Humane Opossum Removal Services

Opossums are scavengers and the only marsupials found in the U.S. They visit homes in search of food sources and often raid garbage cans, dumpsters, and other containers. These creatures tear up yards by eating fruit from trees, grass and nuts.

These critters are nocturnal and will “play dead” when they feel endangered. They can grow as large as a house cat and can become aggressive if they feel threatened, or if cornered. Opossums have very sharp teeth and claws and carry diseases such as tuberculosis, along with parasites such as lice and fleas.

Call us today if you have oposoms on your premises and want to remove them. Our wildlife removal teams in Tennessee and South Carolina focus on humane possum removal. We are also available for emergency possum removal.

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

Matt at Alpha Wildlife is such a nice and professional guy. I always like to hire veteran owned companies and you can tell that he has that demeanor about him. He was able to help with the squirrels in our attic in Bartlett, TN. Great guy.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.
