Dallas County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Opossum repellent moth balls - do they work?
There are a ton of things out there that have been said to repel opossums and all you need to do is take a quick look on the internet o see some of the methods that various people have had "tremendous success" with! It's funny though - however many people there are that say these methods to work, there are still millions of people that have tried and failed and still end up calling a wildlife dude in to lend them a hand anyway.

It has been said that there are various things out there that get rid of wild animals, from opossums to squirrels, mice and raccoons, and practically everything in between. These methods range from radios, moth balls, sprays, coyote urine, (and other predatory urines) and even noise blasters. The fact of the matter is, even if these methods were to work, most animals would simply get used to them in the end anyway. After all, they have evolved and stayed in existence for this long!

One thing that a lot of people have turned to in a bid to repel opossums is using lights. Technically, when you think about it, this method could actually work, simply because the creatures are nocturnal by nature, so any light source would simply encourage them to stay away, right? Well, this theory is actually wrong. These creatures are getting used to the daylight and scavenging for food at times of the day that they normally wouldn't - this is why you spot them every once in a while during daylight hours. Again, although this method may have had success for some, the chances of it working as a long term repellant is slight; it would appear that these creatures are becoming more and more used to human activity.

In reality, the only really "good" way to get rid of opossums, and indeed any other wild animal, is to call on a wildlife man to lend a hand. It's a tried and tested method for a reason!
