Possum Removal Adelaide

We can assist you at any time as we are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. Our dedicated and locally based possum removal team respond fast to emergency call outs for possum control services across Adelaide.

Possums may look cute and cuddly, but they can be very destructive if they decide to take up residence in your roof or shed, and getting rid of them isn’t a simple task. Possums are territorial by nature – they may get aggressive if they feel threatened, and if you remove them they will quickly return to their previous nesting spot.

Book a possum removal and control service you can rely on with superior customer service at Allstate Pest Control.

Removing possums from your roof

When removing possums, there are certain laws you have to abide by. A possum needs to be released within 50 metres of where it was caught, and it’s illegal to trap and remove a possum without a licence.

The easiest and most effective way of removing a possum is to get the help of licenced pest control professionals. We will humanely trap the possum, seal up any entry points in your roof so it can’t return, then release it with a nesting box so that it has a new home. When it comes to Possum Removal, we’ve got you covered!

    Travis had been helpful and thoughtful in his delivery information about pest control due to my cancer and worry about chemicals inside the unit and around the property.

    Thank you Travis for doing a wonderful job and taking the time to hear me.

    I have been using Statewide Pest Control for many years and will continue to do so their operations have been efficient and effective for me.

    I was referred to Allstate from a friend initially for termites. From first contact to end result they were amazing. Friendly, reliable, knowledgeable and thorough. They followed up and made sure all was well. Then shortly after I had a rodent issues which again staff came out and were amazing and patient with me. Thanks to you all. Will definitely recommend you.

    Brady was exceptionally professional and courteous. His extensive knowledge and experience gave us great comfort that our uninvited guests in our roof would not be visiting again. Brady is a great ambassador for Allstate and will be the main reason that I will only call Allstate for my future needs.

    The lovely young man who attended my job was professional knowledgeable amiable polite well spoken efficient helpful. I would absolutely recommend this business to everybody for their inspections and pest treatments. Not only do they turn up on time and communicate a small change in the timeline that is to say that they were early which worked great for me but the detail and thorough in depth inspection and treatment was carried out to a level/standard which absolutely exceeded my expectations. Being honest I was fully prepared as a female to be somewhat disregarded based on previous experience with other providers however to my Delight there was no gender bias in the delivery at all I was treated with courtesy dignity and respect. The only feedback I can give to the company would be tap and go payment is far more comfortable for the customer in this case me as opposed to typing in my card number to pay my bill everything else top rank number one in the country good job well done

How Allstate possum removal works

Our approach starts with a thorough assessment and proposal to identify all possible ways the possum has entered your roof, so we can decide on the best course of action. The removal process usually looks like:

  1. Our licensed trained technicians install proofing materials to all entry points to prevent possums entering or leaving the roof.
  2. We place a cage trap in the main entry point being used by the possums, and check it daily.
  3. Once the possum has entered the cage, we keep it calm while we proof the remainder of the roof and install a nesting box in the most ideal tree within 50 metres of where it was captured.
  4. We release the possum into its new home in the nesting box.

Frequently Asked Questions about possums

How do I know if I have a possum in my roof?

Possums are nocturnal animals, so you will likely hear them moving around your roof overnight. If you can hear scurrying or scratching in your roof, this is usually rats and mice. If you hear loud, thumping sounds then it’s likely you’re dealing with possums.

If you’re not sure, get us out to have a look and we will be able to determine what the problem is by the size of the entry points into your roof.

Why do possums shelter in roofs?

Possums usually nest in tree hollows for shelter, warmth and to stay out of sight of predators. As trees become sparser in urban environments, possums see roofs as an ideal alternative.

How do I keep possums out of my roof?

There are a few steps you can take to limit the chances of possums in nesting in your roof:

  • Remove any overhanging branches and foliage that make it easy for them to gain access
  • Maintain your roofing and tiles, and check for gaps regularly (particularly after windy or stormy weather)
  • If you don’t have any available tree hollows in your back yard, install a nesting box to encourage possums to stay out of your roof

Does possum removal harm the possum?

Our possum removal doesn’t harm the possum, and our licenced technicians are trained to minimise the possum’s stress during the trapping process as much as possible.
