For those of us that are lucky enough to call the Blue Mountains & Hawkesbury region home, we face a unique problem in battling away possums! While those living in metropolitan areas may consider these critters gentle, harmless and even cute, we understand that there are many good reasons to use
to keep these creatures away from your house and family.
Understand The Dangers
First of all, they pose a threat to the health of your family and animals in many ways. The Brushtail Possum is known getting into vicious fights with family pets, particularly cats. In these fights, they can cause some serious damage to your beloved four legged friends. They carry diseases including tuberculosis, tularemia, spotted fever and coccidiosis that can be transferred to both animals and humans in a common scratch or bite. To cause even more of a headache and pain for your family, they also carry other infections which include lice, fleas and mites.
While a possums goal may be to hunt for food, they can leave a trail of noise and destruction in their wake as they search across lawns, around bins, and other storage areas. This is why it is important to remain vigilant and keep a close eye out for possums in bushland surrounding your property.
