Opossums might be elusive, but knowing how to spot their presence is key to managing them effectively. Keep an eye out for these clear signs:

1. Distinctive Behaviors

Stay alert for noises like rustling in the night or the clatter of overturned trash bins. These are telltale signs that opossums might be foraging nearby.

2. Visible Damage

Check for signs of disruption like shredded ductwork or insulation in your attic, or disturbances in your garden. These damages often point to opossum nesting or foraging activities.

3. Tracks and Trails

Keep an eye out for footprints featuring opposable thumbs on the rear feet, and look for droppings around your property or in muddy areas. These can indicate regular pathways or visitation spots of opossums.

Highly recommend this group!!! Within 24 hours of my “something stinks” panic call, one of the techs, Ronnie, was at our place taking care of the animals that found their final resting place in our vents… and patched it up so we wouldn’t have this happen again.
