For many homeowners, the back yard is a sanctuary to come to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature. This peace is disturbed when possums get in the area, and they forage around and potentially destroy the plants and flowers you worked so hard to grow. Remove these opossums from the equation before it’s too late.
Identify the Problem
Identifying an opossum problem should be your first priority. These creatures enjoy areas near tree crevices, wooded areas, underneath decks, and brush piles. After rummaging through your garden for nesting sites or food, there will be some tell-tale signs left behind. Look for droppings, overturned garbage cans, and tracks. Opossum poop is sort of identical to dog poop, only it tends to have tapered ends and is sually a little smoother.
