Bruce McLaren Retirement Village

Downsizing can open the door to a new stage of your life that is rich in opportunity. However, it can be a daunting prospect. If you are embarking on a new chapter of life, the thought of shedding familiar possessions can feel even more stressful.

VISITING OPPOSUMS 24/5/24

Ragni from Pakuranga Heights

I have been regularly getting 2 opossums in my guava trees and Auckland Council has been no help nor has pest control. So it is up to me to buy a trap and try to catch them, which is really disappointing. I have a lot of bird life in the back yard and I can see the opossums scaling branches for nests etc. Next they will be in our roofs. Can someone help me or give me some advice, as they are not my pets and it should be a community concern, as I just happened to notice them in the dark by being in the backyard, while a lot of community members are in their houses especially in this cold weather.
