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

    Opossums are marsupials native to North America and frequently found residing in attics in Plano, TX,  and other parts of the southern and western parts of the United States. People often assume opossums’ shy nature precludes them from taking up residence in homes and offices, but these creatures have no qualms about taking advantage of the dual convenience of ready-made shelter and food available in man made buildings. They eat anything from pet food to waste found in your trash cans, so it is important to keep your food in concealed locations and a sturdy lid on your outdoor trash bins. Make sure your pet food is not left outside.

    Opossums are solitary creatures, typically about the size of a large cat. They are some of the most common creatures to be found residing in attics and crawlspaces and the damage caused by a single opossum can be astounding. They destroy gardens and lawns while scavenging for food and digging up worms and grub. They steal food and upend your garbage cans as well as bringing leaves and debris in your home to create nests. The most hazardous element of an opossum infestation, however, is the health risk associated with being in proximity with the fleas, mites and parasites that they carry. These can cause severe allergic reactions in humans and pets and spread rapidly throughout the home. Full attic restoration is often necessary once an opossum has taken up residence.
