Did you know opossums, America's only marsupial, is one of the major contributors to keeping tick numbers down? It's true—opossums are often referred to as nature's garbage disposal due to their affinity for eating mostly anything. It is for this reason that we don't recommend interacting with them; opossums are quite unhygienic. Most San Antonio residents don't want these lumbering creatures on their property or nesting under their deck (similar to a raccoon).

Why Do I Have Opossums At My House?
While opposums do provide many benefits to the ecosystem, one side affect of being "nature's garbage disposal" is that they will eat just about anything you're willing to leave out for them, including compost piles, the contents of open garbage cans, and pet food.
Common Opossum Problems

- Opossums in the attic
