    Hi


    Has anyone tried one of those possum repellents that are sold for about $50 online? If so did it work? I'm getting despondent with possums eating silverbeet, parsley, peaches and boysenberries :( any ideas?


    Regards

    Jeremy, this link was really helpful. I think I will put small plastic bottles over my passionfruit!

    Very helpful site Jeremy - I hope. I now have a dead possum in my plum tree!

    The suggest from Peter about half round PVC piping placed vertically along the top of fencing seems a great idea. Anything to put a break in their highways is a great idea.
