Guide to making a possum house
- You can use any timber you like to make a possum box (except chipboard, which disintegrates rapidly outdoors). 12mm ply is excellent.
- Drill four 5 - 7mm holes through the floor of the box near each corner to allow any water that might get in to drain out.
- Nesting material isn't essential but a few handfuls of dead leaves would provide comfort and insulation.
