Critter Wranglers Powell, TN, Opossum Removal

Most of us have come in contact with an Opossum, or Possum as they’re often called in Tennessee, at least once in our lives. Because of their appetites for what we throw away, you might have seen them lingering around your trash cans or rummaging around your campsite. The site of a an opossum can be quite terrifying, with their beady eyes and sharp teeth but the chance of actually being attacked by them is relatively small.

Does it sound like something is rustling around in your crawlspace, attic or in your vents at night? You may have an opossum infestation. Here are some other signs to look for:

  • House hold pets barking at the air conditioning vents, especially at night.
  • Trash knocked over and dug through.
  • Damaged insulation in crawlspace.
  • Animal droppings.
  • A strong odor similar to a skunk at times.
  • Spotting them around your property at night.
  • Loud noises coming from the walls or floor, especially at night.

If you suspect that you are dealing with an opossum in your home or commercial property call Critter Wranglers ASAP. We make opossum removal easy!

We advise that you do not attempt to remove an opossum from your home without the help of professionals. These animals may appear to be slow and uncoordinated but in reality the opossum can move quickly and is prepared to defend itself.

Once the unwanted pest has been removed, it’s essential that you allow us to animal proof the entry and exit points to ensure the animals do not return. We also clean up the mess the pest has left behind so that other wildlife is not attracted to the area. We use quality materials and our unique animal proofing techniques to effectively seal out future problems.

With the use of cage traps we will safely and legally remove the pest from your home and dispose of the animals in accordance to your preference as long as it abides with state/federal law.

Whether it’s a onetime removal of pests or you’re in need of a monthly pest control service, we’ve got you covered. With over 35 years experience there isn’t a pest problem we can’t handle. We serve private residents, commercial spaces, and municipal accounts.
