The Opossum (Didelphis virginianus) is North Americas only native marsupial. Opossums are omnivorous they will eat vegetables from your garden, food scraps from your garbage, and pet food from your pet dishes. They will often take up residence in crawl spaces, attics, and under porches, decks, garages, sheds and outbuildings.
Opossums are relatively resistant to rabies; however, they can be infected with the disease. Opossums can carry Equine Protozoal Myloencephalitis (EPM) which is a major threat to horses.
Description of Opossum Damage in Virginia
Although opossums may be considered desirable as game animals, certain individuals may be a nuisance near homes where they may get into garbage, bird feeders, or pet food. They may also destroy poultry, game birds, and their nests. (Source: Prevention and Control of Wildlife Damage, 1994). They are also notorious for getting into crawlspaces of homes and dying.
