We were informed today that the good news was that the noises coming from the ceilings and walls was not an Australian native possum but rats. The possum man told us that there is no doubt that this house has had possums previously however the rat droppings were newer than the possum droppings. Also possums are territorial enough that they would kill a rat living in “its” space. Now the rats don’t explain all the noises which means that the possums are on the roof while the rats are under it. Not to sound too mean or morbid but hopefully the possum people can get the rat bait up there soon and the rats eat it and leave the house before they perish.
