Many of Illinois's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies.

Mount Vernon Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do You Know If You Have A Opossum Under Your Shed Or Porch?

Pest infestation in the home can take several forms, but it is really important to take immediate steps to get rid of them. If you have large rats or opossums in your premises, it is better to identify the areas where they have build nests or the points that they use to enter and exit. The sad truth is that possums are nocturnal creatures, so you will rarely come to know about their presence. They also prefer to stay away from humans as they worry of human smell and noise, so most of the homeowners fail to know about the presence of these rats in your premises. In order to know if they have build nests in your home, you need to pay attention to many other signs related to infestation. In this article, we have discussed few signs of the presence of opossums in your porch or shed area.

Experts say that possums are marsupials and they often prefer to live in areas where they can find lots of bushes and plants for shelter. They can easily rip insulation, sidings, and shingles with their sharp teeth and claws. These creatures also leave noticeable marks or stains behind with their greasy body and the scary fact is that they are good careers of several harmful diseases like tuberculosis and coccidiosis.

Signs of opossum infestation in your porch and shed

1. Possums generally prefer to get access to build by climbing up, so you may start by noticing the exterior damage caused by them. They can start by ripping off soffits and damaging shingles while getting access to the rooftop. You may also observe signs of possum infestation in gutter, eaves, and sidings.
2. Possums are more attracted towards cat food, so if you have cats in the home, you may see that their food is disappearing fast. This is the common sign of possum infestation. In such situations, it is better to protect your cat first because it may get hurt by messing up with these large rats.
3. When opossums start living in sheds or porch area, you may often hear their noise. They usually make scratching, scuttling and ripping noise that may even appear similar to mice and rat; however, this one will be louder comparatively because they are bigger animals.
4. One common symptom of possum infestation in the porch or shed is the terrible smell that is released from their body. Note that possums leave more droppings and urine in the area where they live, and it starts releasing unpleasant odor with time.

Once you come to know about the presence of opossums in your premises, it is better to take immediate steps for their removal. In case if you are not in a position to get them out of your property, prefer to call professional animal removal company to take them out as soon as possible. If you keep ignoring them, they may end up causing huge damage to your property.
