How to keep opossums away from trash bins?

Opossums and Trash Bins: What You Can Do Opossums have a knack for scavenging, but you can outsmart them. Here's how:

Tight Lids: Use trash bins with secure lids that opossums can't easily open. Bungee cords or heavy bricks can provide an extra layer of protection.

Elevate Bins: If possible, store your trash bins off the ground. Opossums are good climbers, but raising the bins can deter them.

Fun Fact: Opossums are immune to many snake venoms, making them nature's snakebite protectors.

Opossum Seasons: Opossums are around all year, but their nighttime antics might be more noticeable in warmer months.
