Possum Removal Tips

Hello, my name is Sue, and I’ve just survived a possum problem! A while ago, we had a possum make its home in our roof. While I quite like possums, this one soon got to be a problem, and we knew that we had to get rid of it. I didn’t want to harm the little fella (and I knew that the possum maybe had more rights than we did as a protected species!) so I started talking to pest control specialists about how to catch the possum and have it safely relocated. We then had to make sure that our roof was possum proof to prevent this happening again. I started this blog to pass on some of the stuff we learned about catching and removing possums. If you have an unwanted possum in your home, I hope it helps you work out what to do!

How to Protect Your Flowers and Garden from Pests

A beautiful garden is everybody's pride. You can hang out there with your family on weekends, play some games or just lie down and get some sun. Unfortunately, pests also appreciate the sweet odor and beauty of flowers. Since the last thing you want is to share your beautiful garden with a bunch of annoying rodents, toads, and caterpillars, here are some great ways to keep pests out.

Bubble Blaster

Pests are mostly attracted to your plants and flowers because of the sweet taste and scent. There are several organic solutions that you can make at home to keep pests away and also kill them. The best formulation is prepared with water, a drop of dish soap and hot pepper. You can also add a bulb of crushed garlic and pests won't come anywhere near your garden. Neem oil is also a great pest repellent, and you only need to spray it a few times. You have to spray this solution on your plants at least once a week to ensure the taste is fresh.

Companion Planting

If you don't want to keep applying kitchen stuff to your plants o garden, you can go the easy way and just plant pest deterrents. There are plants that you can plant beside your flowers and veggies, and their work will be primarily to keep pests away with their smell or taste. Such plants include marigold, lavender, and Chrysanthemums. Pest repelling veggies include garlic, onions, rosemary, sage, and shallots. Be sure to choose plants that won't stand out from the rest of your garden plants.


The kind of trap you use depends on what types of pests are bothering you. For rodents, you can buy ready-made bait traps from the hardware store and set them strategically around your garden. For other small pests that attracted to smells, try putting a few shallow containers full of beer and others with soapy water around the garden. The pest especially slugs, beetles, and flies will be attracted to the vessels, and they will drown.

Tidy Up

One of the best ways to have a beautiful garden with minimal pests is to tidy up. Remove all diseased or attacked leaves and keep the garden clear of weeds. Maintain a clean and well-maintained garden, and most pests will not have a reason to come.

These few tips work magic when it comes to keeping pests away from your garden. However, if you have an infestation that is getting out of hand such as worms, rodents or slugs, contact pest control services to help you get rid of them once and for all.
