    Opossum Control

    We’re Just One Phone Call Away!

    Opossums weigh about 4-14 pounds and are about the size of a house cat. They have coarse blackish gray fur, a white face, pink nose, and pink tail. Opossums are most active at night when they will scavenge for food in dumpsters and garbage cans. They have also been known to eat pet food that has been left outside and also nuts, fruit, insects, and grass.


    Trapping is the most common way to remove an Opossum from your property. The trap is set near the site where the Opossum was last spotted and a food bait is laid out near the trap to entice the pest to enter the trap. Once the Opossum is in the trap, Nuisance Wildlife Rangers will retrieve the trap and humanely remove the animal.

    How to Get Rid of Opossums?

    About the Animal

    Opossums are the only marsupials in North America. They’re omnivores and scavengers, which is why you’ll often find them digging through your garbage.

    Unlike other mammals, opossums rarely get rabies because of their low body temperature. Yet you should still try to remove them quickly, as they carry diseases like leptospirosis, tularemia, and toxoplasmosis.

    Trapping Opossums

    Trapping is the most common way of removing opossums. It’s straightforward and humane, which is why it’s the preferred method at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers.

    Step 1: Find the Opossum

    Opossums can show up anywhere in your home, including your attic, under your porch, or outside. You should follow the signs they leave behind to figure out where they live.

    Step 2: Gather the Needed Supplies

    Trapping requires a lot of preparation to be effective and safe. You should get a suitable live trap as well as gloves and a mask to keep yourself safe from the animal’s diseases.

    Step 3: Set the Trap

    With everything you need in hand, it’s time to set the trap. You should place it near the animals’ nest to improve your chances of catching them.

    You can speed up the process by adding bait to the trap. Good choices include pet food, fish, and apples.

    These animals are surprisingly intelligent, so it’s helpful to cover the trap with leaves or other debris to match its surroundings and lull them into a false sense of security.

    Step 4: Remove the Opossum

    Once you set the trap, you should check up on it frequently. This way you can remove the opossum as soon as it’s caught.

    At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, we only deliver humane solutions to wildlife problems. Part of that involves relocating animals five to ten miles away from your home, which prevents the opossum from finding its way back.

    Preventing Opossums

    Trapping an animal is great, but it’s often better to use exclusion techniques as they’re more humane and prevent the animal from bothering you in the first place.

    Step 1: Eliminate Entry Points

    Over time, your walls and fences develop holes that animals can get through. By taking the time to inspect your home and seal up all entry points, you prevent nuisance wildlife from bothering you.

    Step 2: Improve Your Fence

    Opossums are excellent climbers, so they can easily get across your fence if it’s short.

    The best solution is to add a bar roller to the top of your fence. This makes the animal slip and fall as it tries to climb it. You could also install a taller fence if possible.

    Step 3: Remove Food and Debris

    Removing garbage and securing trashcans is a great way of preventing opossums. It removes the animals’ source of food, so they’re less likely to show up at your home.

    Decluttering also leaves the animal with fewer places to hide, so they’ll be more cautious and skeptical when they think about entering your home.
