Possum Control Melbourne
'Cute' may not always be safe!
Although some might call this rodent-like creature 'cute', they are not really safe to hang around with - be it in your house or your surroundings. Possum control was not really considered a proper pest control service until recently. Their sudden increase in population has pushed them to seek shelter in rooftops, ceiling voids etc. due to lack of suitable habitat or rather the free availability of food. They generally feed on garden plants, popular flower plants and fruit trees.
