Tampa Opossum Removal

OPOSSUM INFORMATION: Opossums are usually scavengers. They are active only at night. They aren't very fast or very strong or very smart, but they can eat anything and are impervious to most diseases. They are marsupials, which means that the young grow in a pouch. This happens in spring, and perhaps 4 out of 13 will survive to the departure time in June. They are good climbers, and will take advantage of any food or living space they can find. They have opossable thumbs, prehensile tails, and can "play possum", or feign death to avoid predators.

These are the most common complaints about opossums in Tampa:

  • Living in the attic.
  • Possum in garage, garbage can, etc.
  • Stealing pet food.
  • Dead opossum on property.
  • Possum living under house or bathtub.

Tampa Bay Possum Control Emails:
Hi Mike - I'm in Saint Petersburg -- I've got possums living under my deck. I've been browsing your website today -- it is VERY useful, I've learned a lot. So thanks for making your knowledge publicly available. If you have time to answer a couple of questions, that would be great. Of course I understand in advance if you are way too busy. a) I've eliminated all food sources and closed off all access to the underside of the deck except for "their" main entrance. There's maybe 2 or 3 of them. This evening I'm going to plant ammonia soaked rags when they exit. Have you had success with this method? b) Anticipating your answer above, do you have recommended colleagues in the Tampa Bay area? Thanks very much, Matt
