Hi again, David and welcome back to Just Answer!My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.You can attract the possum into the trap by putting some canned dog or cat food in there, or green or yellow vegetables like corn or green leafy vegetables and they also eat fruit. In the wild, they are scavengers and are not picky about what they eat. They usually feed on carrion (dead animals), maggots, and other insects.Make sure to use a spring-loaded trap (Hav a Hart trap) from the Humane Society or ASPCA and only set it when you are around and can transport the critter to the country, immediately.I wish you much good luck!Please let me know that you found my answer helpful by providing a Positive rating.
