Opossum Removal in Saint Petersburg, FL & Tampa Bay Area

Opossums are the only native marsupial in the U.S. They are generally good to have around, and we do not recommend trapping them if they are only in the yard. However, if they are getting under your home or in the attic, they can do serious damage and pose problems such as fleas. Their feces can carry leptospirosis and can spore a fungus which can cause histoplasmosis, a potentially serious lung infection. When removing possums from your home, we will first seal all potential entry points, then we will put a one-way door over the most active entry/exit point. The possums will be able to leave, but not be able to get back in. Since we seal all other possible entry points first, they will not be able to get in somewhere else. Once they are gone, we will remove the door and permanently seal the final area. We will also treat the attic with an anti-microbial deodorizer with one of our cold fogging machines. This will help kill the germs and odor in the attic from the feces that is left behind.

Avoid Health Risks and Opossum Removal

Inside your property, opossums will seek out a warm place to nest and a reliable food source and leave behind disease-laden droppings. Diseases such as Toxoplasmosis, Leptospirosis, and Salmonella are just a few they can carry. Outside your property, they can rummage through your trash and any left out food. Unfortunately, if they are discovered, they have a tendency to fight back and can leave you or your pets with a nasty, potentially infectious bite or scratch.

The most effective method of opossum removal is to distribute tried and tested traps. Once we’ve caught your problem opossum, our specialists provide a humane solution, relocating the creature far away from your property. Our experts understand that there are no shortcuts when it comes to animal removal. Poisons sometimes prove to be ineffective and can inadvertently harm other helpful creatures on your property. We make a point to refrain from using poisons when we perform opossum removal for your safety and the safety of the animal.
