Possums are very persistent little blighters. This cute little possum was living in our roof after finding a space in the barge boards (the timber on the ends of the roof) and making it big enough to squeeze through into the roof cavity.
Anyway, after a week of battles with me closing up the hole whilst he was out feeding and him removing the material and breaking in again, I thought I had won. I had even built him a nice new possum box to make up for chucking him out.
The last few nights he has been back chewing and scratching – trying to remove the board blocking hole and trying to make the hold bigger. I am confident the board will stay in place – fencing screw nails with do that but I think that the battle is not over just yet…..
