What's That Noise?
It's late at night and you realize that you have forgotten to take out the trash for the next morning.
You go outside into the pitch black darkness towards your trashcan when suddenly you hear something coming right from that area.
You smell a foul odor and hear rustling, but can't quite make out what it is or where it's coming from.
What could it be?
Is It Just Visiting Or Living There?
You are surprised to find an opossum and her young feasting on a carcass she had drug from somewhere else.
There was an entire family possible living on your property.
While opossums are beneficial to helping you rid your property of cockroaches and other annoying insects, they also carry diseases such as leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, and spotted fever.
The health of your family is important! Having a family of opossums living that close is definitely not ideal!
They Mean No Harm, But Don't Belong
For the most part, opossums are harmless beneficial omnivores who are attracted to areas that have an abundance of food sources. If they feel threatened, they will most likely play dead to avoid predators.
They may even help to keep out any rats or roaches, but sadly these are not creatures who should stick around for long.
