Opossums generally don’t dig their own dens. They live in dens left by other animals, or inside of hollow spaces beneath stoops, decks, sheds, or stairs. When an opossum makes its den under your stoop, the den is stinky, and the opossum can spread fleas to your pet.

Landmark Pest Management helps homeowners by humanely removing opossums and repairing the damage they leave behind.

  • Humanely remove opossums from under decks, stoops, stairs, and sheds
  • Eliminate unpleasant odors and fleas by removing opossums from under your house
  • Install barriers to prevent opossums from coming back
  • Deliver peace of mind

Opossums have their place in nature, not under your house.

What Happens When There’s an Opossum Under My House?

Opossums are docile and slow moving, and they are not aggressive toward dogs. However, opossums can inflict a dangerous defensive bite if your dog attacks an opossum. Opossums also carry fleas, and their burrows attract flies and other insects. Having an opossum under your house can be a smelly nuisance.
