As a protected species in Victoria, if one or more invades your roof space you need to have a professional and animal-friendly pest control technician help to remove them.
At Critter Control Pest Management we pride ourselves on being humane to problem pest animals. So when we remove them from your home we try to minimize the stress on the animal.
To remove them from roof voids we can set up traps to catch them in or we can set up 1 way doors so that they can get out but cannot get back in and must find another place to call home. 1 way doors are great for when you have a family of them in your roof as they can all leave via the 1 way door but none can get back in.
With these pests, it’s best to invest in possum management strategies that use a trap or installing a 1 way door, then block the entry point they were using to get into your roof and then relocate them. By law, this can only be within 50m of where the pest was found. So if their entry point is not blocked they WILL just come straight back. So finding and blocking the entry point or points is the most important part of possum removal.
So of these animals (or a single one) is causing you problems and you want to be sure of a humane pest solution, you can’t go past Critter Control Pest Management.
