Opossum Experts with Decades of Service

Opossums are omnivores who seek out bug, insects, eggs, plants and fruits. And while they are also skilled climbers, opossums cannot run very fast, so they often resort to "playing possum" (playing dead) if they feel they cannot out run what is threatening them. However, if this marsupial feels threatened, they will stand their ground and fight, making them very dangerous, not because of the bite, but because of the potential exposure to the fleas, mites, ticks, or lice they carry, or the animal’s urine or droppings.

Caged Opossum

This exposure can spread Chagas disease, toxoplasmosis, leptospirosis, and more.The Virginia Opossum, also known as North American Opossum, is the only marsupial found in the U.S. and is easily recognizable by their white faces, with darkening on their ears, hands, and feet, and a hairless tail and lower fingers. Opossums will have litters of young as early as December and have 2 to 3 litters per year with an average around 8 to 9 joeys per litter. Opossums are not native to North American but were introduced in the 1920s. Since then they have been expanding their territory and are seen as far north as Toronto. Opossums do not handle cold weather very well as frost bite is frequently reported among Opossums in colder areas. It is for this reason that during the winter Opossums seek shelter in and under barns and outbuildings.
