Why do I have them?
Possums are nocturnal creatures. The possum’s nest can be in hollow logs, hollow trees, clumps of flax or gorse or in a building. Any dry, warm, secluded place is considered.
Many urban parks and reserves harbour possums and they often raid urban gardens, where they eat flowers, fruit and vegetables. Although possums are tree dwellers they will make their home inside buildings, in roofs, under floors and in outbuildings.
Possums will move over open land at speed, preferring the relative safety of trees. They leave distinct trails or pathways through grass and undergrowth. This trail, or ‘possum pad’ can lead you to their nest site when investigating an infestation. Possums prefer to eat succulent, sweet vegetation, such as flower and rose buds, fruit-tree buds, fruit, and nuts around the urban garden.
Are they dangerous?
Possums carry a disease called bovine tuberculosis (TB). They can spread this disease to New Zealand’s cattle and deer herds, causing economic loss. Possums can also damage horticultural and garden crops.
How do I get rid of possums?
Getting rid of Possums can be a difficult task as they are generally nocturnal and can move about the entire property in search of food and a place to nest.
