opossum removal
  • Because opossums enter your buildings by climbing; you may notice exterior damage first. Opossum damage can take the form of torn shingles, ripped soffit, siding eaves and gutter systems.

  • Opossums are a large north American marsupial, the noise they generate will be loud. They have a loud range of vocalizations that include hissing and shrieking. Mothers make lip smacking sounds to call their young. If you notice these noises inside your home or buildings, you most likely have an opossum infestation. As opossums’ nest, they make lots of ripping, scuttling and scratching noises.

  • Opossums are particularly drawn to cat food, if you have cats particularly outdoor cats you will see your pet food disappearing more quickly. If you suspect you have an opossum infestation, make sure to safeguard your pets. They could be injured in a fight.

  • One of the most distinct signs opossums have invaded your home or buildings is a foul smell. Opossums defecate more frequently than other mammals and their droppings can be as large as a house cat’s. These wet droppings can soak into building materials and insulation causing a very unpleasant odor.
