Geelong Pest Control will only control possums when they enter the dwelling, such as roof voids or subfloors. Our approach is to conduct a full site inspection, looking for entry points, we will then proof all but one entry point and fasten a one way door to allow the possum to leave, then when the door closes behind them and you hear no noises for at least a few days, we will return and block that entry point. We have other methods which are also highly effective and safe for the possum.
