Possums are protected nocturnal marsupials that have adapted well in the face of urban development.
Due to the clearing of trees possums have lost their homes and natural nesting sites forcing them to stake claim to roofs and cavities in and around commercial and residential buildings.
Most possum problems in urban areas are caused by poor building practices, along with an abundance of available food sources possum are thriving in most suburbs.
Possums cause damage to insulation and electrics whilst possum droppings and urine can cause hygiene problems and staining of ceilings.
