☑ What to do If You Find A Possum On Your Property?
❖ The first and foremost thing you have to do is the identification of the entrance of the possums.
❖ After finding the entry points, block all the open entry points so that they do not enter again.
❖ Possums mark their living territory with the special type of odour that they secrete from their gland. So if you notice any such condition, then disinfect and sanitize that place so that no odour is left.
❖ However, if you are able to trap the possum, then try to locate them in the hollow logs in the tree and hanging wooden boxes.
❖ Obstruct entrance spots to your house from where possums can enter.
❖ Keep all the dark places lighted as possums are nocturnal in nature; they do not like light.
❖ Cut the overhanging tree branches, if any, present over your house roof.
❖ If you want to do any repair work, then the best time is during dawn or toward the day end as possums come out in search of their food.
