    Will a possum return?

    Possums are highly territorial, and if one possum is removed from an area, it is likely that another possum may take its place in the vacant territory.

    Will possum eat rat poison?

    Possums are resistant to rat poison and most other toxic substances, except for neurotoxins. They have a peptide in their blood that makes them immune to many poisons. Since rats' bodies do not produce neurotoxins, possums are unharmed when they consume rats that have ingested rat poison.

    Therefore, it is essential to be cautious when using rat poison to control rodent populations, especially in areas where possums are present, to prevent harm to these native Australian marsupials.

They return to their roosts in the early morning hours before daylight.
