Why Opossums Cause Problems Around the Home
As omnivores, opossums will eat whatever they can find, including garbage and pet food. They have an odor and may try to nest in your home—an opossum family of seven was found living under a house. And, like rats and mice, opossums can transmit diseases to humans; when left without treatment, even minor bites or scratches from these pests can develop into something much worse. With that said, now you may be wondering: what’s an opossum exactly?
How Can I Protect My Family from Opossums?
Opossums are a pest control problem for many homeowners. As opossums feed on insects, grubs, fruit, and vegetation, it is not unusual to see them rummaging through your trash cans or compost piles. They also will sometimes nest in your attic or crawlspace, damaging insulation and wiring as they go. While their offensive odor may be unpleasant, it is their droppings that present a health hazard to you and your family. If you have an opossum problem at home, don’t hesitate to give Critter Solutions a call today. When you do, ask about our fast and affordable opossum control services that are available 24/7/365 throughout Katy Texas. Call us now!
What Are Opossums Attracted To?
It’s no secret that opossums are strange-looking creatures. They walk on all four legs, have long tails and their mouth is fixed open, giving them a perpetually surprised look. And while they may be fun to gawk at when you come across one during your nightly walk with your dog, there are real reasons to worry about opossums as pests: They tend to get into your trash cans and leave droppings behind; they carry several types of harmful diseases like distemper and rabies; they have been known to attack people and pets; and yes, their appearance is freaky!
What Do We Look for When Inspecting for Pests Like Opossums?
Good question. The good news is that opossums are typically only pests when they move into your attic, crawlspace, or walls. If that’s your situation, we’ll likely find at least some of these indicators: Presence of droppings – Droppings from an opossum could mean there’s an infestation. You may even be able to smell them before you see them. Look for locations like corners and behind walls, especially along fence lines if you have a pet dog or cat who goes outside at night. Rub marks on trees and fences – If a tree or other vertical surface (like a fence) has scratches around it and rub marks, you might have an opossum up there.
What Can I Do About an Opossum Problem Once It’s Found?
Your first step should be to call a pest control company that can help remove your opossum problem. These animals are more common than you may think, so chances are someone will be able to help you out. A professional company can use humane methods to capture your opossum and get rid of it for good. This is important because any attempts to remove an opossum on your own could result in injury or even death. Remember: The professionals know what they’re doing and how to get rid of these pests safely. Don’t mess around with them; they have fangs and claws and can do serious damage if they feel threatened. When in doubt, reach out for professional help right away.
