About Opossums: Opossums are unique animals. They are marsupials, which means that the mother gives birth to teensy tiny young that actually grow in a pouch. The opossum has a prehensile tale, opposable thumbs,
and sometimes play dead. Possums frequently eat garbage and pet food, and often live under sheds or even crawl up into the attics of homes.

Hello, My name is Russell. I live in Northeast Dallas. I am a possum hunter, and I have a year old hound that is not trained yet. I have set traps to catch a live
possum for her but every time I find the trap still open and the bait gone. So I was wondering if
there was a way that I could get a possum that yall had trapped to train my hound. I do not harm the possums at all when training..I
release them once i get the use out of them. Either that or could you help me solve my problem and catch a possum? Thanks, Russell
Hello Dallas Critter Trappers and first let me say that I just read your guide and there are many things I did not know about opossums and the proper way to trap and release them.
Just today I purchased a cage type device from Home Depot to trap a possum that has been in my attic for many weeks. I know she has already caused extensive damage as I can see the insulation and the asphalt shingles all over my yard. One thing I
suspected was that she had a litter because there has been chirping going on for the last week or so and two days ago there were two adults fighting (it sounded like two big dogs going at it). I still hear the chirping so I suspect that the mother
prevailed although as I am writing this I realize that one or more of the babies might have gotten hurt or killed. Since she is still up there I am assuming that she and all the little ones are fine.
Either way, because of the many reasons you listed in your guide, I have to remove them. My problem is that my attic is on top of an addition to the house (which I just bought last July) and there is no access up there at all. There is access to
the attic on the original part of the house but that doesn't provide access to the attic on the addition.
She has been up there since about mid January and I do not as of yet smell anything nor do I see any urine spots on the ceilings.
Should I wait until they all leave or should I cut the ceiling and get the babies out and then use your method of trapping the mom and then release them in the Dallas area somewhere far from any residence?
Or should I just call my insurance company and hope that they cover the expense and that whoever they hire to trap them will do the job right and not mistreat the animals? Also, what can I expect to pay for the trapping of the opossums?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you Valentin
Dear Sir/Madam: I have been experiencing various bothersome wildlife issues where I live in Texas,
and I think it's possum. (I also have 2 indoor dogs that are affected by these animals/reptiles). For instance, there are rodents, squirrels, large snakes, medium to small snakes, moles (or some larger ground burrowing wildlife). I have Terminix contracts also. Recently, some very smelly poop has been showing up under the hood of my car. This just started happening within the last week. First the pellets appeared small rodent-like, then yesterday the size of the poop was significantly larger (maybe a predator of the smaller rodents). I have attached photos. I heard/read that snake poop has a white cap when it dries out because of the solid and liquid excretions from the cloacae. Please help with suggestions to stop these nuisance occurrences. I am worried that snakes, etc. will find there way into the interior of my vehicle. This is totally unacceptable. It might be a community harassment issue. Thank you for your help.
