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.

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!

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.
