Possums, like many other small and medium sized mammals, are hosts for ticks looking for a blood meal. But opossums are remarkably efficient at eliminating foraging ticks. A single opossum might kill an astonishing 4,000 ticks in a week.

Are you in the USA? I've never seen an opossum that looks quite like that. Otherwise, very cool?

Also, why do you kill the cats?
They decimate the birds, wrens and the like, as well as other native animals.

Cool trap, but I have to admit, that doesn't look like any opossum I have seen in my backyard! What is it really?
Edit add: just seen your post above. Have to admit that your possums are much cuter than ours in the USA!
