The Miami Valley is home to the Virginia opossum (Didelphimorphia) or common opossum—the only marsupial living in North America. Opossums in the Dayton area have 1-2 litters per year of approximately 8-11 joeys or baby opossums per litter. Given such the large litter size, it is very important to start opossum control at the first sign of a problem to prevent a large infestation.

Leptospirosis PDF Fact Sheet  

Leptospirosis is a disease caused by a bacteria called Leptospira. Human disease is associated with contact with wild and domestic animal urine, and opossum and rats are both vectors. Leptospirosis is spread mainly by contact with water or soil contaminated by the urine of infected animals. Persons can get the disease by coming into contact with wet soil or plants contaminated with animal urine. The disease also can be transmitted through direct contact with urine, blood or tissue from an infected animal. The bacteria can enter through broken skin or through the soft tissues on the inside of the mouth, nose or eyes. It is generally not transmitted from person to person. Symptoms of leptospirosis include high fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, conjunctivitis (red eyes), diarrhea, vomiting, and kidney or liver problems (which may include jaundice), anemia and, sometimes, rash.

Barnes Wildlife Control Opossum Removal Tips

BWC - #1 in opossum knowledge
#1 Remove the Temptation

Barnes Wildlife Control Opossum advice: baby opossums are very cute but do not handle them!

Opossum or possum (http://writingexplained.org/opossum-vs-possum-difference) extermination is something that can be done any time of the year. The first thing to do is locate and remove attractants, as opossum are opportunists and will take advantage of any easy meal or place to live. Clean up waste, food scraps, mulberries fallen in yard, and birdseed. Do not feed your pets (dog, cat, etc.) outside if possible. If you compost or store garbage outside your garage, keep in animal proof containers.

#2 Limit Accessibility to your Structure

The majority of nuisance opossum calls we receive occur when possums gain access to your garage, home, barn or shed. Opossums are able to climb, but they are far less agile than Raccoons or Squirrels and often enter at ground level and only climb when necessary. So be sure to keep your garage door closed when not in use, attic doors and entry way doors shut, close walk out basement doors and window wells off, and remove any overhanging tree limbs to prevent them from easily climbing on your roof. Install vent covers of roof and attic vents or screens, and repair any openings along the foundation and crawlspace to prevent opossum from wandering inside your home.

#3 Opossum Deterrents and Repellents

We have found no effective possum repellent on the market and therefore cannot recommend one. However, residences with dogs seem to be less victimized by opossum invaders than those without, but be sure to keep the pet food stored to prevent a dangerous encounter.

#4 Opossum Trapping and Removal
Barnes Wildlife Control Opossum advice: Please do not bother a mother opossum and her babies. She can be very protective and give a good bite.

If all else fails or you are already in a situation where a opossum family is calling your residence home, then the only remaining option is capture and removal. Call Barnes Wildlife Control at (937) 340-1867 today if you are searching for a Opossum Pest Control Exterminator.

#5 Opossum Damage Repairs and Exclusion

Once the opossum problem is remedied, the best option to prevent this from reoccurring is to seal off the damaged areas or close the openings that they entered through. If they have been living in your attic or under your porch or deck for prolonged periods of time, fecal matter and urine buildup can be dangerous and emit unpleasant odors. Barnes Wildlife Control can repair these entry points permanently and restore you attic to new by removing the fecal matter, sanitizing the attic area, and installing new insulation in its place.
