Opossums are the rodents that are commonly known as the large rats because of their body structures that resemble that of rats. Opossums are also known as the possums and are found in most of the regions of the world with about 100 different species. Opossums are mostly disliked by most people because of various reasons, many people feel frightened by the way opossums see, another reason to dislike them would be their littering all around the place where they are present. They will spread garbage all over in search of food, they would eat your pets in order to satisfy their hunger, they will spread various pests' diseases that could be dangerous, they could cause possible damages to your property or other things and most importantly they would make your place so messy by discharging their feces everywhere.
In order to stay away from all these problems, the extermination or removal of opossums from your place is very important. Although there are many ways to exterminate them but it could be difficult for you to do it yourself because opossums can attack humans leaving very harmful subsequences when threatened. So, it is recommended to call the professional exterminator to do so.
Many people use poisons such as rat killing medicines or pest control sprays to exterminate but it is not an effective way and should not be followed for several reasons; it would take a very long time to get rid of opossum problems and it would be very dreadful manner if killing the possum. These poisons are specifically made for rats or mice or insects that's why they kill them in maximum three to four days but they will not work effectively on large animals and will take more than 9-10 days to show their final result, moreover, these poisons will damage the internal system of the opossums that will make the death extremely painful for them.
Other than killing them with poison there are many other ways of their extermination such as catching them with traps; traps such a keeping cats or dogs at your house, or using several opossums repellent sprays, using sound deterrents, and if all these measures result out to be ineffective so the last method would be to kill them but again avoid killing with the use of poison, rather, kill them with animal killing guns or some poisons that are specifically made for killing the opossums or large animals like it.
As soon as you encounter the presence of opossums at your place, their removal or extermination would be your first priority because along with causing several damages, Opossums could also be responsible for spreading various diseases such as murine typhus, leptospirosis, and tularemia, etc. There are many professional organizations that are rendering their services as the opossums' exterminators. It is recommended to approach those professionals to solve opossum problems. It should be made sure to exterminate them without using the rat killing poisons or pest sprays and other effective ways mentioned above should be followed.
