I have a possum in my roof!
What to do?
Brushtail possum is the most widespread marsupial native to Australia. It can be found in forests and woodlands. They are also well adapted to living in urban areas and cohabiting with humans.
Possums are territorial, competing for dominance and living space. As the human population increases the possum’s natural habitat has been destroyed, resulting in them finding your home as a new place to live, moving into walls, roof cavities, chimneys, gutters or any place that they might find comfortable, warm and safe.
It is illegal to relocate possums to a distant area as they won’t survive so we at Mountainwide Pest Control will relocate them nearby but away from your roof or property. Contact us now to discuss the problem.
Humane Possum Removal. Residential - Commercial
Do not attempt to remove a possum yourself. They look like gentle creatures but they can hurt you. However, don’t panic. Call Mountainwide Pest Control. We have the equipment and tools to deal with the problem.
We will use the most humane techniques and we follow the national wildlife environmental procedures to safely remove and relocate possums.
Dead Possum in your roof, wall cavity, chimney, fireplace
If you find that there is a bad smell coming from the roof or any other part of your property, you might have a dead possum or a rodent problem. It is important to deal with the problem as soon as possible as this can attract flies, making this situation an extended problem. Either way contact us now, we have the appropriate gear and equipment to remove it and Eco-friendly and industrial odour treatment.
Bad odour and sanitation
Possum and rodents can carry fleas and ticks. Once a dead possum’s body cools down, fleas and ticks need to find a new host, a warm-blooded body. This can be a threat to you or your kids’ health, or to any pet living with you.
We offer a separate treatment service for bad odour and sanitation to prevent the spread of any other infestation. Contact us now.
Blocking possum access and repairs
We will block any access caused by possums found in your property and we will repair any damage caused by them.
We always monitor and follow up any treatment or service we provide. As part of our service, and for your peace of mind, we always keep in touch with our customers, reassuring them that we are always here to help.
BIRD CONTROL AND REMOVAL
There are more than 30 bird species in Australia that have managed to live near and interact with humans. Only a few have become a nuisance and invasive to properties: pigeons, mynah birds, sparrows and common starlings.
Pigeons: This bird can cause extensive damage if you find them roosting in your property or business. Pigeons, like any other birds, are living host for parasites that can be a threat to your health, your kids and your pets at home. Droppings are the most common hazard to humans and can cause extensive damage to business properties and home owners.
Mynahs: This species is not native to Australia. It is an invasive species and is a threat to Australian native birds and their habitat, killing the young, destroying their eggs and even killing small mammals. They are originally from India and migrated to Australia causing extensive damage to fruit plantations, cereal, wheat and rice crops that are close to urban areas.
Mynah birds can carry the avian malaria disease and parasites that can cause dermatitis in humans.
Pigeon/bird removal and control
Mountainwide Pest Control applies different methods and techniques to block, remove and prevent pigeons and other invasive birds landing on your house or property, making roosting and nesting inhospitable to them. We provide a safety bird management plan across Bathurst and the Blue Mountains. Contact us now to discuss your problem.
Sanitation and control for fleas, mites, lice, ticks and other parasites
Removing pigeons or birds from living and nesting on your property is not the end of the problem, as they can fly away from one living space and leave behind parasites that can be a threat to human health. Skin irritations and allergic reactions are the most common problems.
Pigeons and other birds are living hosts to parasites including fleas, lice, mites, ticks, and other pests. These pests could potentially infest and contaminate stored products.
We provide a separate disinfection and sanitation treatment. For any bird problem, feel free to contact your local Mountainwide Pest Control.

There are numerous reasons to find rats or mice wandering inside and outside your property:
Food supplies and shelter: untidy gardens, excessive weeds, clutter along walls and fences.
Changes in weather: as winter comes, rats and mice are looking for warm places to live and breed.
Excessive rain and floods: rats move away from their burrows and holes trying to find new places to live.
Chickens - birds: rats and mice are attracted to pet food, specially to chicken and bird food.
Compost bins: unsealed or unsecured compost bins can attract rodents to your property.
Rats and mice are well known for carrying diseases. From bites and scratches to saliva and urine, rats can cause serious health problems to humans: salmonellosis, tetanus, rat bite fever, skin reactions.
Rats and mice are living hosts for other parasites like fleas and mites and they can transmit deceases if in contact with humans.
Having rats and mice around the house or property can cause other problems such as attracting a snake looking for food. This can be a threat to humans and pets. If you have this problem, contact Mountainwide Pest Control to discuss the right method and solution to your problem.

Strong smell of urine
Once they are inside, they can leave a strong smell of urine and droppings. They can cause extensive damage to wiring and air-conditioning ducts by gnawing through them. If unsealed food or stored food are left un-attended they can be contaminated and become a threat to human health.
