Possums are native Australian animals that won’t harm humans and they usually stay away from people. However, if they infest a house or workplace, they can affect the health of the building’s occupants.

Why Is Possum Removal Necessary?

Possum infestation can have an extensive impact on your property. There are a few reasons why possums can cause health issues and create problems around your property that are expensive to fix:
  • Possum droppings contain bacteria that can cause humans to develop flesh-eating ulcers and even a permanent functional disability.
  • Possums in rural and semi-urban areas prefer to live in trees. But the possums that live in urban areas nest in roofs and they often damage the roof tiles in the process.
  • They will eat whatever food they find inside your house or workplace. They will also tear up the ductwork and insulation, produce pungent odours, leave stains, and other problems too.
  • Possums might act aggressively towards your pets.
  • Possums tend to carry fleas and ticks.
