Richmond wildlife control tip of the month: Sick opossum symptoms: If you have found an opossum that looks like it might be sick or injured, it is always wise to consult a wildlife control professional, rather than to just let it go into the wild. For a start, the creature could die if left unattended; something you most definitely do not want if it happens to making a nest in your home, and secondly, it could attract other animals that are classed as prey to this animal - neither scenario are particularly pleasant. There are a number of problems that you are likely to face with orphaned or sick opossums, from dehydration to hypothermia, MBD or metabolic bone disease, (this is very common in people that have chosen to raise an opossum as an orphan into a pet) and even cannibalism, although this is very rare. If you have chosen to raise an orphaned opossum as a pet, and it shows signs of frog-like walking, broken bones, deformities in its appearance or an inability to grip anything, there is a good chance that it has suffered at the hands of a poor diet and therefore has MBD. An opossum that has chosen to dine on the flesh of another opossum could be suffering again, from an inadequate diet, stress, overcrowding or other sicknesses or diseases. This is not something that the opossum will usually indulge in. Diarrhea with your opossum is a sign of many problems usually, and you will find that feeding the creature cow's milk will often bring along this symptom, as well as parasites, or spoiled formula. You may often find that bloating accompanies this, and this is a sign that it has been fed too often and too much, and it could even have something more serious such as a punctured bladder. Taking in an orphaned opossum is a difficult task, and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. Specific dietary needs must be met, as well as good care and attention, and if you are not willing to learn about this, you are not going to make a good candidate for an opossum mother.
Reader mail feedback: I came across your website and thought you might be able to help me with my squirrel problem. I bought my home last April. I started hearing noises in the attic come September/October and did not cease after that. I thought, at first that it was a raccoon, b/c it was so loud, but upon further investigation we found it to be a squirrel. Well, we were unable to get the hole patched since it is in a difficult spot to reach from the inside and the outside. Well, needless to say, it had babies. I put a trap in the attic and baited it with acorns and peanut butter, to no avail. We just kind of dealt with it since I did not want to hurt the animals and knew they would leave soon enough. Throughout the summer, I am guessing they did leave but occasionally I would hear scampering of feet in the attic, I am guessing storing acorns up there for this winter. I was unable to get anyone to help me close the hole up this summer. So lately, I have been hearing it again up in the attic but this time, much louder. It is to the point that I am unable to sleep in my bedroom at night b/c it never stops!! So, when I head downstairs to get away from the noise, I noticed that it seemed louder down there than in my room now. It was between the 1st and 2nd floors but I cannot pinpoint where. I am guessing that it got into my ductwork somehow. So I had a friend come over and look around and since we had not heard it in about 3 hours or so, we closed the hole (with silicone and wire mesh). Low and behold, all night we hear it again. It sounds like scratching and maybe even gnawing, I am not sure. But I know it gets out b/c I still hear it running around sometimes too. The squirrels have gnawed some wires and I am getting nervous about the damage they are doing to my home now. So, I guess my question to you is, Is there anything I can do to get this creature out of my house before it dies and starts to smell it up? I didn't want to hurt it before but now, I am just exhausted and tired of being awakened every night to these sounds and afraid one day I am going to come home to a burned down house from them chewing the wires. I looked on your website for a good squirrel removal company but my area is grayed out. I am in Richmond VA. Any help you provide me would be greatly appreciated.
