Possum Removal in San Antonio, Texas
A possum is a whitish or grayish mammal about the size of a large house cat. They look somewhat like giant rats with their pointed snouts and naked tails. Its face is long and pointed, its ears rounded and hairless. Their long, hairless prehensile tail can be used to grab branches and carry small objects similar to the flexible use of tails by rats and porcupines.
Possums are nocturnal, mostly nomadic, and common in urban areas. They are highly adaptable and can live almost anywhere and eat almost anything. They often use human shelter and food sources.
Possum control is often needed because these animals become a nuisance near homes or commercial properties. Because they are scavengers, they can come into conflict with people and pets. They also spread fleas and other parasites. Also, they frequently die inside buildings, inside the attic or walls, and the smell of a rotting opossum will permeate an entire house or building.
Possums should not be approached or handled, especially if they are with their young. If you have a possum living on your property, it is crucial to seek a professional possum removal company.
