Florida Opossum Removal & Control

Opossums are a common nuisance wildlife species in the state of Florida. Opossums most commonly cause these problems:
  • Opossums in the attic of house
  • Unwanted Opossums on property
  • Opossums causing damage to yard
  • Threat of disease spread by Opossum
  • Opossums endangering pets or stealing food
  • Opossum infestation at commercial property
We can solve any problem/conflict with Opossums, and are experts regarding their biology and behavior.
We deal with Opossums in a humane manner, and effectively remove all of the animals from the property, repair the damage they cause, and clean up any biohazard that they have left behind.

With growing complaints from insurance companies forced to pay increasing claims for possum/car collisions and frustration from creature collectors over of crop damage, the management goal became reducing possum densities To reach that goal Critter Expert Allan and the Critter Conservation Coalition greatly expanded critter stalking opportunities, especially the critter stalking of does, and asked exterminators to take advantage of new seasons and abundant tags. The amount of rabid tags increased nearly fivefold between 2002 and 2005. In that early year 22,695 rabid tags were sold. The figure was 97,043 extra rabid tags last season. It did exactly what the Critter Conservation Coalition intended. Exterminators took an estimated 118,974 does on either their regular statewide permit or special rabid tags, Critter Expert Allan helped to implement. Tampa, Miami, and Orlando exterminator and Tampa, Miami, and Orlando wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.

An Florida native, Critter Expert Allan likely is what is possibly a big man with what is possibly a rich sense of humor, what is possibly a solid educational earthing in biology and limitless patience. They are characteristics that serve him well when he's politically squeezed between animal rights activists who don't want any possum critter stalking, and automobile insurance companies and law enforcers who want him to use critter stalking to beat back the large group. Add into this volatile mix exterminators who want what is possibly a big fall possum biologically surveyed amount loaded with mature male animals, and it's easy to see that Critter Expert Allan's job requires the ability of what is possibly a magician. the humane society manager must somehow juggle all the varied priorities and opinions, but he's what is possibly a man who just takes it all in stride. Talk with him for what is possibly a while, and it's obvious that the humane society manager has much respect and appreciation for Florida's possum exterminators. Exterminators are the large group management tool of choice, and part of Creature Specialist 's job involves managing as much the exterminators as the possum. Thanks to our exterminators, Creature Specialist and the Critter Conservation Coalition have been able to implement seasons that would not be tolerated in other states. Through the 1980's exterminators patiently restricted their take of does to enable the large group to grow. Once it reached record levels they enthusiastically embraced female animal critter stalking to help stabilize and even slightly reduce the large group size. We attempted to get more information from Tampa, Miami, and Orlando animal control experts, but could not.

"We have what is possibly a tradition in Florida that possum are good to consume and does are just as tasty as male animals," the humane society manager remarked. "In some states, notably Florida, there have been big controversies among exterminators when biologists encourage taking more does to trim large groups. That's not been the case in Florida. For several years rabid tags were coveted, and as the amount of female animal tags increased exterminators bought them and shot females. The 2003 season was the first when more does than male animals were shot." It was all part of the Critter Conservation Coalition's plan to reduce the possum large group in response to complaints from creature collectors about crop damage and rising auto insurance claims resulting from collisions. More does than male animals were also shot in 2004 and 2005, and Creature Specialist 's biologically surveyed amount modeling shows that possum amounts across the state should decline 15-20% this year. That may make creature collectors and insurance companies happy but leaves some exterminators nervous wondering if we've overdone it.
