Charleston wildlife control tip of the month: What eliminates possum scent? A strong smelling disinfectant or bleach is going to be one of the greatest tools that you could possibly have in the fight against the possum. OK, you would be forgiven for thinking that this would be because of the dirt and disease that this WILD animal can bring along with it, but in reality, there are other reasons as to why you would need a bottle of bleach. When you use bleach, you are effectively removing the scent of the animal. The smell of urine in an opossum-free space will just tract not only other possums, but also other wild animals such as raccoons, skunks, rats and mice; all of which you probably won't want to have in your home. With the small investment of a bottle of bleach, you are essentially getting rid of the scent that the possum leaves behind from glands that are situated on the anus, chest and chin, as well as the urine that the possum will leave behind, leaving the space animal-scent free. The possum is a territorial animal, hence the reason he or she will leave the scent behind to prevent other possums and wild animals from moving into their "patch". This basically means that when you remove the scent with a strong bleach, not only are you preventing other possums and animals from moving in, but you could be effectively encouraging the creature to move out of your home, should you have struggled to remove it, by confusing it into thinking that it no longer lives there. This isn't a proven theory but it has been shown to work in some cases.
Reader mail feedback: We live in the country in Charleston SC. For the past 5 months we have had two squirrels (now a litter & another on the way) When I first heard them enter (up roof high behind our bedroom wall) they stayed off and on in that one area until the female stayed on the nest for weeks. I could hear her calling the male then would hear him enter from a lower different area in our home. Problem mainly is my 81 yr. old husband who has chosen to not believe they are there at all, since I am the main one to hear them coming & going for months. All he has ever heard were creaking sounds when they would pass over certain areas to go in our out. He believes those sounds are our house settling even though it is only 27 years old. He said he won't do a thing about it until he actually sees one. I did hear another squirrel trying to come into the entry place below because of the very loud fighting that my husband didn't hear. He wasn't home at the time unfortunately. I also have heard chattering in the original nesting place but since then they moved farther away due to my banging on the wall (bad idea) Now they are who knows where but still hear them. They positively are still behind our house walls between the outside and inside walls now where all the insulation is located. We have oak trees and squirrels all over the place out here. I had contacted a friend who brought a trap months ago but we only caught three so far plus a skunk and two raccoons. I put in good bait, extra crunchy peanut butter and black oil sunflower seeds, but the birds end up eating most all of it. I haven't called the Humane Society yet but what could they do since they can't be seen? Living in a small town doesn't help either since the professionals live 75 miles away in St. Louis. I already checked it out. Other then praying, what would you do in a case like this? Thank you for reading this.
Hi Wildlife Removal USA, I have read through your website and feel like I am prepared to evict my squirrels. I just wanted to run my plan by you to see if there was anything I was missing. It is March 25th now. I was going to wait until mid-May to make sure that if there had been any baby nests they were old enough to evict. :) I have a one-way door to let them leave but won't allow them back in. I know where they have chewed into my home and plan on fastening the "trap" over their door. Should I leave anything outside of the door to encourage them out? Birdseed, peanut butter etc..? After they have evacuated I plan on repairing the hole and adding some hot pepper oil to the wood work to discourage any chewing there (or anywhere else). I have a respirator so I plan on getting in the attic to double check any nests. Is there anything else I need to do? Thanks so much for your information. I don't want to kill the squirrels, I just don't want to live with them. Thanks again!
