  Pest invasion of domestic or commercial premises and environs threatens our health and property. Today, effective pest control involves safe and environmentally sensitive solutions to control existing pest problems and prevent re-infestation.

Peter the Possum man, famous for sensitive solutions to urban possum problems, also provides solutions to general rodent and insect problems. For protection of your environment, trust Peter the Possum Man.

As part of our commitment to the environment, we have developed an environmental  management system that is above international standards (ISO 14001).
  The possum is an Australian marsupial and is protected under the Wildlife Act 1975 which prohibits trapping or eradicating without a Licence.

In their natural state, possums sleep in hollow trees, but because there are very few natural harborages in suburban areas, they invade the ceilings of homes, and if left, may cause considerable damage to the ceilings and electrical wiring.

  Permanent control is obtained by not only blocking the obvious entry points but strengthening where they may gain entry in the future.
One way exits are placed in the most common possum access points to allow the possums to leave the roof void while all other possible entries are sealed.  Once the possums have vacated the ceiling void we then remove the one way exits and block the final openings.  In some rare circumstances, cages may also need to be used within the roof void.
Caged possums are released on site in accordance with the conditions of our Wildlife Control Licence, recognizing that possums generally do not survive relocation.
  The Peter the Possum Man comprehensive service includes:
  • Checking all obvious entry holes, and proofing with suitable materials.
  • Checking all ridge capping, particularly corner pieces, and cementing where necessary to ensure they are secure.
  • Checking lower tiles adjacent to spouting, re-setting and cementing if required.
  • Replacing broken tiles and re-nailing loose corrugated iron where appropriate.
  • Checking of eaves, and proofing where necessary.
  • Checking of gables, and re-pointing where necessary.
  • Baiting for control of rats which often accompany an infestation of possums.
  All work is covered by a warranty appropriate to your needs.
  Whilst we are best known for our possum and rat control work, we are adept at controlling other pests such as: mice, wasps, bees, spiders, ants, fleas, silverfish, and cockroaches.
