“This is the case with the cute but not so cuddly creatures of the wild, native to Australia called possums. They are smaller than koalas but much bigger than rats and could just be just as much of a nuisance as these rodents.”
What makes a possum tick?
When asked what makes possums do what they do, Mr Possum replies, “Being vegetarians, they usually inhabit bushland areas but have also become quite domesticated in a nature-urban centre like Brisbane.”
“Having felt quite at home in a number of suburban housing areas, they just will not leave your home because they are extremely territorial by nature.”
Animal experts say that if a possum has stayed up in the warm ceiling of your home for more than two weeks then they would most likely stay much longer than expected to your great inconvenience.
If this is the case possums won't just get up and leave of their own accord, the need for a possum removal and proofing expert would be high.
Possums Just aren't welcome
But why would Brisbane home owners want to refuse accommodation for these Australian protected animals?
“Possums are creatures of the night where they do their foraging in richly planted areas like your nearby vegetable garden to devour your garden plants and vegies.
Just as when you are about to doze off in your much needed sleep, that would usually be the time the tired little cute possums would scamper home from working on graveyard shifts, to settle down in a nice warm dry ceiling for a well earned rest”, Mr Possum says.
What would ultimately be a problem beyond the nocturnal noises would be the foul smell their squatting presence brings. As creatures of the wild, possums are not properly toilet trained and so you could not expect for them to aptly use your bathroom for their natural needs which you won’t allow anyway.
The animalistic urine and faeces they inconsiderately dispel just above your cosy classy bed would not only irritate your sensitive Brisbanian nose but would also turn your once heavenly ceiling into a real hell of rotten possum waste.
