No kidding, I'm serious, I've got rid of a LOT of possums with this, one time THREE possums at once! Use a tall garbage can with good tight lid. Remove lid, lay garbage can on its side just outside a handy door....your back door, whatever...and somewhere with a window or door slightly open (screened!) so you can hear sounds out there. Begin putting kitchen scraps in it in the evenings. Yes, start FEEDING the possums in it. Once you know you've got some possums enjiying their regular evening smorgsborg, set the can upright, still very near the door, propped up with something like other cans or boxes, both to keep it standing, AND to provide easy access to your dinner guests. Keep a listen while you do your kitchen duties, watch tv, whatever. The possums falling down into the can, thump, and then the scrtachign around to get back out, and sometimers hissing and growling if there are more than one of them, as usually pretty noticable. Don't jump up and run out the first time you hear it. Let them get comfortable about the new upright can situation. Then, after a couple nights of that, just step out and place the lid on the can, snap it on, and either haul them off a long ways in the morning, preferably across a couple major rivers, and not into someone else's back yard, to release them, or if you prefer, open the can in daylight and club them or whatever. And oh, yeah, if you happen to live on the east side of the Trinity river down here in Liberty county, please don't bring them over here to the west side of the river to dump them out! I had quite enough of them before I brought them over there to you!
