Possums are a protected Australian native species. Most possums found inside urban dwellings are the Common Brushtail Possum. They have lost a lot of their natural habitat & have adapted well to living in suburbia. They like living in ceilings where it’s dry and warm, and have even been known to go down chimneys.
Possums received their name from a supposed resemblance to the opossums of South America, but they have nothing more in common than that they are arboreal (tree-living) marsupials. Australian possums have a pouch and give birth to tiny embryonic young that grow inside the pouch. They also have strongly developed incisors on both the upper and lower jaw, which means they’re good at chewing things.
It is illegal to harm or kill possums, and they must be removed by a licenced and government approved operator. You need to call a professional with a license.
For one thing, the smell is undeniable. Possums are territorial and will most definitely urinate and rub oil from glands located on their chest, chin, and anal region to mark what’s theirs. They will also leave cylindrical pellet-shaped droppings that are longer than 10mm everywhere.
You will hear possums moving around inside your ceiling – they will leave your roof just after dusk and return just before sunrise. And being mainly herbivores, possums will also eat new plant shoots, your prized flowers and home-grown produce in your gardens.

While there are options out there such as possum repellents, traps, and putting up fences to defend your property, these are not assured ways of getting rid of possums. They have been known to fight through many home remedies. When they are hungry, the usual deterrents will not work. They can be quite determined pests!
Simply removing them does not mean they will not come back. They also have to be treated humanely. There are a few restrictions in handling possums, and it is best to hire a licensed professional.
Possums are mainly herbivores though they have been known to eat insects such as moths and grubs, snails, bird eggs and baby birds. They favour eucalyptus leaves as well as buds, flowers and fruits of other trees, and can tolerate many plant toxins that other animals find poisonous.
