Humane Possum Removal & Exclusion Services

Possums, scientifically known as Didelphimorphia, are fascinating creatures that have adapted uniquely to the Coastal North Carolina environment. With a prehensile tail and opposable thumbs on their hind feet, possums exhibit remarkable dexterity. Their pointy snouts and large, round eyes aid in nighttime visibility. A standout feature is their rat-like tail which can grip branches, allowing them to traverse urban and suburban areas with ease. Despite their rat-like appearance, possums are marsupials, carrying their young in a pouch, and they're the only marsupial native to North America.

However interesting these animals are, it's not fun dealing with a situation where they have overrun your property. If you need humane possum removal services in Southport or nearby, Manning's Pest Control is ready to help.

How Do You Get Rid of Possums?

When possums overstay their welcome, it's crucial to address the situation swiftly. Begin by eliminating easily accessible food sources, such as fallen fruits, open trash bins, and bowls of pet food. Minimize hiding spots by keeping your yard tidy and well-lit. If you encounter a possum indoors, open doors and windows to guide them out. For persistent cases, rely on humane live traps baited with fruits like apples. Remember, it's advisable to consult professionals for safe possum removal, especially if you're uncomfortable handling the situation independently.
