Healthy Living: Natural repellents for getting rid of possums on your property

  • Healthy Living is a life style. It is about the food you eat, the hair and skin care you use and last but not least the natural solutions you select to clean and take care of your home and garden.
  • If you have kids and pets this is one more reason why should opt for healthier options and avoid commercial pest control products.
  • Make your own repellents and you will be in charge of what goes in your home and garden. This is key to healthy living.
  • With this in mind, we have some very effective possum repellents.
  • Though typically harmless, possums have been known to cause damage to gardens.
  • They can also attack pets or even humans when they are cornered or feel threatened.
  • Take a healthy step and keep them away from your home.
  • These repellents are free of toxic chemicals, therefore they won’t harm the possums, but will deter them. These recipes will not damage your plants either.
  • Possums hate garlic, hot chilies, and Lapsang Souchong tea.
  • Garlic/hot chili repellent:
  • Mix 2 tablespoon of crushed garlic or hot chili in 1 liter of boiling water. Let it cool. Pour in a sprayer and squirt on your plants.
  • Lapsang Souchong tea repellent:
  • Mix 2 liters of boiling water with 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf Lapsang Souchong tea. Let it cool. Pour into a sprayer and squirt on your plants.
  • TIP: Tabasco sauce can be painted onto wood as an additional deterrent.
