we keep having possums come into the back yard and fight each other, or the neighbours cats at night. That was until I found a solution that did not involve traps.
Who would have thought a simple mixture of a jar of Vicks Vapour rub, and a jar or vaseline, mist together, and then spread on the underneath of the top rail of the fence (I am lucky, I have the post side on my side, not the plank side) all along the perimeter fence would actually be enough to keep the possums from coming into the back yard any more. They hate the smell of the Vicks, and the only reason you mix it with the vaseline is to make it spread easier and further!
its a cheap and easy way to stop that screaming noise that used to wake us up when they were fighting in our back yard
