Habitat & Diet
The Opossum can survive and thrive in various areas including in urban developments. They tend to burrow in dark places such as under a house, inside of tree holes or in another animal’s den. Opossums are scavengers by nature and are known to raid home trash cans and large dumpsters for whatever scraps they can find. Also included in their diet is nuts, fruit, grass, insects, mice, worms, snakes and much more.
Once opossums enter you home they cause considerable amounts of damage. Opossums burrow their way into air vents, and then get stuck in crawl spaces while trying to find the perfect place to nest. They’ll tear apart any material they can find to use for bedding, no matter what material it is.
As the animal nests in your home, their behavior can be unpredictable. They give off foul odors from their droppings as they commonly defecate quite often. What was once your attic is now their private restroom.
If Opossums are not properly trapped, and removed, from the home, you could be left with a very unpleasant odor from a dead opossum.
