opossum removal lapeer county michiganOpossum can become quite a pest to home and business owners. We normally get calls for opossum removal in Lapeer County when one has made its way into a garage to get into dog food or has made a den under a deck. Opossum are a marsupial and that means they carry their young in a pouch on their belly. They are the only one in America but do not share any the fame the marsupial most people know the kangaroo. They will get into sheds or garages and go after food sources. If you have one get into your dog food ensure that you throw it away as it will be soiled with feces and urine during the process. This will also mean it will carry disease. Opossum are known for playing dead. When the opossum feels threatened enough it will pretend to be dead so the predator will lose interest. What some people do not know is that to go with playing dead they have a smell that makes that playing dead even more believable. Most animals, even scavengers, will avoid rancid meat. If you have a opossum under your deck chances are you will smell him way before you ever see them.

Opossum removal is done with live trapping and relocation. We have a very easy time catching opossum once we determine where their dens are because they will eat just about anything. We will set the traps and once caught remove the opossum from your property for good. We can also offer wildlife proofing to deal with any entry points that were being used by the opossum to gain access to your home or outbuilding.
