Pest Opossums

Wild Animal
Opossums are the only marsupial (pouched mammal) in North America.  Many people also refer to them as possums.  They have a prehensile tail and an opposable thumb.  These animals typically give birth early in the year.  Baby opossums stay in the pouch for several months before they emerge.  As many as 20 can be born to a litter but only half of them usually survive.  Once they emerge from the pouch, the baby possums will ride on the back of the mother. As she travels to forage for food, if the babies fall off, they are then on their own. This is why very young opossums are often seen  without the mother. Opossums are omnivores and eat a wide variety of food. They will inhabit burrows, under decks, crawlspaces, outbuildings and attics.  They are more often found in crawl spaces and lower areas of buildings.

Do Opossums Carry Rabies?

They get a bad name because of their looks but in actuality, they are very docile creatures. Rarely do they carry rabies. They hiss and open their mouths in a defensive tactic when confronted but will quickly roll over and play “possum” if the intruder persists. When living under a house, they will create a mess. They will have a large latrine, in which the droppings and urine have a horrible smell. The ductwork and insulation tends to get destroyed and the vapor barriers will need to be replaced. They do not have a long lifespan in the wild and therefore many dead ones are removed also from buildings and crawl spaces.
