Sharing Our Living Space with Wildlife
This gentle nomad poses no threat to humans.
- The opossum rarely stays in one place for more than a few nights and seldom
causes any serious problems.
- Instead of digging their own burrows they use abandoned burrows of other
animals. If you eliminate brush piles, dilapidated buildings and holes under
concrete slabs, you will eliminate opossum hotels.
- Leaving pet food and exposed trash outdoors at night is an open invitation to
dinner for opossums.
