Opossum Removal in Myrtle Beach and Surrounding Areas
The Opossum is a house-cat-sized nocturnal animal which can grow to about 40 inches long, including the tail. They feed on nuts, fruits, bird eggs, insects, and carrion (dead animals). When frightened, the Opossum will “play dead,” often using the anal glands to produce a smell similar to rotting carrion. Opossums can be pests, as they root through garbage cans and other residential nooks to find food.
Mammals of all shapes and sizes can be found throughout every conceivable habitat here along the Grand Strand and Inland Areas swamps and farms, as well as oceans and shores. As we grow in human population, we encroach on these natural habitats, finding ourselves face-to-face with wildlife that can sometimes affect our happy lives.
