Why get rid of POSSUMS?

Damage to Property: Possums can cause significant damage to property, especially in residential areas. They tend to chew on building materials, including wood, insulation, electrical wiring, and pipes. This can lead to costly repairs and pose potential safety hazards, such as electrical fires and water damage.

 

Garden and Crop Destruction: Possums are known to feed on a wide variety of plants, including fruits, vegetables, flowers, and trees. They can decimate gardens, destroy crops, and damage ornamental plants, leading to financial losses and the loss of a carefully cultivated landscape.

 

Disease Transmission: Possums can carry diseases such as tuberculosis, leptospirosis, and salmonellosis, which can be a concern if they encounter humans or domestic animals. Their faeces and urine can also contaminate water sources and contribute to the spread of diseases.

 

Noise and Nuisance: Possums are nocturnal creatures and can be quite noisy during the night. Their movements on rooftops, scratching, and vocalizations can disrupt sleep and cause annoyance for residents. Their presence can also attract other pests, such as fleas or ticks.

 

Native Wildlife Impact: In certain regions, possums are considered invasive species and can have detrimental effects on native wildlife populations. They compete with native animals for resources, such as food and shelter, and can negatively impact the ecological balance of ecosystems.

 

Conservation Efforts: Removing possums from your premises can support local conservation efforts and help protect native flora and fauna. By reducing possum populations, you contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and the overall health of ecosystems.

If you decide to approach a possum, it is recommended to seek a professional pest control expert.
