Workflow Map For A Possum Trapper

1. Initial client contact: This stage involves the first interaction with the client, where the possum trapper gathers information about the client’s specific needs and requirements.

2. Site assessment: The possum trapper visits the client’s property to assess the extent of the possum infestation and identify potential entry points and nesting areas.

3. Trapping setup: This stage involves setting up traps strategically to capture possums effectively. The possum trapper selects suitable trap locations based on their expertise and knowledge of possum behavior.

4. Trapping and monitoring: The possum trapper regularly checks the traps to ensure they are functioning correctly and captures any possums that have been caught. This stage may involve daily or periodic visits to the client’s property.

5. Possum removal: Once possums are captured, the possum trapper safely removes them from the property, ensuring minimal harm to the animals.

6. Repairs and exclusion: The possum trapper identifies and repairs any entry points or damage caused by possums, preventing future infestations. This stage may involve installing exclusion devices or sealing off potential access points.

7. Follow-up visits: The possum trapper conducts follow-up visits to ensure the effectiveness of the trapping and exclusion measures. This stage allows for any necessary adjustments or additional trapping if required.

8. Client communication: Throughout the process, the possum trapper maintains regular communication with the client, providing updates on progress, discussing any challenges, and addressing any concerns or questions.

9. Documentation and reporting: The possum trapper keeps detailed records of the service provided, including trap locations, captured possums, repairs made, and any recommendations for ongoing possum management. This documentation helps in continuous improvement and future reference.

10. Ongoing support and maintenance: After completing the initial service, the possum trapper may offer ongoing support and maintenance to ensure long-term possum control. This stage may involve periodic inspections, advice on possum deterrents, or additional trapping if new infestations occur
