How to recognize an Opossum Infestation
Homeowners most often notice opossums when they encounter them, often around a garbage cans or in attics. They are known to damage lawns too, when digging for grubs.
The opossum is the only marsupial in North America and is a relative of the kangaroo. The most notable similarity of these family members is the female’s abdominal pouch, designed for carrying and nurturing young. Unlike its relative, though, the opossum is a sluggish animal with the ability to produce a repulsive smell.
Before taking control measures, check local regulations, as opossums might be protected. If you aren’t sure of the infesting pest or that you can humanely capture it, we always recommend contacting a pest control professional for an evaluation.
