Relocating your unwanted guest will only solve part of your problem. Here are some tips to keep opossums from coming back to feast on your garbage or nest in your attic:
– Secure Your Garbage : This one’s a no-brainer. Tie up trash bags and keep your garbage bin closed tight. Don’t leave dinner out for them.
– Seal Up Access Points : Take a walk around your house and look out for broken vent covers and gaps in your foundation.
– Remove Other Food Sources : If you’ve got fruit trees, throw out berries and fruits that fall from your trees before they attract company.
– Put Out Smells They Hate : You can make your home less attractive to these critters by setting out cans (with a closed lid and holes punched in the top) containing ammonia or mothballs (however, if you have kids or outdoor pets, we would recommend purchasing a safer commercial product).
