Safely Remove Opossum Activity From Your Aurora Property
Opossums are the only marsupials found in America. They can have up to two litters per year, at any time of the year, and will raise up to nine kits per litter. These unique animals are immune to snake bites and rabies and consume thousands of ticks per season by grooming themselves and their young.
Yet despite all these potential ecological benefits, opossums should not be welcome around your property. These wildlife animals are known carriers of several diseases, such as tuberculosis and leptospirosis. They can also spread bacteria, viruses, parasites, and even fungi throughout your property and destroy insulation and other materials to nest their kits. Engaging opossums alone may be dangerous and unsafe, so contacting the professionals at D&K Pest Control is the best first line of defense.

We understand how essential it is to restore your home to working order and do everything in our power to remove wildlife pests fast.
