause too much trouble with just a few in the roof it may will cause you many sleepless nights when the whole family start fighting or mating.
Also with all of the building that is now happening in Canberra there are many times when builders seal the entry not knowing that there is a possum in the roof and its not too long that the possum die and the smell becomes unbearable.
We have had clients and this isn’t pleasant where maggots drop from the light fittings where the possum has died.
WHAT TO DO WHEN A POSSUM DIES IN YOUR ROOF
Only yesterday (Sunday) Bob took a call from a home owner where it was a slight smell then the smell got increasingly worse as the body of the possum decayed.
We can also get this happening when people throw baits in the roof when they think that it will kill the rodent and it does but they can not escape and die.
1) Ring Bob 0407 065 413
2) The team will remove the dead possum/rat
3) Put an odour bag up that will absorb the smell NOT mask it.
