LIVE OPOSSUM TRAPPING
Opossums are captured by Varment Guard technicians using live-catch wire cage traps. Traps are set in trails or at entrances to dens. Fish, cat food, peanut butter, fruits, and marshmallows are excellent bait choices.
OPOSSUM-PROOF YOUR BUILDING
The most permanent way of correcting opossum problems resulting from their living under homes, buildings, decks, porches and sheds is to exclude their access. This can be done by the installation of a buried wire exclusion fence. Proper installation starts by trenching around the area to be excluded. Once trenching is completed, bent 1/2” x 1/2” galvanized hardware cloth in placed. It is fastened as a skirting around decks and porches, above and below ground, this will prevent re-entry by persistent opossums.
