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

    Residential homes all over Tampa, Florida are frequently confronted with wildlife infestations, especially from species that prefer urban locations in order to find food and stay away from predators. The opossum, the only marsupial mammal found in North America is one of those species that do better in residential zones than in the wild, and you are highly likely to find one inhabiting your Tampa, Florida attic or home. If one or more opossums are in your attic, the damages can amount to thousands of dollars in repairs, decontamination and medical bills. Opossums carry a lot of fleas, mites and parasites, and can infest your Tampa, Florida house in just a few days.

    In order to perform quality opossum removal and control services, and also be able to identify the animal, it is mandatory that all specialists within the wildlife removal industry understand the behavior and lifestyle patterns of opossums. They are not usually aggressive around humans, and their defense is to produce various snarling, hissing and sneeze-like sounds or to play dead when someone approaches them. This defense mechanism of the opossum is a state of shock they enter if they are feeling threatened, also known as “playing opossum.” This is not a reaction by choice, but rather a knee-jerk reaction of the brain in face of danger. Opossums can stay playing dead for about 4 hours if necessary.

    When residing in the wild, opossums live fewer than four years, which is why most of them prefer to invade residential areas, where they can easily find food inside of garbage cans and are safe from predators. Residents of Tampa, Florida are best enlisting the services of Omega Animal Removal and our team of professional Opossum Specialists.
