Possum Trapping & Removal

Behavior & Risk of Possums in Your Home

Possums are incredibly smart, adaptable creatures that thrive in urban and suburban environments, where human shelters and food are plentiful. These creatures are great climbers, and like to get into attics, under porches, and other warm, dry areas, especially when raising young. They are also expert scavengers, eating out of garbage bins, pet food containers, and the like. While they may look threatening, possums are generally docile and don’t care to interact with humans. However, they can cause a great deal of destruction if not dealt with properly. If you suspect possums in your home or on your property, give us a call at Metro Wildlife and Pest as soon as possible.

Act Against Your Possum Problem

Possum trapping and removal in Charleston is sometimes a challenge, which is why it pays to work with a professional. They can cause quite a big mess, leaving urine, droppings, food, trash, and nesting materials everywhere. Baby possums also tend to get lost or trapped in tight spaces of the home, after they fall off their mother’s back. Not only do possums rifle through trash and food stores, but they can also leave droppings all over your property, take up residence in your shed or attic, and can also harbor dangerous diseases like rabies. When you want to finally get rid of these unwelcome guests, our team of friendly, experienced wildlife control experts is here for you.
