About Opossums

Opossums, North America's only marsupials, are known for their distinctive appearance, including a hairless prehensile tail and a remarkable ability to "play possum" when threatened. These nocturnal creatures are opportunistic omnivores, feeding on a wide range of food items such as fruits, insects, small animals, and even carrion. Opossums are highly adaptable and can thrive in various environments, including urban and suburban areas.

Opossums are excellent climbers and are capable of utilizing elevated spaces like attics, garages, or sheds as shelter. Their adaptable nature and ability to find food in different environments contribute to their presence in residential areas.

Hazards Associated with Opossum Infestations

While opossums play a role in controlling insect and rodent populations, an infestation on your property can lead to several concerns:

  • Property Damage: Opossums may cause damage by creating nests in attics or crawl spaces, tearing insulation, and scratching surfaces. Their presence can lead to costly repairs and compromise the structural integrity of buildings.
  • Disease Transmission: Opossums, like other wildlife, can carry diseases and parasites that pose a risk to humans and pets. The feces and urine of opossums may contain pathogens, making proper cleanup and sanitation crucial.
  • Unpleasant Odors: Opossums can leave behind unpleasant smells from their urine and feces. This odor can permeate through the property, causing discomfort and lowering the overall quality of living.

How Opossum Infestations Happen

Opossum infestations often occur when these adaptable creatures find suitable conditions for shelter and food on a property. Factors contributing to opossum infestations include:

  • Access Points: Opossums can enter buildings through openings such as vents, gaps in the roof, or holes in the walls. They may also take advantage of pre-existing openings created by other wildlife.
  • Food Availability: Opossums are attracted to properties where food sources are abundant. Access to outdoor pet food, bird feeders, or unsecured garbage can lure opossums closer to human habitats.
  • Warmth and Shelter: Opossums seek shelter in warm and secure places, making attics, crawl spaces, and sheds ideal nesting sites. Once they establish a presence, they may reproduce, leading to a growing infestation.
