Is your home experiencing Possum damage? At EcoCare Pest Control, we specialize in safely removing and controlling Opossum infestations in the Portland and Vancouver area.
Opossums can cause serious issues in your Portland or Vancouver home! Opossums are known to rummage through garbage, make a mess of lawns and gardens, and destroy homes from the inside and out.
Opossums leave feces around your home and property, spread disease, attract fleas, and create a horrible smell. Once in your home they often nest, eventually dying in the crawl space and creating a gross smell and an air-quality emergency in your home.
Protect your home and family by taking care of any possum infestation immediately. EcoCare’s preventative and eco-friendly Opossum removal and control team is here to help.
Our Approach to Opossum Removal & Control
1. Property Inspection & Analysis
First, our certified Portland Opossum control team will thoroughly inspect the inside of your home, assessing any damage and looking for any unnoticed problems. Additionally, we’ll inspect your home’s exterior, searching for Possum access points like holes in your vent screens, siding, or foundation.
Once a diagnosis has been made, we’ll explain what we’ve found and design a control and prevention plan that will actually work.
If Opossums have made their way into your home, we’ll seal off every point of entry to stop their access. Our Opossum control team is extremely thorough – we’ll never leave anything to chance. If your home needs a large technical repair to stop the flow of Opossums, our partner construction company will perform the work.
3. Careful Opossum Extermination
Our Portland Possum control team utilizes a series of professional traps and safe capture methods to rid your home and property of pests. These targeted Opossum control methods are poison-free, extremely effective, and will keep your entire family safe (even your pets!)
Inspect. Exclude. Exterminate. Our experienced Portland and Vancouver exterminators make Possum removal safe and simple!

What attracts Opossums to my home?
Possums are drawn to residential homes because they provide a safe environment and stable temperature. They’re generally drawn by food and shelter, particularly pet food and garbage. Properties with lots of trees, unsecured garbage, open pet food, or animal feeders are in particular risk.
Can Opossums hurt my pets?
Yes! Opossums are known to play dead around humans to avoid confrontation, which may cause your pet to investigate and be bitten! While Opossums will generally be afraid of humans, they may feel more comfortable around a dog or cat, making them particularly vulnerable.
Do you do all your prevention and Possum damage repairs in-house?
Our EcoCare technicians perform almost all of our Opossum prevention and extermination work. When we need further expertise, we partner with our experienced sister construction company to ensure the job is done right. The one exception is electrical damage, which we’ll subcontract since it requires a special license and expertise.
