Kansas and Oklahoma Opossum Control:
The Virginia opossum, also called possum is our only native marsupial in North America. The opossum is nocturnal and uses its keen sense of smell to locate food. It is omnivorous and eats just about anything, including a lot of different plants and animals like fruits, insects, and other small animals. Sometimes, it eats garbage and carrion.
The possum female may have as many as 25 babies, but she usually will have between seven to eight. The reason they have so many babies is to insure that some of them survive. Like most marsupials, opossums are very small when they are born – about the size of a navy bean.
The Virginia opossum can be found in most of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains and on the West Coast. It is also found in Mexico, Central America and in British Columbia, Canada.
For those with experience with the opossum they like to show off their big row of teeth to ward off potential predators or when attacked play possum (dead and emit a foul smell as if they were a dead carcass). The opossum is not a frequent invaders of homes but it does happen and occasionally a opossum can be caught in a attic or stuck in a vent somewhere including even a chimney with a faulty or missing chimney cap.
