How to Help Possums Move Along

When encountering possums in unwanted areas, it’s important to handle the situation with care and consideration for both the possums and your property. Firstly, avoid direct confrontation with the possums as they may feel threatened and become defensive. Instead, gently encourage them to move along by creating loud noises or using bright lights to startle them.

Another effective method to help possums move along is to eliminate potential food sources and shelter on your property. Secure garbage cans, remove fallen fruits and trim overhanging branches to reduce access to food and nesting sites.

Additionally, block entry points to buildings and structures to prevent possums from seeking shelter indoors. Providing alternative habitats for possums can also encourage them to move along peacefully. Install possum boxes or nesting boxes in nearby trees or bushes to offer shelter and protection. These boxes mimic natural tree hollows and provide a safe refuge for possums to rest and nest.

If possums persistently return to your property despite your efforts, consider seeking assistance from wildlife professionals, local animal control agencies, or possum removal companies. They can provide guidance on humane methods for possum removal and relocation, ensuring the safety and well-being of both the possums and your property. By implementing these strategies, you can help possums move along peacefully while minimizing conflicts and disturbances to your property.
