Opossums will do significant damage in your crawl space or attic if allowed to remain. They will destroy your insulation, rip apart electrical wiring, and ruin the dry wall. Opossums leave their feces and urine all over the place which produces an unbearable odor. Our trained opossum removal professionals will come to your house or business to discuss the removal process.

The opossum is the only marsupial (pouched mammal) found in the United States. Possums have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. They are unusually resistant to the venom of venomous snakes and are extremely unlikely to acquire rabies. They have 50 very sharp teeth, more than any land mammal.

SIZE: 6-13 lbs, body length of 12-20 inches, tail length of 15 inches.
