There are many things to be considered such as single or double storey, how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, garages or carports the dwelling has. What type of material is the house built with i.e. brick, wood steel or the like. Also needing to be assessed is the type of pitch on the roof and if there is an internal man hole and if not how does the roof void get accessed? Also need to assess is there any children living at this address, do they have animals and if so what type and how many are there?

Possums are a wild animal and make their movement around trees and bordering areas of Forests and Reserves. Possums are nocturnal animals and love eating berries from trees and Bottle brush flowers in and surrounding our homes at night and then they will sleep during the day.
Possums are nocturnal and like a shift worker, they wake up around 7pm – 8pm for the night time activities and then go back to sleep between 3am and 5am in the morning. They love living in our homes as the roof voids have insulation in the form of wool or Bats which regulate the heat in our homes. This makes for a blissful sleep and beautiful home for the Possums.
June through to August each year is the mating season for Possums. This time will be very noisy as the male will hold down the female and have its way. As you can guess the female will not always submit which then causes all the ruckus. The actual noise of the mating ritual is also in itself a very noisy act. The babies live in mums pouches until they are fully grown.
Possums are very territorial animals and will run around in your roof keeping out any intruders.
Catching possums is via a trap and a tasty morsel within the trap which is then placed in your roof void. The possum will then enter the trap and the trap automatically closes behind them. Each possum caught is then relocated until all possums are caught. Some locations will have only one or two possums and other locations have had up to 11 possums. The Possum will and can take 2 to 4 days to be caught in a trap set for them.
This process can take from 24 hours to several weeks depending on how many possums are in the current location.
Possums can be cute but don’t feed them as they will multiply very quickly. Feeding will give them a food source and they will breed to the amount of the food available. Possums can carry disease and have very sharp claws so another reason not to touch or feed them.
Possums are protected in Australia.
Rodents can make a bang in the night and make noises in your roof void. The removal of rodents starts with an inspection of the area in question to determine is it Rats or mice.
Once it is decided which type of Rodent it is that is in the roof void the appropriate Rodent bait can be used. This will also then take into account the size of the Rodent station that is used to act on the appropriate rodent in each individual situation.
The treatment is applied and the Rodents will eat the bait supplied. Once the Rodent has eaten the bait it will go away and die.
Rodents will not die in your roof void. The humble mouse can be found in your garden shed or Garage. Mice will have many young and in a very short time.
