Sherwood wildlife control tip of the month:
Opossums are animals with highly developed smell. Could be lured or driven away on that basis. There are a lot
of homemade, natural or store-bought Sherwood animal trapping repellents.
Natural repellents: One of the natural smells that bother
opossum is the smell of seaweed, which is some kind of a natural repellent to an opossum. Just place it near its den
and wait for what will happen. Molasses with water is said to be repelling to opossum as well. And here are some other
natural Sherwood wildlife removal solutions how you can try to get rid of opossum. You can use spicy mixtures, garlic and water, hot mustard mix
and many more. After brushing your dog or a cat, store the leftover hair and use it as another repellent for opossums.
It will recognize it as predator´s smell and won´t be so brave, as the opossum´s natural reaction would be to avoid conflict
and not to attack.
Store-bought repellents: Other segments of repellents are those bought in store; mothballs, ammonia, coyote urine. Coyote urine
or any other predators smell will help keeping away the opossum. Those are just few of possibilities you can use. For somewhat
effective usage, damaged areas must be defined. Opossum’s area of movement would be most likely in surroundings near trash cans,
vicinity of fruits, berries and bird seeds, under porches in the attic or basement and several other locations. After you pin-point
these locations you can place electronic Sherwood pest control repellents. One of them is an electronic water sprinkler, which detects motion and engages
in a way that sprinkles some water on the animal. You can imagine how annoying that is. Regular radios can be used as well and some
electronic pet repellents with high-pitch ultrasonic sound blasters.
Do repellents really work? As mentioned there are many ways and Sherwood exterminator solutions how to keep away the opossum with repellents. Is this a
long-term solution? Unfortunately, not... At start they might get bothered or evens scared a little, but as they learn that repellent
won´t do nothing to them it becomes obvious very quickly, they aren´t going anywhere. Opossums feel much more threatened by a scare tactic
than a repellent smell. Sprinkler could be considered as a semi-solution. However, the only effective way still remains a proper trapping
and physical removal of the opossum. Repellents might do the trick for some time, but they are certainly not a permanent Sherwood animal control solution. The
little thing will actually learn to like the smell as oppose to hate it.
