Opossum Control for Orlando, Florida
Opossum
Opossum cause problems both inside and outside a home.  They enter attics and crawlspaces for warmth and safety; and often to birth and raise a litter. Outside the home, they slink undereath decks, poop in swimming pools, tear apart screened-in porches, and rip through garbage bags.


Wildlife Patrol solves opossum problems inside or outside the home through live snaring and trapping depending on the situation.


1). Inside The Attic
Opossum in attic or crawlspace work is solved via our standard animal inside home protocol:

1. inspection    2. trapping    3. repairs    4. decontamination

During the inspection, we investigate the property to determine the problem animal is opossum and then search the attic for signs of a litter. Opossum babies may still be in the mother's pouch or if older, can be scattered across the attic where they can be a real challenge to remove. Wildlife Patrol does everything possible to get the litter safely out of the attic. We often finish jobs started by other companies where babies are left behind to die.

Our goal is to capture the mother and babies together, so they can be relocated as a unit. In situations where the mother cannot be trapped, the babies are taken to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.



2). Outdoor problems
In Orlando, there will always be opossum outside. Outdoor trapping is setup to target the problem animals. Trapping to outdoor problems is done with live humane traps. Trapping continues until problems cease.

For defecating in pools, tearing through porch screen problems, etc, if trapping is not performed the problem animals will continue their harmful behavior indefinitely. No repellants work for raccoons. The only way to stop the problem is to trap and remove the problem animals.
