At Animal-Pros we specialize in the removal and relocation of opossums in Palm Bay Florida. Opossums, more commonly known as Possums, are a nuisance. They come onto your property, search through your garbage for a meal, will eat from your outdoor dog or cat bowl, and can even drink from your open pool. And while the opossum is on his hunt for food he leaves possum feces and urine all around your outdoor spaces.

Opossums also like to make their home in your attic. They will exploit any opening they find in your roof line including openings in the soffit, the shingle space, roof valleys, roof vents, air conditioning openings, and more, and if a hole isn’t large enough the opossum will chew and scratch at the weak spot they’ve found until they have created a space large enough for them to move in and out of with ease and thereby causing damage to your Palm Bay home. Possums also carry fleas and ticks and can create many problems for your domestic house pets including the continuation of a flea infestation. If you are having a problem with fleas on your pets and the vet’s office isn’t able to help control the problem, you may have a possum or a family of possums living in your Palm Bay Florida yard carrying fleas and causing the infestation.

While in your attic, the possum will create himself a habitat that will include chewing on your insulation, making a nest for itself and any babies it will have during the spring months. The mother will carry her young in her pouch, she is a marsupial, for several months, but soon the young ones will outgrow the pouch and will use the nest space she created in your attic.

Opossums are dirty animals and they can carry many diseases and bacteria including rabies, they are an unwelcome guest in your Palm Bay, Florida home. Signs of the opossum include holes in your home, sounds of walking through your attic, the view of the possum in your outdoor space and yard, and evidence of an animal riffling through your garbage.
