    Don't Share Your San Antonio Home With an Opossum—Remove It

    Opossums are common to the Los Angeles, California area and are frequently mistaken for oversized rodents. These nocturnal marsupials are actually more closely related to koalas and kangaroos than rats. It is often assumed that the opossum’s reputation for being shy around humans precludes them from wanting to take up residence in close proximity. This could not be further from the truth. Opossums are not afraid to take advantage of the easy shelter and food provided by homes and office buildings. They will certainly avoid making their presence too obvious, though they are one of the most common wildlife species found in residential attics and crawlspaces. They are recognizable as being about the size of a large cat and have gray/white hair with a long scaly tail about half the length of their body.

    Opossums are largely solitary creatures who eat anything and everything. It is important to keep your pet food safely indoors and to make sure you have a lock on your trash bins to prevent attracting these animals to your property. They also destroy lawns and gardens by scavenging vegetables and plants and digging up worms and grubs when possible. Opossums are famous for spreading fleas, mites and parasites throughout your residence and frequently causing allergic reactions in humans and pets. This is the most hazardous element of an opossum infestation, although the mess they create is equally as troubling from urinating and defecating all over your attic as well as dragging trash and debris into your home to build their nests. Homeowners typically have to replace their entire home insulation once an opossum has made an appearance in their attic as the parasites and fleas spread quickly through this sort of material.

    Omega Animal Removal’s team of licensed, trained professionals is unparalleled in the business. They tout a scientific understanding of opossum habits and behavior, which lends a cutting edge in tracking and trapping these evasive creatures. Our exhaustive method begins with determining the scope of the problem and then removing all animals present within the building. We then seal all entrance points with a special metal-based solution that no animal can chew through to find its way back into the home, covering the material to match your exterior paint job. Finally, we decontaminate the entire space affected by the opossum’s presence and repair any damage done to the building’s structure and insulation.
