Maryland Opossum Removal
The opossum is the only marsupial native to North America, and though they may not seem like a dangerous animal, you can certainly run into some problems if you have opossums in or around your home. As a Maryland Wildlife removal specialist, we’ve provided opossum removal services to Stevensville, Queen Anne’s County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County, and many other areas of Maryland. We wanted to share a little of what we’ve learned about the animal.
What Exactly is an Opossum?
The opossum is an animal that is a little different from other animals. They’re nocturnal so most people rarely ever see them, and are known to play dead. It’s probably also important to note that the opossum is a different animal than the possum, the former being the animal we have in Maryland, the latter being a cousin of the opossum that can be found in Australia.
Opossums Giving You Trouble? Let Us Help.
Opossums are opportunists, meaning they will do anything in their quest for food and shelter, including tearing through your garbage and working their way into your home. Opossums are excellent climbers and have been found in all different places in people’s homes. They could be nestling under your deck or could be building a nest in your attic.
If you suspect you may have an opossum in your home you’ll want to be listening for any kind of scratching, particularly at night, as they are nocturnal animals. Regardless of what signs you’ve seen, if you suspect you have an opossum in your home you need to steer clear of it. They can carry rabies and other diseases and are best dealt with by a professional.
