Are you hearing strange scratching or rustling sounds in your walls or ceilings? Have you noticed droppings or damage to your insulation or wiring? If so, you may have an opossum infestation. Opossums can be a nuisance and cause damage to your property, but the experts at SPC are here to help. Our certified technicians have the knowledge and expertise to safely and effectively remove opossums and help prevent future infestations.
Typically, opossums enter homes and businesses through small openings, such as gaps in the foundation or holes in the roof. Once inside, they may set up nests in attics, crawl spaces, or other hidden areas. Common signs of an opossum infestation include:
Strange noises: Opossums are active at night, so you may hear scratching, rustling, or thumping sounds in your walls or ceiling as they move around.
Droppings: Opossum droppings are typically cylindrical and may be up to 2 inches long. They’re often found in areas where the opossums are nesting, such as attics or crawl spaces.
Damage to property: Opossums may chew on insulation, wiring, or other materials in your home or business, causing damage that can be expensive to repair.
Strong odors: Opossums have a distinctive musky odor that can become more noticeable as the infestation grows.
How SPC Can Help
If you suspect an opossum infestation in your home or business, it’s important to contact a professional pest control company right away. Our technicians will start with a thorough inspection of your property to identify any areas where opossums may be entering or nesting. We’ll then create a customized removal plan that includes humane live trapping and relocation of the opossums, sealing up any entry points, and providing recommendations to prevent future infestations.
Opossums are a type of marsupial found in North America. They’re grayish-white in color and have a long, pointed snout and a prehensile tail. Opossums are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plants and animals. They’re opportunistic feeders and will eat almost anything they can find, including garbage and pet food.
We offer fixed pricing for the initial humane animal trapping, and then a reduced price for any additional animals up to 30 days. The pricing will be case-by-case if we must catch or remove animals manually (without a trap).
Our team understands the importance of keeping your home or business free from unwanted pests. That’s why we’re committed to providing our neighbors with the best possible solution for your opossum removal needs. To learn more about how we can help, contact us today!
