This is not related to OWS and mods can dump the thread real soon but I just discovered i have opposums under my front concrete porch. There's an opening where they get in and I saw 2 about 6-7 inches long not including the tail. What should I do?

I decided they can have the porch for the summer. I'll deal with them later.

You could always ask Obama to put them on the kill list.

I thought they were rats for a second and it freaked me out. I'll take care of it . Somebody close this thread!!

first tack it to the right forum and secondly ask yourself this question are they a problem? If your assesment is they are in fact a problem then get a have a heart trap. as far as what they eat their omnivorous they'll eat anything.

Get a live trap from your hardware store - do an online search for what they like to eat - put the food out it in the trap and place the trap by the porch opening.

That is of course if your area does not have a willing animal control dept.

They do. I should call them because it could be tricky to get them all and keep them out.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (34861) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Yeah you will want to block that opening right away too. Usual method of operation is to catch and release em. They might want to come back.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 2 years ago

Thanks. I have one for squrrels that might work. I'll find out what they like and get them one at a time. I want to resolve this quick.

Glad to see you care about not killing them.

Put up an entrance sign, and charge a dollar to see them. ;-)

I like to sit on my porch and I don't want them crawling between my legs. Don't want to hurt them either.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 2 years ago

I've been putting off patching up the porch but it's actually a big job. I'd like to get them out before I have it done.

its occupying your porch, it will probably be cleaner than the OWS folks had they occupied your porch.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 2 years ago

So? What's your point? If they start singing protest songs that might be a problem.

If they start singing protest songs, you'll be on your way to becoming a 1%er in no time. ;-)
