Possums naturally live in trees, sheltering during the day and comming out at night to search for food. It is common for them to enter roof voids and chimneys when their homes are removed or they loose the battle with a more agressive possum wanting their home. Survival of the fittest in action. They are annoying to people because of the noises they make at night or generally early in the mornings when they are comming back to sleep again. They often leave stains on ceilings and odours from excretions. The possum is a protected creature and must not be killed. The 2 species encounted are the ring-tail and brush-tail possums.
If possums become a problem R.I.P can seal their entry point and therefore block the possum out. This can be done with a one way trap which will allow any possums still in the roof to be safely removed. The possum goes out the door but cannot regain entry.
