Opossum – Possum Control and Removal
Possum Control – RemovalThe Opossum is a marsupial, which means that they give birth to babies at a real early stage of development, and the babies will be carried in the mothers pouch. The babies are about the size of a kidney bean at birth. The baby possum will stay in the pouch for about 2-3 months. Litters can range from 6-25 but only 13 will live because the mother only has 13 teats. Opossums give birth 1-3 times a year and usually between January and July.
Damage and Nuisance Caused by Opossums
Opossums are climbers but not diggers, which pose unique problems for home owners. Opossums will usually look for decks and sheds that are a little raised off the ground or already have an existing hole from another animal to make their den sites. Opossums will also climb on roofs to gain entry to attic spaces via roof vents, exhaust vents and/or soffits, to make a den site that is warm and sheltered from the elements. Once inside Opossum can cause very costly damage to the insulation with defecation and by compacting insulation, resulting in heat loss due to diminished R-value. Opossum removal and control should be undertaken as soon as they are noticed.
