How Do I know If I Have A Opossum?

  • Opossums tear up yards and landscapes, damage electrical wires in the attic, and cause holes in the attic from entry points.

  • Opossums will generally cause scratching noises in the attic or ripping sounds as they are nesting.

  • Opossums carry diseases such as tuberculosis and parasites so its best to get them out as soon as possible.

Why Opossums Are A Problem?

Opossums will generally enter your attic, but you may also find a opossum in your yard, opossum in your garden, and if you’re not careful you may even find a opossum in your home.

Opossum  can cause major house damage especially the way they enter your house. You may see holes underneath the eaves of a house (the underside of your roof) which allows them to access the attic and crawlspace between your walls.

Holes that opossums leave can cause water damage and  cause energy bills to increase.

Opossums frequently chew electrical wires and tear up insulation.  This can cause you much money in damage not to mention it could cause a fire in your home.   It is IMPORTANT to get rid of a Opossum in your attic as soon as possible.

How Do I Get Rid Of A Opossum?

The best way to remove an opossum is to remove their food source. If there is no food source they have no reason to come back.

An opossum in the attic is a very common occurrence in cities.

We barricade the existing holes and leave one open for the one-way door. Eventually the opossum will have to get food and won’t be able to enter the attic again.
