For Professional Opossum Removal, Call (800) 457-8630
Wildlife Removal in Virginia uses humane, time-tested techniques for opossum (commonly called possums) control and to prevent future infestations. We begin with an inspection to identify why the possum finds your home appealing. If we find an infestation, we remove the possums using humane traps. Then to prevent more opossums from disturbing your home, we use exclusion techniques to deter them. We also help you identify and secure potential food sources inside and outside to detract the possums from returning. If the opossums left a mess, our team can also clean up and sanitize the infested areas and safely dispose of any waste.
The Habits Of Opossums
Opossums are omnivorous that will eat vegetables from your garden, food scraps from your garbage, and pet food from your pet dishes. They will often take up residence in crawl spaces and under porches and outbuildings. They hiss and open their mouths in a defensive tactic when confronted but will quickly roll over and play “possum” if the intruder persists.
Although opossums will probably not physically harm you, when living under a house, they will create a huge mess. They will have a large latrine, in which the droppings and urine have a horrible smell. The duct work and insulation tends to get destroyed and the vapor barriers will need to be replaced. They do not have a long lifespan so often times dead opossums need to be removed from buildings and crawlspaces. Opossum carry diseases such as leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis, trichomoniasis, and Chagas disease. They may also be infested with fleas, ticks, mites, and lice.
