Opossums will take shelter in residential and commercial properties, usually under porches and patios, or in attics, sheds, barns, and garages. When it comes to diet, opossums are scavengers and will eat virtually anything, even garbage. So trash cans and dumpsters are at risk of continued nuisance animal activity if proper precautions aren’t taken. They are also known for their aggressive behavior and commonly harass other animals, particularly pets. This is alarming since they are also known carriers of several parasites and infectious diseases, including the Rabies virus. So when opossums are around, it is vital to take control without hesitating.
