Opossum removal experts
Opossums are primarily nocturnal (active at night). They are the only marsupial (pouch bearing) mammal in North America. They can have a litter up to 14 and a gestation period of only 2 weeks. Opossums are opportunistic scavengers’, they will steal garbage and pet food which usually causes problems for people. They can distress pets, and if cornered, they can give a nasty bite. They often like to live under sheds or decks and in attics and crawl spaces. When an opossum lives in an attic or crawl space, they leave a lot of feces and they can spread fleas and other parasites. They can also cause destruction tearing up insulation and ducts. In addition, opossums very frequently die inside buildings, inside the attic or walls, and the smell of a rotting opossum body is horrible. The best control methods are trapping and excluding any entries to prevent future entry.
