Possum Trapping Houston
Houston Possum Removal and Control in and around Houston Texas is a growing problem. The Opossum or Possum is considered a Marsupial, meaning they are a pouched animal. As a matter of fact they are the only pouched animal in North America. The closest relative of the opossum or possum is the Kangaroo. Possums are one of the most common pest animals found in Houston TX, Kingwood TX, The Woodlands TX, Spring TX, Tomball TX and Cypress TX. Some of the most common problems associated with possums are their close quarters to horses. Horses and Possums are not good for each other!
A horse can never eat hey that was contaminated with possum feces. The horse could contract a disease called Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis or EMP for short. This disease affects the central nervous system and is sometimes fatal to horses. Thats why most barn owners are always looking to control Opossum or Possum population. The cost associated with controlling the possum population is better than paying the large vet bills to keep your horses alive.
Houston TX Possums under the house
One of the most common calls we get in Houston Texas is for Possums under the house. The most common problem we find with this situation is the possums getting under your bathtub. That’s right, under your bath tub! The back of your bath tub is hollow, and a nice void is created between the bathtub and the floor. This is a wonderful place for a opossum to hide. When the plumber cuts a hole on the floor to run the drain lines, he usually makes the holes bigger than they should be. This makes it possible for the possum to gain access to this area! This problem should be corrected very quickly. Possums are very unclean and will defecate in the area and smell up everything very quickly!
