Pricing and costs of opossum removal and control in 2020
If you just have
opossums outside, or under a shed or deck, and you need them trapped in cages and taken away,
the cost may be $150 on up, depending on how many need to be trapped. This job will require
at least two service trips (trap setup and animal removal), plus relocation or euthanization.
If you have opossums in your attic, the total cost will probably run between $250 - $500 to
remove all the opossums and seal the entry holes shut. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, how
many opossums are in the attic, if you need cleanup, etc. For tips to do it yourself for FREE, read my how

Here are three articles that will help give you more information:

Guide: Why does wildlife cost what it does?
- Analysis of the wildlife control business, and prices.
Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Opossum control is highly specialized work,
with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and
cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't
work that way, every opossum job is different.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will
have spent money on licensing, liability
insurance, and a host of other business
expenses. You don't want to over-pay of course.
And most of all, you want someone who will do
this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong
the first time, you'll just end up paying more
later. You can't ignore wildlife problems,
because of the damage and health risks that
opossums cause. Invest in your home and property
by taking care of the opossum problem correctly.
Customer Email Regarding Opossum Problem:
David, I am in Ft. Worth Texas and have a
question. Last night my German Shepherd ran out
back door and grabbed a possum off tree trying
to escape and slammed to the ground. I ran out
and grabbed her, the possum had its mouth open
playing dead. I pulled dog back (she had no
injury) possum tried to go up tree to escape and
fell back to ground. Later went out and no
possum no blood. Also I have tons of new tunnels
all over property smaller than the ones this
possum made in my back yard last night. Question
is do I have a colony of them and is it possible
my dog got any nasty bugs from having this in
her mouth. She is up on all shots. Also how much
does it cost for possum removal services? Great
and informative site by the way...Thanks Kay
Opossums don't live in
colonies. They are largely solitary nomads,
wandering through. No disease from opossums to
dogs. For a removal price in Fort Worth, call
the guy on my directory and he can give you a
