Opossums in Florida – Aaah a rat! Nope, think again. What you’re actually spooked by was an opossum. Opossums are actually the only marsupial in South Florida. A female opossum can have about 2 litters every year. Each of the litter can have anywhere between 6 to 12 or even 20 young babies. Due to the increased population of opossums and urban neighborhoods in South Florida, these critters are more and more prone to invading your home or business.
Opossum in the attic – Opossums are very quiet but very skilled climbers. The most common place to spot an opossum is on your fence line or mango tree. Once they find a safe place, they will find their way into your attic. If you have an opossum in the attic, don’t hesitate to call a professional wildlife trapper for help.
Opossum in Yard – It’s very simple to have opossums invade your yard. Opossums are attracted to items such as food, fruits, trash, etc. Especially any pet food. Fruits trees are definitely a great attraction for opossums and will keep them invading your yard throughout the year in South Florida.
Opossum in Garage/Shed – A lot of times I hear, “I have an opossum in my shed!” Perhaps you haven’t re-organized that shed since last Christmas. Or maybe you needed that one tool you haven’t seen in a couple of years. For one reason or another, you go to the shed and realize there is a possum living here. Sheds are great places for nuisance opossums to hide and nest. It provides a safe environment away from other predators or other critters.
