    Flies / Possum Poo

    Hi, Wonder if anyone can offer some advice. We have an apple tree overhanging our deck, which is visited nightly by possums. Every morning the deck is liberally covered in poo. If it is hot outside the poo dries quite quickly and sticks to the wood like superglue. If it is wet, the poo sticks like superglue or falls through the gaps to the dirt beneath. Either way, the area is a big attraction to flies and I need to find a solution. I don't have the heart to try and have the possums removed. An electric fly zappers is one option. But that obviously only catches the flies once they're flying around. Is there anything I can spray over the area (that won't strip the varnish off the decking) to neutralise the poo? Or what else can I do? thanks all :biggrin::biggrin:
  2. Hi, we are moving to sydney in early 2012.....For some reason i am a bit hung up on the flies!!! :confused: Do you get a huge amount more flies inland in the hills that in a costal area??

Not sure how true this is so was hoping to get someones experience of them who has experienced them especially mid summer!! :eek: Thanks Mandy :smile:

  7. Well, our visa is granted and dh flies out on 4th Feb, me and two sons aged 4 and 4 months follow on 11th March :wacko: Really nervous about flying out on my own with the boys, i know the 4 year old will be ok but just not sure how i will cope with the youngest - he will be just over 6 months when we fly - any tips please on how to stop myself from going mad! :twitcy: We are going to Mount Macedon outside of Melbourne, husband has a job and we get a house with it. Really confused about loads of things eg education for my 4year old - he is currently in preschool and loves it, Health - the costs just totally blow my mind (put a lot of confusion down to baby brain) :biglaugh: Anyhow, if anyone has any tips on surviving the move over and the flight or if anyone lives in the surrounding area of Macedon would love to hear from you. Cheers Karen

    So what about Flies?

    Hello everyone. I've been lurking around the forum for a while now reading up on Australia. I have two questions please:- 1. I absolutely hate flies. :wideeyed: How large and bad is the fly population of Australia 2. Is there any area which is better to be in for someone like me?

    Perth & flies

    Hi everyone, After researching Adelaide for so long, we are now leaning towards Perth. We feel both are right for us but we think Perth being more modern might be better for us! The only thing the missus is worried about is the flies situation! :arghh: Are there more flies in Perth, more than Adelaide & is it as bad as people say? We watched a dvd on Western Australia the other day & it showed the journy across the outback towards Perth. The person couldn't even talk to the camera as there were so many flies going in her mouth etc. Was it this bad because it was purely in the outback? The missus has a fit & goes on a killing spree if she sees too many flies in our kitchen now in UK, so any advice please. Also any pros & cons regarding life in Adelaide or Perth would be greatly recieved. I have to go now as the wife has spotted a flie in the kitchen again!!!!!!!!! :twitcy: Washo
