Nuisance Opossum Control

Opossums are the only Carolina wildlife that are marsupial (pouched mammal) found in North America. Many people also refer to them as possums. They have a prehensile tail and an opposable thumb. These animals typically give birth to more Raleigh critters early in the year. Baby opossums stay in the pouch for several months before they emerge. As many as 20 of the Raleigh wildlife can be born to a litter but only half of them usually survive long enough to actually cause damage. Once they emerge from the pouch, the baby possums will ride on the back of the mother. As she travels to forage for food, if the babies fall off, they are then on their own amidst the Carolina wildlife. This is why very young opossums are often seen without the mother. Opossums are among the nuisance wildlife that are omnivores and eat a wide variety of food. They will inhabit burrows, under decks, crawlspaces, outbuildings and attics. They are more often found in crawl spaces and lower areas of buildings.

Do Opossums Carry Rabies?

They get a bad name because of their looks but in actuality, they are very docile nuisance wildlife. Wildlife control has noted in their experience that the animals removed rarely carry rabies. The Raleigh wildlife will hiss and open their mouths in a defensive tactic when confronted but will quickly roll over and pretend to be dead animals if the intruder persists. When living under a house, possum removal teams will point out that they will create a mess before the animals removed from your home. The Raleigh critters will have a large latrine, in which the droppings and urine have a horrible smell. The ductwork and insulation tends to get destroyed and the vapor barriers will need to be replaced. They do not have a long lifespan in the wild and therefore many dead ones are removed also from buildings and crawl spaces.

Dealing With Dead Possums And Other Nuisance Wildlife

When it comes to dealing with dead animals, possums are among those that can be tricky to those not knowledgeable in residential and commercial humane wildlife relocation techniques, as the possums will play dead in an attempt to ward off predators.Business owners who own smaller commercial properties can see this quickly as they might believe they’re seeing several dead animals throughout the week, when really it is only a few possums moving around and playing dead, although when the animals are dead for real then there is a quick need for reasonably priced odor control alongside the control companies possum removal services.

Another aspect to control wildlife is cleaning up animal droppings, Similar to bat droppings from Raleigh bats, all animal droppings can carry diseases that are harmful to humans. In addition to being a health risk, these animal droppings will carry the animal’s scent and can lead to an infestation of another type of Raleigh Animal, as all animals are on a search for food. Whether it is mice and rats or own dog or cat at home, many animals will follow the scent of other animals.
