A All Animal Control of Louisville is knowledgeable and well-trained in how to handle any nuisance wildlife problem. If you contact a Wildlife Professional at the number above, you will be well taken care of no matter what the problem is – even a ‘possum under the porch.
The opossum, pronounced simply ‘possum by many, is the only living marsupial in North America. This means, that the ‘possum is a mammal, like us, but it is a marsupial mammal – a mammal with a pouch where its young can finish developing. It is possible that you’ve seen one and said to someone nearby that it looked like a GIANT rat. But in fact, it isn’t a rat at all as rats aren’t marsupials. It’s just that nearly naked tail that seems to throw everyone.
‘Possums are a greater physiological interest than a nuisance. They are usually solitary, come out only at night, and feed on carrion, rancid fruit, and insects. However, they need a place to stay during the day, and your home probably provides the ‘possum with several places to hide – including the porch, patio, deck, etc. ‘Possums are great climbers, but an easy hiding place like the space beneath the porch will do just fine.
If a ‘possum is staying at your house, it can easily come out each night to cause problems. If you do happen to end up with a ‘possum under your porch, you will probably also have outdoor pet food stolen and garbage raided. You may also have problems with your bird feeders. If you have any sort of problem with a ‘possum, contact A All Animal Control of Louisville to remove your problem ‘possum.
