It is an understanding feature that possums cause remarkable destruction to your property. You can call our Possum Removal Buderim team for their removal. Before the start of the process, the first step is the proper identification of the possum, its species, and the amount of damage it caused. 

Our team first removes all the attractants such as food and water and potential homes from your property. This prevents them from attracting your property. Next, we block all the entry points like all types of vents, chimneys, and other holes or gaps. Also, doors are sealed and tree branches that touch your home must be trimmed. Our experts use various types of chemical and electronic repellents to keep the possum away. A wire of electric fencing is used when they rush towards the garden area. 

When possum is present inside your home, our expert team of professionals traps them using a bait or cage. As they are nocturnal animals, it is very easy to trap them at night using bait. If your backyard has a place, you can create a nesting box or purchase it and install it near your house.
