Opossum Habitats

The opossum is an adaptable, nocturnal, solitary animal that wanders in woody and open areas along rural and suburban habitats. They are dependent on others for their homes and cover. These resourceful critters can be found in forested areas, fields, agricultural areas or suburban areas. They often nest under buildings, create burrows or inhabit hollow logs or burrows made by other animals.

Opossum Description


​Opossums resemble giant, scruffy rats. They have a bare nose and a rat-like tail, with dirty gray-white fur. Their ears are all black or black with white tips. Opossums are expert swimmers and climbers, aided by their naked, prehensile tail. They have five toes on each foot and black eye rings. They walk in a clumsy, stumbling pattern.

An untrained property owner should not confront an opossum. This animal is quite shy and inoffensive, but will often hiss and bear its teeth when threatened. They are occasional carriers of rabies and fleas, and the ticks they harbor can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. If you think you have an opossum problem, contact Trapper Joe's office for opossum removal, control and to prevent future opossum damage

Have opossums invaded your property? Opossums can be more than just a nuisance. In some cases, they can actually cause real damage to your landscaping and exterior. Opossums are known for their tendency to wreak havoc by digging up plants and getting into outdoor garbage cans. And whether you own a home or a business, the last thing you want is a long-term problem on your hands.

Opossum Entry

Frequently, opossums are found under decks, crawl spaces, and sheds. Opossums will often burrow under the sides of your home causing damage to its foundation. Opossums can get into homes or businesses through relatively small holes, and once inside will build nests or create messes.
