Opossums (also spelled Possums) can be an extreme nuisance to your living environment. Whether they are in your attic or finding their way into your home or office, it is important to get the problem remedied before they become a larger problem.
Common Reasons for Opossum Trapping
Opossums can cause a lot of damage
They destroy electrical wiring, air conditioning duct work and dry wall. Opossum removal is essential to prevent costly damage in the attic.
Opossums are unsanitary and could cause negative health effects
They typically leave their feces and urine on the attic insulation and in various places in your home, or office, producing a strong and repulsive smell, and could also cause negative health effects. They can also have as many as 15 surviving young at a time. If the Opossum or one of its young fall into a wall space and can’t get back out, it will die and cause a terrible smell. The smell of a dead carcass can increase when it begins to decompose. The dead animal carcass is also covered in parasites and additional odorous bacteria that really need to be removed.
Opossums carry diseases
They are one of the largest carriers of the Cat Flea which can carry multiple diseases. Also, if it feels threatened, it will bite. Trapping and removal should be left up to the professionals.
