Mobile Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep opossums out of my garden
Back in the day, the go to method in order to keep opossums away from your property was to shoot them.
However, in light of how inefficient and ineffective (not to mention, inhumane) shooting can be, there have been steps made in order to educate the public on why shooting should no longer be the go to method. Here are just a few reasons:
- Shooting a wild animal is not as easy as just aiming and shooting. For an inexperienced marksman, catching the creature in the act can be a nightmare!
- It is not the safest of methods when it comes to getting rid of your opossum problem. Handling a dangerous firearm can be harmful for you and anyone close by so use a firearm only if you have to and do so with extreme caution.
- Local ordinances and regulations in and around your area were placed specifically with safety in mind and you should check them all out before you go ahead and doing anything. Found not following the law could land you in jail and with some pretty hefty fines to pay!
- This method is highly un-practically especially in urban and suburban areas where you may end up shooting something other than your main target. A stray bullet can very well injury a beloved pet dog or cat, or a loved one. It could also very well lead to death.
Although popular and very much out in the market, chemical deterrents don’t necessarily have the best results when it comes to keeping opossums away. Chemical deterrents also seep into the soil and destroy your garden. Not to mention because they are obviously hazardous chemicals in them, they are also dangerous for your pets and humans not just the opossums you want to keep away.
Trapping is probably one of the better methods that will be mentioned in this article. It will indeed keep groundhogs away and in more effective and efficient manner too. It is also a more humane way of doing so.
All you have to do is set up several baited cages in certain areas where you think the opossums are likely to travel and wait. Keep checking the traps regularly and see if you catch anything.
This is the second method that is a far better method of keeping opossums away from your property. It is also a more permanent method. If you decide to build a fence around your garden to keep away wild animals such as opossums, it should at least be three feet tall and made out of wire mesh and buried securely into the ground about one foot deep.
The only downside to this method is that it may end up being time-consuming and prove to be expensive but the investment might be worth it if it keeps the pesky creatures away.
