Opossum Removal - Opossum Control - Opossum Trapping

The opossum is quite a unique animal. It is our version of the kangaroo just not as cute. Opossums are marsupials, which mean the females carry their young in a pouch. The can have 12 to 13 young that they carry and feed for quite a while after birth. Opossums also have a prehensile tail similar to that of a monkey. They can use this to hold onto things or hang. Their name (to play possum) represents a defense tactic in which they play dead to avoid attack. They look like very large rats with thin whitish gray fur and have a strong musty odor to them. They average 8-12 lbs and are approximately 2 feet long.

Opossums are omnivores and will eat almost anything, including garbage. They are opportunistic in that they will occupy already existing dens left by another animal. Opossums climb very well but move very slow. They enjoy living under sheds, decks, or crawl spaces.

Opossums are nocturnal animals that very rarely get sick but have an amazingly short lifespan (approx 3 years). Opossums create problems by leaving droppings on decks and walkways, by stealing food, knocking over garbage cans, carrying parasites, and having dens and burrows on your property.
