Once trapped an opossum may hiss and snarl. It’s even possible it may faint, or play “possum”, due to the shock of the experience. The fainting spell can last as long as 40 minutes and emit a foul odor to mimic the smell of a dead animal.

Ohio’s Fainting Marsupial

Opossum Removal – Professional Opossum Trapping Service

Opossums create quite a few problems for most Ohio home or business owners. Not the brightest of marsupials, they search for food in yards or places to live in or under your home or buildings.

Homeowners may notice their dogs barking at night as they detect the opossums seeking food. Leaving your bird and pet food in reachable areas attract these easy ugly looking animals. If you find opossum entering your yard regularly, your garbage cans could be your problem. Opossums will dredge up lawns as they search for grubs and other bugs, but so will other animals like skunks.

Possum can be a dangerous animal that hiss and show its teeth, an opossum can, in rare instances, have rabies. If you find opossum creating problems for you and your pets, give me a call, and I can help with your nuisance opossum issues.

Live Trapping Opossum 

You never want to kill an opossum with poison as that is against Ohio Law. This method could end up killing a loved pet, or an animal you would not want to be killed. And if anyone says that’s how it will rid you of your opossum problems please, please, don’t hire that company as there can be stiff penalties for using chemicals and poisons not according to their label. The humane and effective way of ridding you of your opossum problems is Live Trapping.

Live Traps like Havahart one door or two-door traps are effective tools for snagging an opossum. I place a trap wherever you or I have seen signs of opossum activity, e.g. a burrowing area or den site. Opossum have large litters, often up to a dozen or more, and stay attached to the jills for several weeks. Male opossums are called jacks, and the young possum are joeys,  We can trap them all for you here at GVWS and rid your property of these varmints.

Can You Trap Opossum Yourself? 

First, educating yourself on Ohio state laws about opossum trapping demands some study on your part. Ignorance of the law will not free you from possible fines if you trap incorrectly. Plus, once caught, you have to have some release or euthanizing plan that must be legal.

Trapping demands knowledge and skill, and most novice trappers make one mistake after another. I know opossum behavior, know what type of traps will work best, know how to bait a trap properly, and know-how often to check a trap. Please keep in mind that improper trapping due to lack of trapping knowledge can lead to an opossum suffering. Opossum trapping is a professional service we offer in Central Ohio so give us a call!

Also, your opossum issues might be solved by some simple preventative measures that will keep them away from your property. I can best advise you on these preventative measures as well. But, if an opossum has entered your home, especially your attic, then we may need to look at doing some habitat modifications to keep them off your roof.
