Atlanta Opossum Control & Removal
|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.
Opossums are a common nuisance animal in southeast Georgia. In Atlanta and Fulton County, possum have become a particularly common problem, as they have invaded many
homes in the area. If you need a professional solution for your Atlanta possum problem, give us at A Wildlife Pro a call.

I need you to ID some droppings. I believe they match the description of opossum droppings, but since they are in the crawl space under our home, we need to know so we can figure out when the critter would be gone so we can block off the hole it has created beside the duct behind the heat pump. I stuffed the hold lightly with plastic shopping bags yesterday, and so far that has not been disturbed. The hole is not apparent outside the wall in the soil. Would they have a tunnel from farther away? We have plastic down in one corner of the crawl space because we use that area as our safe spot during storms. Unfortunately, one of the latrine areas is on that plastic, as well as in another corner on some black plastic. Also there are feces scattered about in other places. Best I can tell, they all appear to be rather old and dried up so maybe the animal has moved on. We have never seen an entrance hole beside the duct’s sheet metal cover. The cover comes down pretty close to the soil line so we can’t figure out how an animal this large could get under it so as to go through the wall beside the duct, but that is what has happened. Is there a chance there is a tunnel someplace, coming up underneath the duct cover where we cannot see it? The cover is riveted on so it would be difficult to remove to check. As I said at first, I stuffed some plastic bags loosely in the entrance holes from the inside, and nothing has disturbed those as yet. I am hoping the fellow is gone! Where can we get safety gear to wear when we do the cleanup?
We need Atlanta opossum removal. Thanks for your help!
Hello Atlanta Wildlife,
sorry to email you , we do not know each other but came across your website and I would like to
ask you a question given your expertise.
I rescued a possum (since she was a baby) and now she is domesticated. I am planning to let
her be wild again and release her. I have two questions:
1)While I let her be wild, can I get any disease I should know of?
I am planning on leaving her on my yard and let her catch things there until i know is ready to be
released. Right now she is in our house and is used to eat our cat food so if I drop her off, she will
die I think.
2)Do you know of a good area to drop off possums? How can I know of a good area on my state?
I appreciate your help, thank you
What do you do with the possums after catching them? just a few minutes ago i stopped my dog from killing a possum in my backyard it was the first time id ever seen it. i do not know if it resides any where on the property but it
hasn't been a problem really if it has. i just want to know what happens to them when you catch them i
don't want to make of fuss of nothing and have it killed for no reason
by an Atlanta possum control company. I like animals though concerned for mine, a large dog capable of taking care of herself.
I'm more worried about the possum then anything else in this situation...poor thing. and i read about them a bit before i found your page and i understand it can hurt my dog but my dog can KILL it and i
don't want that I'm scared to let the dog back outside, for the possums
safety. it looked about a foot long...i don't know if its full grown or if its male or female, or if it has babies so you can understand my concern. oh please write back as soon as possible...my dog does have to pee. lol
