Re: Nature Lesson about Possums

[i]Originally posted by Lemon Meringue

Whether rural, residential or in the wilderness, opossums are a benefit to any area they inhabit. Their diet includes all types of bugs and insects including cockroaches, crickets and beetles. They love snails. They also eat mice and rats. The nocturnal opossum is attracted to our neighborhoods by the availability of water, pet food left out at night and overripe, rotting fruit that has fallen from trees. The opossum in turn helps keep our neighborhoods clean and free of unwanted, harmful garden pests and rodents, which may carry diseases. The opossum has earned the title of "Nature's Little Sanitation Engineer."
Well, someone needs to tell my possums to get on the ball...they obviously don't like the snails in my backyard because they're very much alive and have destroyed all my plants. The possums have been eating my RIPE oranges right off the trees and I've got a cricket breeding farm going on out there.

Maybe Orange County possums are different?

I still don't like them
