Professional Possum Removal

Possum Removal ToowoombaPossums are a protected Australian native species, but that doesn’t mean they deserve free run of your home (and roof).

Most possums found inside urban dwellings are the Common Brushtail Possum species. Having lost a lot of their natural habitat, possums have adapted well to living in suburbia – and they’re experts at moving into your home unannounced. Possums typically live in ceilings where it’s dry and warm and have even been known to go down chimneys, which is why King Arthur are your local experts for safe and lasting possum removal.

It is illegal to harm or kill these pests and the removal must be handled by a licensed and government approved possum catchers. For quotes and support in line with Government rules and regulations, get in touch on 0417 739 897 today.

How do I know if I need possum pest control?

You will likely hear possums moving around inside your ceiling before you see them – they will leave your roof just after sunset and return just before sunrise. And being mainly herbivores, they will also eat new plant shoots, your prized flowers and home-grown produce in your gardens.

When it comes to spotting the signs of a possum problem, the smell is undeniable. These animals 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.

Keep in mind, it is ILLEGAL to harm or kill these pests, and the possum removal must be handled by a licensed and government approved possum catchers. You need to call a professional with a license.

How long does the removal take?

This is going to depend on how entrenched the animals are in your home. Most possum removal starts with preventing additional entry to and from the space except from a single point of entry. With this established, it’s a matter of time as nature does its job. Your home will be declared possum-free once all of the animals have departed through the single exit, which admittedly could take some time depending on their personal activity levels.

To help, a pest control operator may also install cages near the entrance to draw in and humanely capture any possums that are still coming and going from the area. This can take anywhere from a few days to weeks depending on your particular case. With the last of the animals out of your home, possum proofing measures can be taken to ensure they cannot reenter.

What is the cost of possum removal in Toowoomba?

There are a few factors that go into determining the cost of removing these animals from the premises, and all of them come down to time.

Accessing a two-storey roof, for example, takes more time and equipment than does a one-storey dwelling, so taller buildings tend to cost a little more to eradicate. Roof pitch and material can also vary, making it more or less difficult for operators to assess the situation and access the spaces that require inspection and remediation. And of course, the more possums you have, the longer it can take for a team to properly remove them whether during a site visit or over time through the use of baits and cages.

All of that said, average costs for possum removal in Toowoomba range between $250-$400. You should also ask your provider about any warranties that they offer on their service.
