Haines City Opossum Removal

Opossums are nocturnal scavengers that love to dig around Haines City homes and businesses. While you may want to deal with these critters yourself, it’s better to call in a professional. Fortunately, Critter Control® of Polk County offers safe and cost-effective opossum removal services for your Haines City property.

3 Signs of Opossums

Opossums are smart, and they’ll descend upon your property in search of food, water, and shelter. If you notice any of the following signs, it may be a good indicator that an opossum is nearby.

1. Growling and clicking noises – This is how opossums communicate with each other.

2. Brown droppings and stains – Unidentifiable stains, paired with an unpleasant smell, is a sign of opossum feces.

3. Distinct large and small pawprints – An opossum’s front paws are smaller than their back paws, making their tracks unique.

It’s important to call Critter Control® of Polk County as soon as you notice any signs of opossums. The longer you wait, the more severe and dangerous their infestation could become.

Threats Posed by Opossums

Opossums are normally docile creatures, so if they feel threatened, they probably won’t attack you. Instead they’ll either run the other way or “play opossum” and act as if they’re dead. However, in the rare event that they do engage with you, opossums can pass on mites or diseases to you through direct contact with their fur or feces. Additionally, opossums can cause property damage. When they search for food or shelter, they can tear up your yard and scatter trash throughout your property.
