Do you have a bird or possum problem in your home?
EVO Pest Control can safely and effectively relocate birds and possums from your home.
Australia has a rich and diverse animal population, and sometimes this can lead to unwelcome visitors in your home. With risks posing from mites and lice, allergens, disease carrying bacteria, allergens and pathogens, our furry friends can bring a whole lot of trouble to the average suburban home.
The most common animals that enter Australian homes are birds and possums.
Birds that are commonly found in roof cavities of the home include pigeons, starlings and mynas (or Indian mynas). These birds can nest and breed in the eaves, attics and roof spaces of your home. Known to carry diseases and pathogens including cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, gastroenteritis, encephalitis, toxoplasmosis and aspergillosis.
Birds can spread disease through droppings, and create airborne risks to anyone in the home, and can also carry insects such as mites and ticks, which can be found living on birds or in their nests and are easily able to transfer themselves to humans.

Possums are nocturnal creatures that enter the home only during the evening to sleep in a safe and enclosed environment. Possums, however, can carry a variety of mites, ticks, other parasites, and bacterial infections, some of which can be transmitted to animals and/or humans. Possum faeces may also carry the buruli bacteria, which can cause skin ulcers in humans.
How can you tell if you have birds or possums in your home?
A possum nesting in your home will generally come and go in accordance with its nocturnal habits, and will usually be heard walking on or around the roof or ceiling of your home during the evening hours. Droppings may also be evident in roof cavities and nearby areas.
Birds nesting in your home will usually be detectable by sound, and by evidence of feathers, nests and nesting material, droppings and mite infestation.
How can I keep birds and possums out of my home?
The most effective way to keep birds and possums out of your home is to prevent them from gaining access. This can be achieved by:
- Repairing or replacing broken roof tiles.
- Inspecting all eaves, fascias and guttering to identify possible entry points.
- Ensuring window ledges are unsuitable for nesting sites.
- Blocking entries though chimneys and flues with suitable thick wire mesh.
- Sealing all gaps around exterior roof access points.
- Keep garbage and compost bins tightly sealed to avoid attracting unwelcome guests.
