Melbourne, Australia's city of culture and entertainment.
The home of countless music and entertainment festivals, the Eureka Tower, Federation Square, the National Gallery of Victoria and, of course, the MCG.
Pest control in Melbourne is different than in other major cities around Australia and methods that work somewhere else do not necessarily mean they work here. Melbourne's moderate oceanic climate creates unique pest control issues like:
termites - despite the common perception that termites are only a problem further north, Melbourne now has mandatory termite protection regulations for new construction.
wasps - Melbourne's climate is typically not too hot and not too cold. A perfect combination for significant wasp problems throughout spring and summer.
rodents - Melbourne is the second-most populous city in Australia. Where there are large cities there will be mice and rats and they love to make your home their home in the cooler winter months.

The normal method of trapping possums is to place traps, which cause no physical harm to the possums, in roof voids, however they may be placed on the roof or on the ground near access points.
Once a possum is caught it must be released on the property or within 50 metres of the property after sunset. For this reason it is important that all entry points be sealed up.
