Bexar County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Help! I've got opossums in my backyard!
Ok people, you have an opossum in backyard! There is no need to panic - these creatures may be smart, and let's face it, ugly too, but they are still animals, and if we humans cannot outsmart them, there is no hope! The very first thing that you should do if you have found opossums in backyard is to eliminate the reason why they are there in the first place - the food source.

Opossums eat everything, which probably doesn't help you with your battle to get rid of them. They are omnivores, which means that they eat meat and vegetables, but usually, their diet will consist of things such as frogs, birds, insects, slugs, earthworms, and snakes. They also, however, love fruit. These things combined means that your garbage can is the perfect five star restaurant for them, which is where you should start when you want to get rid of them.

Tie your garbage can lid down with bungee cords. Rope and similar materials won't work because they can claw and nibble their way through these. Take the garbage can out of the equation, and you are on your way to winning the battle - they will find another garbage can to raid through.

Do you have fruit plants or trees in your yard? You are going to have to sort these out too. This could be a much harder thing to sort out, so if I were you, I would probably try to talk to a wildlife control expert for more advice. Finally, don't ever leave food out, whether it is pet or human food. This is a huge neon light to the opossums and you are basically inviting them into your yard. Be smart - throw the leftovers in the bonfire, and move your pet food indoors!
