Pestrol Ringtail Possum Nesting Box
For many Australians, sharing your property with possums is a fact of life. The trees and garden are their natural habitat and as a result, they can become a nuisance on your property. By using a Possum Nesting Box – you will be providing a new home for your unwanted guest and keeping it away from the roof and your garage.
By providing possums with a safe alternative home location, we have found that in most cases you would be able to relocate noisy possums from your home.
Possums are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975 and must not be harmed in any way or kept without approval from DELWP.
It is illegal to harass or interfere with possums.
A possum in your roof or eating your flowers can be very frustrating, but people and possums can live together successfully by providing a new home for possums.
If you still have multiple possums in your location you may wish to consider our very popular Electronic Possum Deterrent.
The possum boxes are made out of a BC Hardwood, Exterior grade with an A-bond (Marine) glue-line.
