Opossum Removal in Lawrence, KS

  • Opossum are nocturnal. They stay awake at night and sleep during the day.  At night is when they search for food.  They do not hibernate, but they do slow down during the winter. 
  • They live in burrows and fill them with leaves and/or shredded paper. The fat on their body help keep them warm.  In the summertime they will lick and spit on themselves to keep cool.
  • Opossum scavenge for trash and they eat both meat and vegetables. They will munch on nuts, grass, and fruit.  They hunt insects, mice, wild birds, snakes, worms, and chickens.  They eat roadkill and any type of garbage.
  • Opossum reproduce twice a year. Once they mate the male which is also called the jack leaves never to return.
  • Gestation period is 13 days and give birth to an average of 20 young. The babies (called joeys) are about the size of jelly beans when they are born.  They immediately crawl into the mother’s pouch and continue to develop.  As the joeys grow older they will continue to ride on the mothers back.  They stay with their mother about 100 days.  They mature at eight (8) months.
  • Opossums will play dead and will flop to trick their predators. Playing dead will last about six (6) hours.  They are immune to snake bites, bee stings, and other toxins.  When playing dead they release a foul smelling fluid secreted from glands.
  • Opossums are better at remembering where food is than rats, rabbits, cats and dogs.
  • When threatened the opossum run, growl, belch, urinate, and defecate.
  • Opossum choice of home is the attic, under the deck of a home and crawl space. An Opossum will choose one of these structures for their personal toilet.  They will sometimes die in a wall or attic of a structure.  They are nomadic and opportunistic animals.  They rummage at night for food and will eat anything they find.  Their preference is rotting food and or carcasses.  They will stand their ground when threatened.  They have 50 sharp teeth and will use them.  They are very harmful to the pets.  They will spread fleas and other parasites.  The do not carry rabies.
  • Any mammal can get rabies; however, the chance of rabies in an opossum is EXTREMELY RARE. This may have something to do with the opossums low body temp (94 – 97 degrees) making it difficult for the virus to survive.
  • They leave a lot of droppings which pose the usual excrement health risks such as leptospirosis or salmonella.

You cannot use a repellant, as they do not work and FTC has issued a warning against the high-pitch noisemakers.
