Marion Wildlife Tip:
Trap a mouse - It is easy to trap a mouse, the trick is finding the mouse to trap. You may suspect that mice are in your home because you have heard noises and seen droppings. You may have even seen the mouse in all its glory. Most rodents remain invisible to the human eye, preferring to remain inconspicuous while they go about their destructive business. The only way you will be able to trap a mouse is if you are able to cut off the access points to the outside of the home. Mice entered through gaps and damaged areas of the building. These places must be repaired to prevent more mice from entering the home. If the mouse you are after is still inside, the animal will be more likely to trip the trap since it has no means of escape. Snap traps are the most effective traps on the market for mice. There are many modern styles to choose from, but the old fashioned look is just as reliable and probably less expensive. Traps should be baited and set in areas where you noticed droppings or other markings. These signs will indicate where the mouse likes to spend its time. When baiting the traps, use something that cannot be stolen from the pressure plate. Peanut butter is a favorite food choice because of its sticky nature.

Virginia Opossum-native of U.S
Otherwise known as the North American Opossum, this marsupial of its kind resembles a domestic cat in terms of its size. It is well known for its opportunistic behavior and highly prefers to live in urban areas and is highly spotted lying leisurely on roads in North America.
Virginia opossum is found in a wide range in North America all the way In Costa Rica and of today it has spread up to Toronto. It is originally a native of United States.
Different species of Virginia Opossum vary in size but on average, they have a body length of between 35-94 cm. The tail is relatively long measuring about 20- 47 cm. The males and females weigh differently and essentially, males weigh about o.8-6.4 kg and the females are lighter than this. Except for their faces that are white in color, they have dull coats .Their tails are hairless and aid when holding on plants and carrying light weights objects. Their teeth number to fifty and rear limbs are clawless. Female opossums have 13 nipples that are arranged in a circular manner with one nipple strategically placed at the centre. Albino symposiums are also common with pink eyes and feet and ears that are white in color. A female symposium has a pouch lined with wool which it uses for carrying its off springs.
At a close observation of their tracks, the prints display five toes on their fore and hind limbs. A distinctive characteristic of opossumsí hind prints is their opposable thumbs making prints at a 90 degrees angle. Opossums can make up to ten inches strides.
A funny behavior noted among opossums when it encounters a danger is pretending to be dead which makes it one of the most playful animals. This is basically an involuntary response but when faced with great danger, they can react fiercely. When it's acting dead, they can spend even more than four hours in a near coma with its eyes and mouth widely open and lying on its side.
In dietary, they are largely omnivorous. They consume plants and a wide rage of small plants such as insects. During winter season, they mostly feed on persimmons. They are also cannibals when in captivity unlike in the wild partly because of availability of sufficient food in the world. They are highly scavengers and can eat badly decomposed food remains making them survive in times of acute food shortages. Urban opossums get their food from garbage and attack poultry in their cages killing them softly in their sleep. In the wild, they predate on other animals eggs. Unlike other animals, spossums rarely hibernate in winter season and are always on the run searching for food.
During reproduction, they breed in February and when mating period is over, young off springs are born after two weeks. A litter may sum up even to 20 off springs who after birth crawl in to the pouch for nourishment. Each offspring possesses a teat which they remain attached to till they begin to leave the pouch after about a month or so. They later cling on their mothers back and follow her in her search for food till they are of age. On average, females litter twice in a year, once in early spring and the other in summer.
Virginia opossum can prove very disturbing to humans especially when they invade homesteads. One way to discourage them is introducing some disturbing noises such as a radio near garbage where they like to spend most of their time. Introducing bright lights in chimneys also scare them away. Opossums are fond of giving birth in chimneys.
