24-7 Emergency Opossum Removal

The moon is out, everyone is soundly tucked in bed, and suddenly there’s a bump and a thump, followed by an unearthly shriek. With his piranha like teeth and amber glowing eyes, we’d much rather the bump in the night be a ghost but it’s not. It’s a long-nosed, disease infested pest and he’s made his way inside. He’s wonderful at playing dead and loves to screech, growl, hiss, clicking and chattering his teeth as if it were something right out of a horror movie. What is this sneaky, disease-carrying creature you ask? The opossum. He’s found shelter inside your home and he’s not planning on going anyplace anytime soon.

About the Opossum

The opossum is an adaptive creature. It is ordinarily a tree dweller but once the cold weather sets in, it naturally can’t resist the warm and cozy atmosphere inside our homes. Taking advantage of food scraps, it will gladly make a nest anywhere in our home where it will be left undisturbed. We’re all familiar with opossums playing “possum” when threatened. They’ll fall to the ground, hang tongues out of the sides of their mouths, excrete feces and a liquid substance that smells horrible. When threatened they won’t always play possum. Opossums will attack as a last resort, especially while carrying their young. They carry their young on their back until the babies are big enough to survive on their own. The young are difficult to detect because they are tiny and blend right into the mother’s fur. Opossums are generally very docile creatures, but if they feel threatened, they will stand their ground or attack. The razor sharp, pointed teeth and sharp claws can cause serious injuries, especially to small pets.

Opossums Can Be a Danger

The real problem with opossums coming into our homes is the damage they cause and the diseases they carry. Many people don’t know what a danger opossum actually are. For one, they are infested with fleas, ticks, mites, and lice. These parasites thrive on the opossum and once inside, they will infest our homes, our pets, and even ourselves. Flea infestations on opossum are especially concerning because of the transmission of flea-borne typhus. Flea-borne typhus is common with opossum can be spread to humans and pets.

While illness from typhus is typically mild, most people infected develop fever, chills, headache, and muscle aches for 1-2 weeks after the bite. In some cases, a rash may begin on the chest, spreading to the sides and the back, and can result in hospitalization. Opossums carry a host of other diseases. They are known carriers of diseases like Leptospirosis, Tuberculosis, Relapsing Fever, Spotted Fever, Toxoplasmosis, Trichomoniasis, and Chagas Disease.

Opossum can wreak havoc inside your home. The most significant damage they cause is from the waste they leave behind. Their disease infested fecal matter will quickly be all over the place they inhabit and their favorite spot in the home is the attic. Opossum excrete very large feces that has a distinct smell that will permeate through your entire home long after the opossum is captured.
