Milwaukee Critter Tip of the Month

How to Get Rid of Opossums - Opossum as being one of the scavengers is looking for the food near human settlements. The animal won't change- it's in their nature to look for food, water and safe places for nesting. People are the ones who must take care of food and water sources won't be reachable in the vicinity of their homes. Possible entry points have to be repaired otherwise this is an open invitation for opossum to enter their home. The animals will gladly come, no need to worry about that.

Fencing your home is the best preventive solution in order to keep opossums out of your property. You will get the best protection with L-footer fences. However, before placing the fence, you need to make sure; no unwanted visitors are already in your home. While opossum is out on the open at night only you won't be able to see him much, but there will be very obvious indications of its invasion in your home. Places that need to be checked for opossum's presence are attics, basements and places under buildings, decks or patios. In case you might have an unwanted visitor some repellents might be used like:

  • Seaweed, spicy mixtures, garlic and water,
  • Dog or cat hair
  • Coyote urine
  • Ammonia and moth balls
All of the above mentioned might be used, but will there be any long-term effects? Well, that is entirely different question. The only effective solution is trapping and relocating the opossum. The best and most humane to use are large traps that catch live opossum and do no harm to the animal. They have to be placed on the right location and baited correctly, in the way to lure the animal in entering the cage. After opossum has been trapped, transport and relocation to more suitable environment must be arranged. Even though the relocation is never easy on the opossum it is much better than killing the poor creature.

Some people prefer killing over trapping and relocating the animal. But you need to ask yourself, is killing really necessary? There are some things you have to consider if you take this path. The first thing is of course the obvious one. Poisoning and lethal trapping are utterly inhumane and can kill other unwanted targets as well. Shooting an opossum is quick and effective, but you need to remember all the things that have to be done after the shooting. Taking care of carcasses and disinfecting the area where the animal has been killed.

If you take all these facts under consideration, you realize there is only one proper way how to get rid of opossum. And that would be trapping it and relocating to a better environment, providing food, water and shelter for the opossum.
