Do I contact the RSPCA if I have a possum problem in my roof?

Hi Frank, I’m guessing you have a possum living in your roof (very common situation). Your best option is to find the spot they are coming in and out of by stuffing some newspaper in the gaps during the day and wherever it has been removed the next morning is the trouble spot. Then you either wait for them to leave at night (about 9-10pm) and fix the hole so they can’t get back in, or, during the day you can put a one way flap that they can push out to exit but not back in to return. If you do happen to accidentally trap a possum inside when you fix the roof then you can call the RSPCA.
