    Don't Share Your Fort Lauderdale Home With an Opossum—Remove It

    Opossums are the only marsupial mammals residing in North America and are a general nuisance for the residents of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They invade private homes and attics, spread fleas and cause significant damage. Opossums prefer to live in residential areas, where food is easy to find, predators are scarce and shelter is sturdy and dependable. The ease with which the opossum can adapt to urban living has made it one of the most common wildlife species that invade homes and properties in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has generated the need for opossum removal and control services.

    From the destruction that the opossums cause inside your attic, to urinating and defecating all over your home, to the fleas that they carry, it is essential to contact a professional animal removal company in Fort Lauderdale when you suspect you may have an opossum on your hands. They are not violent and do not attack humans when disturbed, instead producing various warning noises or entering a state of shock, known as “playing opossum.” Opossums are famous for this shock-like position, which they can remain in for up to 4 hours.

    Opossums are magnificent climbers. When they are not using their strong prehensile tail for climbing, the tail of an opossum is used as their fifth limb, or agrip to stockpile leaves or other debris used to build their nesting sites inside of your Fort Lauderdale, Florida home. Omega Animal Removal is adept at quick, efficient and cost-effective control of opossum infestations. We operate with an in-depth understanding of their behavior patterns and biology.

    Omega Animal Removal Can Help With an Opossum Infestation

    As soon as you identify that your home has been invaded by opossums, contact Omega Animal Removal and one of our Opossum Control Specialists will organize a meeting at your Fort Lauderdale, Florida house. We will properly inspect the property, find all debris and traces of urine or feces and recommend a custom resolution based on the level of damage to your home. We look for tunneling signs inside of the insulation, feces and urine, and any other type of debris gathered by the opossum(s). As soon as our Opossum Removal Specialists have all the needed facts, they can advise a complete solution to ensure that all opossums are removed, all damages repaired, all waste cleaned and the whole space decontaminated and sanitized. Our approach to opossum removal and control includes the Guarantee that no other opossum will find any unclosed entry point to re-inhabit your Fort Lauderdale, Florida home.

    1. The first step of the process is to perform our full exterior and interior evaluation of the premises and develop a custom plan for trapping and removal.
    2. The second step is to trap and safely remove all opossums from your Fort Lauderdale, Florida home, crawlspace or attic. This step is done only with the use of live traps and excluder valves. Our specialists never use any lethal trapping methods, and will always treat the animals as humanely as possible.
    3. The following step involves the identification of all entry points used by the opossum to enter your Fort Lauderdale home, and sealing them with weatherproof metal products, so that the opossums, or any other wildlife species cannot re-enter your house.
    4. The last step of our approach to opossum removal and control is performed by our Opossum Control Specialist, and involves the removal and decontamination of all urine, feces, nesting places, debris and waste. Due to the fact that opossums carry a lot of fleas, mites and parasites, the removal of the insulation is the best way to ensure that no health hazards are left behind.

    As soon as all the aspects are discussed with you, our Opossum Control Specialist will apply a three-phase fogging treatment that will assure the decontamination and sanitization of all crawlspaces and of the attic. Omega’s Opossum Control Expert will blow-in a new wool fiberglass blanket insulation, to an R-38 value. For this step, our team only uses Knauff JetStream Insulation, as this is the best insulation on the market.

    Once we perform these four steps, and complete the opossum removal and control process, along with the sanitization, sterilization and decontamination, we will offer you the Lifetime Guarantee that comes with all Omega Animal Removal services in your Fort Lauderdale, Florida surroundings.
