Do Possums Eat Pumpkins?
Possums are interesting animals that are often found in yards and on farms. They can be both beneficial for the ecosystem and destructive to your plants if you have a garden.
Possums do eat pumpkins. These animals love pumpkins just like you.
Ripe pumpkins are delicious for Possums and they will always come back to your garden for more if you give them the chance.
Possums can dig through wooden fences. If you see a hole of 3-5 inches (or more) in your garden fence, it could be an indicator of the presence of Possums.
Check for Openings in the Fence
Carefully observe the bark of trees around your garden. You should see some recent or recurring scratch marks on the bark of trees if Possums are around.
Scratch Marks in Tree Bark
Possums do not dig holes in the ground nor actively transport through underground tunnels, so if there are holes present in your garden, the culprits may be other animals and not Possums.
