Getting Rid of Opossums

Opossums are unique, as they are the only marsupial found in North America. They are best known for their defense mechanism of "playing dead." These critters are nocturnal so you won't often see them. They are omnivorous, so they'll usually eat whatever they can get their paws on. 

Common Opossum Problems

  • They become very aggressive when cornered. Will often hiss and show teeth.
  • Opossums carry diseases such as tuberculosis and tularemia.
  • Opossums are usually infested with other parasites, including fleas, ticks, and lice.
