Of all the wildlife roaming around the Baltimore area, the creature that may be seen the least by residents is the opossum. Because the opossum is most active at night and extremely shy, they are not typically seen by Baltimore residents compared to squirrels or raccoons. However, while the opossum may be out of sight, it should never be pout of mind if it finds its way onto your Baltimore property. This is why Baltimore residents should always be aware of opossum removal. Opossum removal is necessary should the creatures find their way onto your Baltimore property for a number of reasons. Opossums can often times create burrows under your shed, deck, or crawl space, which can cause structural damage after time. Opossums can also find ways into your basement or attic, which could potentially cause damage to your home and possessions. While opossums are typically shy and nonaggressive creatures, they are known to attack if they feel cornered. This means they could cause harm to your domestic pets should the two ever cross paths. Opossum removal will help to safely remove the animal without causing harm to you, your home, or the opossum itself. If you wish to prevent opossums from entering your Baltimore property to begin with, it’s important to keep your yard free of trash, food, and pet waste. You should also close off any open areas that an opossum could use as shelter.
