Post possum eating magnolia
I've got a mate who has a possum living near his place (in belconnen) that continually eats the new flowers on his magnolia tree. This has been going on for a couple of years now. Anyone else have this? what do you do?

there is a product called POSS OFF... spray on the foliage and the smell/taste will deter them
