Rochester Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month: How to get opossums out from inside a wall

Other than the attic, under the shed or under the porch, opossums can also find their way into your walls. This is mostly common with baby opossums that go into walls and get stuck in there. Having an opossum in the wall can be annoying because of the incessant scratching that they do while trying to leave and go elsewhere. It’s even worse when they die in there because the smell from their rotting bodies will be a pain in the neck. Worse still, the rotting carcass will be a health hazard to anybody living within hat home.

Aside from the incessant scratching noises, opossums will leave a lot of their dropping behind and these will stink your house down. This foul smell is one of the ways in which you will know that there is an opossum in your walls. Their urine also smells bad and will stain the walls too.

Needless to mention opossums can hide in any wall in your house. It is even worse if there is a mother opossum and her babies in the walls as these babies can be in any wall. Getting these animals out from the wall can be such a daunting task. This is because there is no room to remove them easily and traps cannot fit in between the walls.

A viable option that you can use is to ensnare them while in that wall. This unfortunately is not anyone’s job but the professionals only. Even the process of ensnaring is hard and the professionals sometimes fail to do it successfully.

In case of such failure, the professionals will have to cut a hole through the wall and lure out the opossum. This they can do using food as bait. This goes on to further prove that only professionals can remove these annoying critters from in between walls.

As tempting as it would be to poison the animals to death while they are still in the wall, this can actually backfire on you as you would still need to take out the carcass. This may not be a situation that you’d want to find yourself in because these animals are safer to handle when they are alive rather than when they are dead for health reasons.

You can however try to lure the opossum out of the wall yourself and into a trap that you should set well in advance. Opossums are good climbers and they can go up and down the walls with ease. Setting a trap outside the wall with some food in it may just encourage them to scale the wall and get right into the trap after which it will be easier to dispose of them.

Because of the inaccessibility of the walls, you’d be best advised to leave the extraction of opossums from inside walls to the professionals. Once they have been removed, seal off all entry points through which they may re-enter your house in future.
