Why Has a Possum Chosen My Property?
As mentioned, possums are great climbers and love to explore wherever they can. If there is any area of your property that is vulnerable to wildlife intrusions (such as an unrepaired hole in the roof), there is a good chance that a possum will discover it and find their way inside. During their baby season, which begins in March and can often extend until August, possums are even more on the lookout for safe spaces to raise their young. Possums are also considered to be highly opportunistic feeders, and are attracted to bird feeders, pet food, accessible garbage, and fallen fruit. Any access to easy food, water, or shelter can mean an encounter with one of these animals.
