Possum removal Brisbane
Possum removal Brisbane houses is even more critical than ever before. Tthe expanding territories of possums means there is an accommodation shortage.
With the extensive use of timber for housing construction and the general age of the suburbs, unfortunately possums simple chew through weakened and aged timber to gain access to your roof space.
The other big issue with some of the older places is the construction methods employed many years ago. Before possums became a big issue, houses were built with ventilation and airflow in mind. It was common practice to not finish the roof off with eves and therefore gaps were left at the top of walls into the ceiling. This is a huge problem, not only with birds but now days possums. Commonly these gaps were sealed off with chicken wire but a possum with a will to get in will chew through or rather keep biting at it until they get through.
Why is there possums in your roof?
The reason they’re in your roof is primarily to find a place to sleep. Under normal circumstances they would live in a hollow in a tree but as we humans have encroached on there territories and by our expanding urban sprawl. This takes away their natural habitat and replaces it with a beautiful dry, comfortable roof to call home. Now I know they’re native animals but they’re far from stupid and lets face it what would you rather?
