If you want to keep opossums out of your home, there are some easy steps to follow:
• Remove the food Fort Worth snake removal sources- opossums are usually attracted to those yards where they can find plenty of
food. Do not leave them food, remove all the pet food from the yard, especially during the night, and make

• Trim the trees- if you have a tree near your house, then it would be smart to trim the branches. Opossums are

• Protect low deck- opossums can crawl under the low decks, so what you should do is to create a barrier that will
keep them out. You can use grid screenings, or solid metal flashings. Simply dig a trench around the deck, place
screening inside the trench (remember that the Fort Worth rodent extermination barrier has to be extended from the hole bottom, to the underside
of the deck), fill the trench with dirt, and attach the top of the screen to the deck. This way, the opossum will
have no chance to crawl under the deck. If you suspect that there are opossums under your deck, then simply make a
funnel with the screening, and let the opossum escape. Then, after a couple of days (just to make sure that there
are no opossums left underneath the deck) seal Fort Worth rodent extermination the screening, and it won’t be able to return.
• Seal all the open spaces- if you have any open spaces that simply invite an opossum to enter and nest, seal it.
Attic vents, chimneys, deck lattices, etc. Use steel screenings to make it impossible for an opossum to enter these
holes. If you live in a trailer, then use the screening cloth to cover the space below it. Extend the barrier from
the ground to the bottom of the trailer in order to prevent opossums from getting underneath it. An one more thing
to do if you don’t want an opossum inside your house- lock all the pet doors during the night, opossums are nocturnal
animals, and they will easily crawl inside the Fort Worth bird control house if you leave the pet door unlocked.
• Scare opossums away- you can use motion-activated sprinklers anywhere you spot an opossum. They usually go near
trees, and near garbage bins. This way you will scare them away. You can also use motion-activated lights, but this
way you will not be able to scare adult opossums who are accustomed to the presence of humans.
• Dog or cat fur- scatter the smell of a predator to scare opossums away. Do not release your cat or your dog in
order to scare opossums away, since they can Fort Worth bird control become aggressive if they are in danger. Simply collect your pet’s
hair after brushing, put them in small bags, and scatter them around to scare the opossums away. This might not
be so effective, but it can help you in prevention.
• Spread the smells opossums flee away from- you can use ammonia, garlic, and mothballs. You may
find this advice a bit ridiculous, but it can help you. Use a coffee can and pour a bit of ammonia
inside, place a rag inside the can, and Fort Worth bird control pull one end outside. Place the can anywhere you see any opossum
activity. Crush garlic, and place it anywhere you know an opossum can appear; crushed garlic will release
the scent opossums don’t like.
