Humane Opossum Removal in Michigan

Opossums (or possums) are common and bothersome scavengers in North America.

Got An Opossum Problem?

Possums are common invaders of human homes and enjoy building their dens in attics and garages. In the process, they can destroy ductwork and other installations. Opossums are opportunists looking for any kind of food source. Other evidence of their activity includes garbage being tampered with and the presence of their droppings. They also raid people’s gardens and farms.

You might smell an opossum before you see it since they can play dead for up to 45 minutes while emitting a foul odor. But they can also be aggressive. Contact Creature Control for local wildlife removal services to address your possum problem.

Our Method for Opossum Control

First, we’ll need to confirm an opossum is causing the issue, find all entrances and exits, and determine the best course of action to remove the opossum from the property.

The most effective solution for opossums is to live trap them. Our trapping techniques focus on the problem animal itself, while trying to avoid any non targets during the process. Our exclusion style trapping also resolves the issue quickly and cost effectively.

Any entry locations the opossum utilized will be sealed up for the long term, preventing entry from other opossums or any other burrowing animal, so you don’t have to deal with the issue in the future. We want to solve your animal issues once and for all!
