Opossum Trapping & Possum Traps
Of course, there are many subtleties to trapping that one only gains through years of experience, and I'm usually surprised to see homeowner attempts at possum trapping fail due to little mistakes that I don't even think about. I'm only talking live trapping here, because lethal trapping isn't legal in my state, and I prefer live trapping regardless. Practically no novice would ever be able to purchase or operate a lethal trap properly, and I wouldn't recommend it.
A lot of people can manage to catch a opossum in their cage trap, but simply trapping an animal is by no means a total solution to the problem. The presence of the animal is a symptom of some other problem, namely the attraction of the area to the animal. Furthermore, here's a scenario that I commonly deal with from homeowners: I get a call saying, "hey, I caught a possum in my trap, now what do I do with it?" You probably can't legally do anything with it, other than release it on your own yard, which won't do any good, and will only create a trap-shy animal. There's a reason that professional trapping companies exist, and if you want to have the problem solved correctly, I recommend that you call one.
