Opossums can be destructive and carry diseases, and they can also be unsightly as well as psychologically disturbing. The good news is that there are a few ways you can make sure opossums can’t get into your house. It’s nice to know how to recognize and deal with rodent infestations, but it’s even better to prevent these animals from getting inside from the beginning. Keep reading for a quick look at opossum prevention.

Opossums, rats, mice, and other wildlife tend to cause all kinds of trouble. Infestations can ruin your garden, damage belongings in your house, and even threaten your family with diseases. If you want to protect your house and family, take preventative measures to shut opossums out. One excellent way to do this is by installing a fence. You must make sure that the fence is tall enough that opossums can’t climb over them, and you might want to use electric wiring in addition. Plug up any holes or gaps around your house, and be sure to have any existing opossums removed.
