Possum Removal Tips

Hello, my name is Sue, and I’ve just survived a possum problem! A while ago, we had a possum make its home in our roof. While I quite like possums, this one soon got to be a problem, and we knew that we had to get rid of it. I didn’t want to harm the little fella (and I knew that the possum maybe had more rights than we did as a protected species!) so I started talking to pest control specialists about how to catch the possum and have it safely relocated. We then had to make sure that our roof was possum proof to prevent this happening again. I started this blog to pass on some of the stuff we learned about catching and removing possums. If you have an unwanted possum in your home, I hope it helps you work out what to do!

Termite Control: Tips to Keeping Your Home Protected

A little-known fact about termites is that they fall under the same taxonomical category as other insects such as wasps, ants and bees. However, one of the main characteristics of termites is that they have an insatiable appetite for timber products. This is because timber contains cellulose and this compound not only provides nourishment for the termite, but it also keeps them sufficiently hydrated.  Moreover, the wood also provides the termites with shelter, which functions to enhance their breeding.
