You’re sitting at home, relaxing in front of the television for a nice evening when, out of the blue, you hear a strange scratching coming from the ceiling. As you slowly climb the ladder to your attic, heart pounding, a pair of eyes gleams out at you from the darkest, deepest corner of the room. Suddenly, you know that you are not alone.
It may seem like something out of a Halloween blockbuster, but opossums in the attic are not exactly entertaining. If this scene plays out for you, consider the following steps:
To start, you may instinctively want to catch and trap the animal yourself. However, there is a lot that goes into this, so you may wish to contact your local Wildlife control Company for Opossum Removal in Dublin OH. You need to make sure that you take the necessary safety precautions, as well as the legal steps, in order to relocate the animal, should you catch it at all. Game control is a professional and complicated field, best handled by those who are certified. A good first step would be to look for Wildlife Control Company opossum removal, to help you out.
If you are brave (or foolish) enough to attempt to trap an opossum on your own, be aware that this can be dangerous. Possums could carry disease or be aggressive if they are with their young. They can spread fleas or parasites that could be dangerous to other animals or children in your house. Cleanliness is also an issue, as an opossum who sets up camp in your attic will use it as their bathroom. To catch the possum, wear gloves and approach it carefully. Waving a hand in front of its face while you grab the tail will distract it -; but please be gentle!
If you contact The Wildlife Control Company and they take care of the problem, you may wish to prevent it from happening again. There are no repellants on the market, and noise emitters aren’t proven to be effective. It may be wise to set up a trap in the attic and educate yourself on how to safely remove the possum should it return, or remember to always call for Opossum Removal in Dublin OH.
