About Pest Animal Removal Norfolk and Our Services:
Opossums, just like the other urban Norfolk creatures will stay in the place that provides them a higher rate of survival. There are some reasons why opossums will be beneficial to your surroundings. They will eat insects that destroy your plants. However, there are also reasons why you don't want them anywhere near your house. Let us discuss some methods on how you will be able to drive away this unwanted guest.
How to Keep the Opossum Away from Your Shed or Porch
Before we start the removal process, you will have to determine first the type of Virginia opossum that is lurking under your shed or porch. For the US residents, this will usually be the Virginia opossum. Knowing what type of opossum you are dealing with can help you increase the success of exclusion. Communities with opossums are generally considered cleaner compared to others without them. You might want to think twice before you evict them in your community. Nonetheless, here are some ways to do it.
Clear the Pet Food
The scent of the pet food can easily capture the interest of the Norfolk opossum. If you don't want them under your shed, be sure to take the pet food inside especially during the night. The pet food is a good source of protein for the opossums. This is a perfect alternative to the insects that they love to eat. You shouldn't blame the opossums for taking advantage of the pet food that you left outdoor.
Remove the Rotten Fruits on the Ground
Another thing that can attract the attention of the Virginia opossum would be the rotten fruits that are scattered on the ground. Make it a habit to clear the rotten fruits. Throw them in your garbage can or compost pit and make sure that it will be properly covered. Harvest the ripe fruits in advance to avoid inviting the nuisance creatures.
Eliminate Their Access to Possible Dens
The opossums will not stay under your porch or shed if they won't be able to create a den. You should try to install barriers under your porch using wire mesh or hardware cloth. You also need to get rid of the brush piles, concrete slabs and any dilapidated structures that they can use as their habitat. Possums will also take over the abandoned burrows of other animals. Fill the abandoned burrows with stones before covering it with dirt.
Finally, the Norfolk opossums under the porch can also go indoors at night. Be sure that you will completely secure the pet door since this can provide them with an immediate entry. If they are already inside our house, simple scare tactics will be able to encourage them to get out of our house. The opossums will rarely stay in one place so you should not necessarily be concern about them. However, for the pregnant opossum, they may choose to stay longer in your house while they are rearing their babies.
