Opossum Removal Services In Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX & Surrounding Areas

Our specialists can minimize the damage and health risks to your Houston area home or property. Opossums can destroy yards, gardens, and attics while infesting these areas with their disease-carrying fleas. Opossums are scavengers by nature leading them to occupied buildings where they seek shelter and food. Opossums are omnivores, meaning they will eat anything including meat, pet food, and rotting carcasses. Opossums are nocturnal and will usually be heard in the attic at night time. Opossums in attics, under sheds, and in yards have become an increasingly common find in Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas due to the rapid land development and property growth.

Opossums in Texas are an extreme health risk to humans and their pets. Due to opossums being opportunistic scavengers, they often come in contact with building occupants and their pets. Opossums are not very fast and will often stand their ground when threatened. This can lead to a nasty bite from a mouth bearing 50 sharp teeth. Opossums are carriers of fleas, ticks, and many parasites. Their droppings present several health risks such as leptospirosis and salmonella.

Opossum Facts:

a possum in the dirt
  • Opossums are a carrier of fleas and commonly cause flea infestations.
  • Opossums are North America’s only marsupial, (like a kangaroo) meaning the tiny young grow in the mother’s pouch, and then cling to the mother’s back.
  • Opossums have the lowest brain to the body mass of any mammal.
  • When threatened, opossums sometimes feign death or “play opossum”.

It is extremely important for opossums to be removed immediately! Opossums can cause a very costly flea infestation in your home or business while exposing the occupants to fatal diseases.
