You can hear them but you can’t find where they are getting in. I don’t know how often I have heard that.
This is the first sign of extreme frustration and it is all down hill from here.
Normally you go from
- I can hear a noise in my roof, maybe if I leave it the noise will go away by its self.
- No the noise hasn’t gone away.
Then you start looking for the holes and unless you get up on the roof and find a real obvious hole then you will often not know for sure where they get in.
Just removing them by trapping is a waste of time and it can harm the possum, besides that it doesn’t fix the problem………….. because another one will just follow the scent trail and bingo, you have a new possum in your roof.
Then by the time you ring me, extreme frustration is evident and somehow the cute little nocturnal creature that appeared at night on the balcony has transformed into PUBLIC ENEMY number 1 and must be taken care of once and for all.
I even had a guy with possums in Brisbane once meet me at the top of the stairs to his house, grab me by the collar and say, “mate! I don’t care what you have to do just get rid of the €£%#^*¥ possum”
Fortunately we did, he calmed down and no one got hurt!!!! In particular the possum.
The main point to remember is that possums don’t just go away, they are looking for a home and when they find a vacancy they move in, get comfortable and live their life. A part of which is their nocturnal activities in your roof.
What to do?
Get them out as soon as you hear the first noises.
If you can’t see the entry point obviously then chances are it will be hard to find.
