Similarly, you may ask, what will keep possums away?
To keep raccoons, possums, skunks, or other critters out of your garbage, regularly spray the side of your cans with a mixture of half ammonia, and half water. They hate the smell (as we all do) and will stay away. (You can also try using an ammonia-based glass cleaner like Windex, but it's not as strong.)
One may also ask, does vinegar keep possums away? Vinegar or Fox urine will help you get rid of Opossums. They move around at night so sprinkle, spray, or drop your vinegar when your Opossum is out for his/her dinner, of course on the spot she or he was seen last.
why do possums dig holes?
Opossums have delicate feet in which the nails easily come out, so they are not likely the ones making large, extensive holes. Small holes in soft turf are possible signs of the opossum. They dig to get grubs to eat, so if the damage isn't too bad, you might actually appreciate the insect removal from your lawn.
How do I get rid of possums under my deck?
- Encourage opossums to leave the space under your deck by removing what is attracting them.
- Trim or remove dense hedges or foliage that provides cover for their hiding place beneath your deck.
- Clean up any fruit that has fallen from trees and clear wood piles and other potential hiding places near your deck.
