Opossum Proofing, Exclusion & Trapping Services in the NYC Metro Area
Like all pests, Opossums are considered a nuisance for property owners throughout the New York City Metro area due to their constant scavenging for food. This doesn’t just end in your garbage can either, they have been commonly known to take up residence within your attic, garage, crawl space, and underneath decks or patios. We also get calls about Opossums invading offices, buildings and additional places of business.
They aren’t just a hazard to have around due to their eating habits, Opossums carry parasites which transmit disease. They include all the popular pests as well including Ticks, Mites and Fleas. If you manage to get bitten or have an infestation from one of these parasites, this will turn into an entirely different nightmare.

Health Risks Involving Opossums & Our Solution Towards It
If you encounter them or have an infestation, we suggest you give us or another professional Wildlife nuisance removal company a call immediately.

Their urine and droppings also contain bacteria which pose health risks to humans such as Salmonella and Leptospirosis.

The Appearance of Opossums
What can we say besides the fact that they look like gigantic hairy rats? Their nose is hairless and their bodies are covered in white and gray fur. You’ll also notice that their ears are black and they have black rims around their eyes.
Like rodents, they have excellent climbing and crawling abilities. This is what makes it so easy for them to enter your property. They can climb or crawl across branches, power-lines, you name it.
