Opossum Repellent - 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 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 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 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 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 solution. The little thing will actually learn to like the smell as oppose to hate it.
