At times, bandicoots and possums may become a nuisance in your neighbourhood. Both animals are protected and need to be treated appropriately.


Bandicoots are a protected wildlife and can only be removed with the permission of the State Government if identified as a major problem. Contact details for the State Government Department of Environment and Science are available online.

Further information about bandicoots can be found on the Department of Environment and Science website.


Possums are a protected species and their removal can only be carried out by a licenced person. Please refer to the Yellow Pages under 'pest control' to find a company licenced to remove these animals.
