There are more than 16 species of possums found in Australia. These are nocturnal marsupials with a bushy tail and pointy ears.
Possums are considered a nuisance once they come inside your property for shelter. Possums’ pee can seep through walls causing a strong smell over time which is really annoying. Apart from disturbing your peaceful sleep every night, possums can also cause damage in your yard and create a fire hazard by chewing on electrical wiring.
Once threatened, their initial reaction is to attack or bite you to protect themselves. But take note that possums are protected and cannot be killed. Ask a trained possum removal team to do this for you instead to ensure everyone’s safety.
