Opossum Control

Have opossums invaded your property? Opossums can be more than just a nuisance. In some cases, they can actually cause real damage to your landscaping and exterior. Opossums are known for their tendency to wreak havoc by digging up plants and getting into outdoor garbage cans. And whether you own a home or a business, the last thing you want is a long-term problem on your hands.

An untrained property owner should not confront an opossum. This animal is quite shy and inoffensive, but will often hiss and bear its teeth when threatened. They are occasional carriers of rabies and fleas, and the ticks they harbor can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. If you think you have an opossum problem, contact Trapper Joe's office for opossum removal, control and to prevent future opossum damage

Bird Control

Bird Exclusion, Preventative Maintenance, and Clean Up


Pigeons, starlings, sparrows, woodpeckers, and geese . Nice birds. But once they invade a building or an area, their nests and droppings create an unsightly nuisance. Birds may carry diseases which are capable of infecting humans, and bird droppings can promote soil conditions favoring development of such fungal diseases as histoplasmosis.

Woodpeckers peck at wood for many reasons, some of which include :

  • to signal to other woodpeckers
  • to feed on insects under the wood
  • to make a roost or nest

Woodpeckers often drill into dead dying trees. Once these tree's are removed do to safety reasons, the woodpecker may start drilling on your house.

Here is why: They are very territorial, and often return to old placed to drill. When the trees are no longer there, they may begin drilling on your home. Woodpeckers particularly like houses with cedar siding. But they also are know to drill on redwood siding and siding that has been painted brown.

​Drilling (or drumming) for nesting or roosting cavities creates large, deep holes in siding. Woodpeckers may excavate several different cavities before deciding which one to use. They often drill nests on buildings up high under ledges, usually in corners.

Male woodpeckers attract females and defend their territory by creating a loud, hollow-sounding noise, often by pecking on pipes. Both males and females drum, primarily in the spring. Such drumming may continue a few days to a month. This can occur on metal flashing, metal spouts, and television antennae, as well as wood and metal pipes.

When drilling creates rows of holes across the face of cedar siding, woodpeckers are feeding on leaf-cutting bees nesting in tunnels in the plywood. When cedar plywood siding is manufactured, the subsurface ply (crossband) is made from wood sheets which are not butted together. A tunnel is created when the cedar veneer is added. Bees gain entry to these tunnels

either at the edge of the sheet or through openings created when the plywood is grooved. Woodpeckers can hear and feel movement from bees in the tunnels, and peck through the cedar face to feed on them. On shingled siding, they most often drill through the thin end, just below the butt end of the overlapping shingle above. ​
