    So I've been dealing with a handful of oppossums that roam around in my backyard at night. I have tried many Methods that don't seem to work. I haven't tried trapping yet but that will be my last resort. A couple days ago a purchased a pest repeller and installed it last night. My camera caught a video of it working and it gave me the giggles. This opossum is the smaller of the 3 that visit. I love how the opposum freaked out so much it crashed into a stack of wood but then came back just to be scared off again!
