Arlington wildlife control tip of the month: Possums - odor issues: The possum is an animal that is much more well known for its habit of playing dead rather than the smell it leaves behind, but when you think about the imaginative causes and the sheer amount of scents this creature will leave on your home or yard, you will soon realize that it could rival that of the skunk any day of the week! A dead possum is a decomposing opossum, and this can only mean one thing - a smell that will quite literally burn your nostrils! The problem with these creatures is that they can very often go unnoticed for sometime within quite, unused areas of the home, and this is where they love to crawl up and die. When they start to decompose, especially with hotter weather, you will soon notice the stench and it is not one that you are going to forget in a hurry! Alongside the death stench, (this is not the technical term!) you will notice a vast and crazy array of other stenches. Just one of these will, of course, be the urine and poop that the creature will leave behind anywhere and anytime that it sees fit. This will quite clearly start to stink after a while, and when you combine this with the green foul smelling excrement that occurs when the creature is threatened or alarmed, as well as the scent marking that it does to mark its territory, you have a very smelly problem on your hands! Alongside the smell, the possum will bring with it many other problems including destroyed electrical wiring from all of the chewing, drywall damage from all of the clawing, and even scents left behind by other animals such as the skunk as territorial wars are started.
Reader mail feedback: Dave, Thanks for your helpful website about squirrels in the attic! I am in the process of hopefully ridding my mom's attic of squirrels in Arlington VA. (She does not want to hire a wildlife control expert unless absolutely necessary due to the cost, so I thought I'd give it a shot.) After a few false starts, I was able to capture 4 squirrels at the base of their main access tree and release them at a nice wooded park about 7 miles away. We also had the tree removed (it was too close to the house anyway), and we trimmed other nearby trees that were overhanging the house. Additionally, I have a light and a radio playing in the attic, and I also spread "shake away" fox urine granules up there to try to keep them away. At this point I no longer hear or see any squirrels in the attic and we are about to get the access hole patched, but I am concerned we may inadvertently trap some in the attic when we repair the hole. Here are a few questions that perhaps you can help with: 1) Is it likely there would be any baby squirrels in the attic at this time of the year? 2) Are the adult squirrels always outside during the day if its nice weather, so we can be reasonably sure we don't trap any inside during the repair in case I didn't catch them all? 3) How many squirrels might live together in the same 600 sq ft attic? Do they live together as a family? I think they've been there at least a year, maybe two. 4) Will any displaced squirrels try to chew their way back in after we patch the hole, and is there anything we can do about it? (in case I didn't catch all of them) Any insights you offer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Leslie p.s. i think they are eastern gray squirrels. One had a yellowish hue, especially on his/her chest, and was particularly large and chunky. 2 were gray and smallish (maybe young), and one was gray and large, but not as large as the yellow one.
