  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Baltimore county 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 Dundalk animal control for wildlife issues.

Dundalk Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove opossums myself?

Should you really hire a pro, or remove opossums by yourself? It will be a wise decision to just hire a pro. This should be your response when it comes to these animals. This will safely and effectively get rid of them. If you will remove them by yourself, they are more likely to bring harm to you. This is because they are known as carriers of a lot of disease like leptospirosis, tularemia, and rabies. That is why it is a must to ask for help from professionals.

Do More Research

Before doing things concerning opossums, it will help doing more research. It will do well if you will educate yourself more. This way, you will be educated on how they really behave. You will be able to know what they are like.

Shooting as Not the Best Alternative to Removing Opossums

By researching, you will understand how shooting won't help removing opossums. It can really be very dangerous targeting them with a stray bullet. And, you might just hit them. They won't die away but they can turn out to be more aggressive than before. That is why you need to educate yourself and stay calm.

Other Preventive Techniques

There are so many preventive techniques that you can try doing. In all these techniques, prevention comes as the easiest method. This is especially when you noticed that they just entered your property. Habitat modification will also help to keep the property clear and clean of debris.

Traps and Repellents

These are considered as effective methods of repelling opossums. These are definitely a more humane, better and safer way of removing them than shooting them. Repellents are also available these days. You may try any of them.


If you have no idea on how to remove opossums by yourself, it is a lot better hiring a professional for this job. This is the safest and the best solution to ever consider in mind. In this immediate situation, there's no other person to ask for help other than this professional.

However, it will also help if you educate yourself more about the preventive measures to take like habitat modification and trapping. For sure, you won't get in panic right after considering these things. You will also not stress yourself anymore if ever more opossums come to your place. Don't get shocked but ask for help and educate yourself instead!
