Many of Louisiana'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. We specialize in solving Louisiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local St. Landry Parish animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Opelousas animal control for wildlife issues.

Opelousas Wildlife Removal Tip: What is an opossum's natural diet, and how does it get its food?

The diet of the possums includes just anything available. They are just omnivores, they eat meat along with veggies, but they can eat anything depending on the availability of the food. Possums are also known as the only marsupial in the Northern part of America and it has gained its status for cleaning up the rotten fruitlets as well as nuts from the trees, they are also known to eat departed wildlife from the verges of streets as well as whatever is available. Unluckily, they also have a pension for green plants and that may mean that there will be less tomatoes to can this year. More particularly, the food they will eat will include small rodents like rats, carrion, cockroaches, bird eggs and others.

Possums are nocturnal and they look for food when nightfall, they stay in the dens, but they were known to travel more than 2 miles to look for food. Because of this, relocating them will be very hard, since they can travel more than 2 miles to look for food. Relocating them must be more than 10-15 miles. The possums were very prominent in the northern part of the US, because of some physical characteristics to help them along. Their tail can help them get the food in a quiet manner. Their tail has been made as a defined one and it helps them to clasp for food. They can curl it around the branches of the plants to aid them in rising as well as in balancing as well. Opposing the famous belief, they do not consume the tails for hanging, it will just be for a minute or two to help them move freely on the trees. This is more prominent among younger than in the older possums.

The diet of the possums also contains thumbs from the fingers of dead animals, they can grab them and hold them and make them their food, which is like eating a finger food at the grocery store. This is comfier for them in the first place. Their diet is typically dependent on the season, because during summertime as well as fall they eat fruits, since this is the time when they are so abundant, they also eat natural fragilities such as tomatoes, blackberries, acorns and others during the fall or winter, but they will feed on the larvae as well as insects when the weather is hot. The diet of the possums can be annoying for humans. In the yard and in the gardens, the possums may easily ruin the vegetation, create a mess around the garbage area and steal the dog and cat food as well. However, their diet plays an essential role in human beings and in the ecosystem as well. They eat the foods in your garbage bin and they will also eat rotting animals.
