Opossums are nocturnal animals and they are North America’s only marsupial. Because of their good grooming habits they eat up to 5,000 ticks per day! Their low body temperature makes them immune to many diseases such as rabies. They can help your yard and garden by eating insects, snails, small rodents and snakes.
Opossums may hiss, growl or bite if cornered but they are actually very harmless. More than likely, they will faint in shock at the prospect of such a confrontation. Playing dead is an involuntary response on the part of the opossum. The stress of the confrontation causes him to go into shock inducing a comatose state that can last from 40 minutes to four hours. While “dead,” the opossum’s body is limp, it’s front feet form into balls and drool runs out of its mouth. It may even appear that rigor mortis has begun.
The opossum’s guise of death goes so far as to produce a smell of decay. From his anal glands, the opossum’s body emits green mucus that will discourage most predators from feeding on him while he’s in his comatose state. They often take up residence under decks, sheds, porches and buildings or move into attics or inside homes. They may look frightening and may steal garbage or pet food or even harass pets but they provide a lot of good services too!

We always try to find the most humane and least stressful method to remove and exclude bats from your home or business. Bats are a protected species; therefore, we are able to offer our services in May before the bats have babies or in September before they hibernate. Our wildlife removal specialists will close off the entry point(s) and install a temporary one-way door/tunnel to let the bats leave and will not allow them to re-enter. Bats will usually leave within 1-3 days because they are hungry and thirsty, but we will leave the one-way door in place for 10-14 days to be certain. When we return to remove our temporary one-way door, our wildlife removal specialists will ensure the area is secure. We warranty all of our prevention work, including entry points, vents and any problem areas we have treated. It is also recommended that you install a bat house nearby to give the bats an alternate home, so they stay out of yours!
