While other wild animals allow a number of different control techniques, when it comes to opossums, the only real way to get rid of them is via trapping and removal. It is illegal in Ontario to injure or kill these animals and only a certain size of cage is allowed to be used. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry regulates rehabilitation of wildlife hence opossums must be humanely removed and relocated. SOS Wildlife Control Inc. only conducts humane methods that are in accordance with Ontario rules and regulations.
Opossums are quite common in all areas across the country, they can be found in natural environments or in residential areas in your home or garage. They are classified as a pest species due to their habits of living in human residences. They are quite tame animals and can be found living in abandoned den sites, under decks, sheds or patios that have been dug out by other animals. They have a broad diet and will stay as long as there is food available. Opossums are omnivores which means anything from apples, avocados and clementine’s to snakes and carrion is all acceptable. They like dead or rotting meat so ensure to wash cans and other meat packaging before putting them into your garbage. Just like raccoons they prey on garbage. Opossums are not as strong or fast-moving as raccoons and when they are threatened they play dead and secrete a rot-like stench.
- Fleas and Ticks
The opossum is highly resistant to rabies as they have a low body temperature that the virus rarely survives in. Opossums carries fleas and ticks just like cats and dogs. Opossums do leave a lot of droppings, which pose the usual excrement health risks, such as leptospirosis or Salmonella.
