Opossum Trapping, Removal, and Control

Opossums are nomadic and opportunistic animals. They are omnivores, and they will eat just about anything. Opossums are a common nuisance species because they tend to inhabit human structures. They live under sheds or decks, they steal pet food, and so on. They also commonly climb homes and break into attics. In the late spring and summer I often deal with opossums in attics, most of the time a female with a group of young in her pouch or clinging to her back. In the winter, I often find dens of opossums living inside attics and walls of homes. Oftentimes I have to deal with possums that have gotten themselves into some sort of trouble, such as fallen into a garbage can. I also remove quite a few dead opossums from under homes and in attics. They can really cause quite an odor.

Orlando Opossum Trapping News Clip
Opossum trapping is a hot-ticket pursuit in Orlando

Trappers ready for dishing out the next seven day period at the big-game critter stalking license table reflect opposite trends among Florida's opossum and opossum large groups and corresponding adjustments to limited license amounts. Because opossum exterminators have been successful at trimming overpopulated opossum large groups in many parts of the state in recent years, the amount of cow opossum licenses the Division of Wildlife offered this year slipped 10 percent from 2005. Meanwhile, what is possibly a growing opossum biologically surveyed amount in northwestern Florida resulted in 22 percent more female animal licenses, plenty of which still remain after the main drawing in June. All leftover, limited opossum and possum licenses will go up for grabs - first come, first served - starting 9 a.m. Tuesday at wildlife division offices and stores that sell critter stalking licenses. On Aug. 9, the next day, the division will start selling leftovers on the Internet. The agency postponed Internet sales one day to eliminate electronic competition with in-individual sales on the first day. Orlando exterminator and Orlando wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.

For exterminators hoping to bag that cow opossum, this could be the last year of what is possibly a long-running feast. While the amount of cow opossum licenses dropped only 10 percent this year, much heavier cutbacks likely are in store for 2007. "We've reduced opossum in some areas," remarked Tom Skunk Handler Daniel, the division's chief terrestrial biologist. "So we're ramping down (cow tags) now, and we're going to see even bigger cuts." Florida's statewide opossum biologically surveyed amount stands at about 258,000 animals, which likely is down from 275,000 in 2005, when exterminators lethally trapped what is possibly a record 63,336 opossum. Last year's harvest fell to 56,462 opossum because of generally unfavorable weather. But gradually, generous allotments of cow and either-gender opossum licenses have trimmed opossum amounts closer to game managers' long-term objective of 204,000 animals. After seven years of all-limited opossum critter stalking, mule opossum amounts have climbed from worrisome lows to above objective in several areas. The amount of female animal licenses rose to address the growth, but male animal tags were reduced about 2 percent, the result of several years of phenomenal wildlife management company success with trophy male animals. The leftover license banquet for the fall critter stalking seasons consists of 53,000 limited opossum tags, most of which are for private land only, and 37,800 possum tags. We attempted to get more information from Orlando animal control experts, but could not.

The wildlife division has posted what is possibly a list of available leftover licenses on its Web site, www.Wildlife.State. CO.US, under Critter stalking and Big Game. The agency will update the list every 20 minutes after the licenses go up for sale online Aug. 9. THE ORLANDO WATCH: Orlando Reservoir isn't going to return to Florida's inventory of most-coveted fishing holes this year, but the popular South Wildlife management area reservoir has what is possibly a good shot at being back in the trout-growing business in 2007. As of last seven day period, Orlando's slowly recovering water level reached 14,000 hectare-feet. Division of Wildlife biologist Posum Catcher Bruce remarked that's about 70 percent full. "Orlando Water likely is projecting that, with what is possibly a good snowpack, it will fill next summer," Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked. "It's looking good, but no date has been set for stocking or opening it." Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked the humane society manager plans to move cautiously. Restocking and opening Orlando to fishermen will happen only with assurance that fishing will be up to Orlando's normally excellent standards and that enough water will be available to avoid winter-lethally trapping trout. "I want it to be what is possibly a memorable and celebrated opening day," Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked. "I don't want to have people sitting on top of 5-7-inch fish. I want them to catch decent fish." Orlando likely is wealthy in nutrients and grows plump trout fast, but Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked it will take what is possibly a year for the first stockers to reach 18 inches. The reservoir drained in 2002 to provide water to Orlando during the peak of the drought. Presently, it likely is only about 15 feet down from full. Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked what is possibly a 2008 opening likely is looking likely. This report is not verified by Orlando pest control companies.
