    If you are "troubled" by having nature in your yard, trap and relocate the critters. All they are trying to do is survive.

    I have opossums living in my yard - they have been there for more than the forty years I have lived here. They keep the mouse and rat problems to a minimum, they eat snails and grubs and they bother no one.

    Learn to live with the creatures who were here before you were.
    Opossums here get in your attic or under the house and cause a huge mess. Armadillo's rut up the yard and hogs do the same thing as well.

    I didn't suggest you sleep or fall in love with them. Just let them live their lives as their creator designed them.

    They are more afraid of you than you are of them.

    Besides, I am certain they are beautiful and loving to another opossum!

    I can not believe that this thread has continued this long. It is a friggen possum, for the love of God. This is not a difficult or baffling question. If you don't like 'em, make a more secure garbage can, get rid of the thing, or ignore it. K? K. Can we call this done?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    I doubt it... Maybe we should put together an expert panel from the likes of PETA and Green Peace? I'd love to see their take on this issue too

    No.

    I want to hear more about the various guns he wants to use to kill them.

    And give my input on whether or not I think it's "too much" gun.

    Do not trap any animals until you have spoken with your local wildlife and fisheries dept. In some jurisdictions trapping whether it be live trapping or killing em with a trap requires a license.
    1. check with your state dept of wildlife and fisheries.
    2. check with your local Police or sheriff's Office.

    Police others as you would have them Police you.

    A licence is easy to get so is a trap but out here you fend for your self after that unless you pay someone. So I just trap and dispose of them properly just like the game warren told me. Call the game warren before and after you take care of the problem.

    There rodents and pest like Hogs and Armadillo's

    IF ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, blow guns are an entertaining and rather sporting method of reducing unwanted rodent populations. The darts are inexpensive and they come in various broadhead/hunting versions.

    Or, try getting bigger cat.

    I know this thing has been here along time but one solution is put the cat food in the middle of the road, it will get them away from the house.
