Possum in Houston, TX

Possums grow and reproduce quickly once they have found shelter. What makes them most dangerous is their long claws and sharp teeth. They can terrify you and threaten your property if not removed right away. Our humane methods for removing opossums and possums in Houston are guaranteed to work the first time, every time!

Wildlife X Team Houston does not seek to destroy possums. We are actually sensitive toward them, even when they don't cooperate. Patience is key. If you focus your attention on chasing them away, they will grow angrier and possibly create a bigger problem. Houston possum control should be a methodical task, one that is best left to someone who is well trained and knowledgeable about defensive possum behavior.

What are the Differences Between a Possum and Opossum?

Possum and opossum trapping cannot be effective unless the species is properly identified. The most apparent difference between a possum and opossum starts with the name, which signifies where the 2 terms originated from: America or Australia. 

The American possum has pointy teeth and the Australian possum or opossum is said to have more appeal. No matter the physical identification, they both have the same builds and features, including:

  • Solitary, Nocturnal & Slow Moving Habits
  • Grey or Black Fur, Pink Feet & Tail, Pointed Nose
  • Omnivorous & Adaptable

Removing possums and opossums in Houston is not impossible. Even though they tend to avoid confrontation by playing dead, we completely understand their even-tempered personalities. In addition, due to the predators that seek them out, they don't usually live longer than 4 years.
