Scratching and Scurrying Noises in the Roof.
Laying in bed at night and all you can hear is the consistant chewing and scratching up in the ceiling.’Like a dripping tap it seems to get louder and louder. Right above your head.
I could take it if it weren’t right above me, bloody possums!!!!!
How long are you going to leave it before you look at it?
Guys, how many of you out there have been asked that question?
I would say 70% of the phone calls I receive from women are from those who have had enough of asking their partner to do something about it, so they take matters into their own hands.
Girls the truth is that most times the guys aren’t sure where the hole is or how to fix it when they do find it, so they don’t bother.
That’s just having a little bit of fun, but, the serious facts are that
the longer a possum stays in a roof the harder it is to keep it out
the damage possums can do to the gyprock is costly to repair
sleep deprivation is a real issue and can be very dangerous to your health
When you hear noises in the roof it’s usually one of two things, Possums or Rats. Sometimes it’s both.
What do you do?
Don’t just leave it and hope they will go away, they won’t. Unless they get hit by a car.
Getting them out early is the secret, the longer they are in there the harder it is to keep them out.
Find someone who specializes in possum removal.
The job you are really asking someone to do is to “stop possums from getting into your roof space” and interrupting your sleep.
So to ask some pest control guy to get a possum out of your roof isn’t really a long term solution.
Over the past 8 or so years I have seen a lot of resourceful possums and how they gain entry to you property, you would be surprised the lengths they will go to.
