Re: Your tips for keeping possums away

Welcome to the Workshop community @kjs.

 

You could use Multicrop 2l Scat Animal Repellent which has an adjustable spray nozzle. If you adjust the nozzle to a thin spray, it will travel close to the 5 meters needed to reach the top of the plant. Spraying the walls down also wouldn't be an issue. It would be advised to spray around the base of the tree so they don't use that as an alternate route up it.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance with this product or had other questions.

Re: Your tips for keeping possums away

We have a resident possum (Danthony - named after a few drinks) and I have tried many things. The most successful has been simply throwing blood and bone around the garden beds. Gives the garden a feed as well. You can also put some in the end of pantyhose leg and hang in trees etc. This is Danthony with his (her) baby a few months. Snacking on some apple.

Re: Your tips for keeping possums away

Looks like a lovely area @MariaOAKLEIGH. I hope the ever-helpful Workshop community have some useful suggestions for you.

 

Have you tried spot lighting with motion sensors? Or Multicrop 2l Scat Animal Repellent on any nearby trees and plants that they are attracted to?

i have some good ideas now that I'll try today and over the weekend when replanting and addressing the carnage.

Cheers Kev
