  • 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 Missouri'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 Missouri'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 Taney 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 Branson animal control for wildlife issues.

Branson Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I feed a baby opossum I found?

Opossums are a marsupial animal that can be found in some areas. The female opossums carry and nurse their babies in their pouch. They do this until their babies are about two to three months old. They are also carried for another one to three months on their back until they can finally go out their dens. They have fifty teeth and their hind feet looks like the human hands.

In addition to that, they climb and carry leaves back to den to comfort them. However, they do not hang by way of their tail. They are indeed nocturnal and solitary type of animals. They also like it avoiding confrontations. If they are cornered, they will growl or hiss and fall into a shock state.

A Baby Opossum Needs Assistance

If ever you have found a baby opossum, it is important to remember that it needs assistance. It may have long been separated from a mother opossum. And, its body may measure eight inches long. It is not that old enough to live on its own.

Rehydrate It

If you will still wait overnight for a licensed rehabilitator, you need to re-hydrate a baby opossum. If it already has warmed up, it is about time to make a fifty-fifty solution. This solution will include a water and Pedialyte OR Gatorade. Give it a warmed liquid using a syringe. Never ever force it if it does not swallow. Doing so only causes aspiration which you would not want to happen, of course.

Do not feed it Any Formula or Milk

Never attempt in feeding it any formula or milk. Especially if its eyes are still closed, it must be stimulated. This way, it can finally urinate and then defecate. After it is hydrated completely, it will be necessary to wipe its genital area using a cotton ball. Moisten its genital area using warm water.

If ever you have found a four-inch long opossum and its eyes are open, it is better to feed it an applesauce. But, it should be just a little amount. This should be provided for only a twenty-four hour period. This should be done before you take it to the licensed rehabilitator.

Keep it Warm as Well

You need to keep a baby opossum warm as well. It should be placed inside a box that is lined with a very soft rag. The lid should also be secured properly. If there is a heating pad, better to turn it on its low temperature.

Now, you have learned what to do and what to feed an opossum!
