OPOSSUMS

Professional Opossum Removal in Philadelphia & Tri-State Area

Opossums, more commonly known as possums, are very common wildlife pests in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware. They are known to enter homes or businesses through a pre-existing opening in search of a warm place to sleep or raise their young. Opossums are opportunistic scavengers, becoming quite nasty on their hunt for food. They pose a threat to pets and humans because they can bite and spread diseases like tuberculosis and can be infested with fleas or ticks. Opossum removal should only be handled by trained professionals. 877-BUG-FREE is trained in the safe, humane methods of baiting, trapping and removing opossums from your property.

Opossum Removal & Control Services

If opossums are becoming a nuisance in or around your residential or commercial property, the best way to get rid of them is through trapping and removal. Fortunately, they are one of the easier wildlife pests to catch since they are highly food motivated and not very intelligent. Our technicians will do a thorough inspection of your property to identify all areas of opossum activity. We’ll then set up live traps with bait in those areas and return to your property every 1 – 2 days until all possums are caught. We follow all local and state regulations to properly relocate the animal to a better suited environment.

Nuisance Wildlife & Opossums Exclusion

Even though our technicians successfully removed your current opossum pests, effective exclusion solutions must be put into place to ensure another infestation does not happen. Easy opossum control methods include:

  • Garbage cans with secure locks
  • Do not leave trash or food (even pet food) outside
  • Install exclusion fencing around your garden, deck, porch or shed.
  • Pick fruit & crops from your garden when they’re ripe. Do not leave rotten crops on the ground.
  • Seal all entry ways in your home’s foundation.
  • Look for existing animal burrows & fill them in with dirt.
