Opossum Removal in Columbia South Carolina
A opossum or possum in South Carolina weighs about 4 to 7 lbs. and stands 6 to 8 inches high at the shoulder. Females produce at least 2 litters annually in their southern range.
Opossums carry diseases such as leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis, trichomoniasis, and Chagas disease. They may also be infested with fleas, ticks, mites, and lice. Opossums are hosts for cat and dog fleas, especially in urban environments.
Thanks to its repulsive smell and the size of its droppings, opossums are responsible for some of the most rancid infestations of any North American animal aside from a skunk. Due to an opossums size and neutrality in preference for focusing on a home’s attic or crawl space, opossums are one of the most destructive species to have in a home. Most homes evaluated where an opossum intrusion is noted are often accompanied with a rodent infestation.
