I am NOT kidding....PLEASE...I really need suggestions that WORK...I live/own in a VERY OLD house..The cellar is the real old kind with spider webs hanging..=0( which you do NOT go into unless your going to check the oil tank or you blow a fuse...2 months ago I heard all this noise and screech's coming from the basement about 9:30 p.m. ~ I have a door in the living room that leads into the basement otherwise access is from outside/backyard..I opened the door in living room turned the lights on and started down the stairs VERY slowly..when I get to the bottom I look around 15 feet away are 3 extremely LARGE possums digging in the dirt (it's a dirt floor) I start yelling at them and making a lot of noise...they look up at me and continue to dig in the dirt...I had a 1/2 empty small bottle of water in my hand I threw it in their direction...they kept digging..=0( I picked up the plunger on the stairs threw that...they kept digging...finally I WENT UPSTAIRS..as they were NOT budging...and I was afraid of them they are BIGGGGGG and ugly looking..needless to say I started keeping the basement light on 24 hours a day thinking the light would be disturbing to them and they wouldn't come back...well I don't think they EVER left...I think they LIVE down there..I kept going down every couple of days..sometimes they would be there..sometimes not? Sometimes I would hear the screeches and run down with a big stick and they would be there and run behind a stack of very old (before I moved here) high stack of wooden boxes & crates..tonight I went down to check the oil tank..once I got down there I happen to look to my right and there was the biggest possum I have seen yet...it was so wide I am thinking it may be pregnant...I am petrified to say the least..I have no idea how to get rid of these things...I called the town when it first started they said it is my own responsibility and I would have to hire a private contractor that catches wild rodents...I called a few the price is very steep...I am a single working mom with 2 kids...I am not kidding when I say we are living check to check...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW I CAN GET RID OF THEM ON MY OWN PLEASE LET Kentucky KNOW...THANK YOU Kentucky ADVANCE.
Get live traps (maybe rental) put dog or cat food bait. if you can get enough traps one a piece you could get them all in one night possible. in my area animal control will pick them up and return the traps. they also loan traps if they aren't all in use. they are scary, but find out how they get in and fix the spot they will destroy anything they can.
Try to find how they are getting in and seal it up ! The exact same thing happened to up except it was raccoons and the mama had the babies . In our attic ! They would leave periodically and one day we trapped the out ! I was asleep I could hear them running and bumping all over the top of the ceiling ! Anyways , like I said find how they are getting in and seal it off . Then get some rat or big animal poisning and put it down there ! Wether it be on food or on it's own they are gonna' have to eat sometime and they will eventueally eat the poison . Just be sure to check every so often , that way you don't have some dead animals in your basement . Alas, if you don't want to kill them , then you should buy some oneway cages and put some food in there to lure them in . Then release them . But if you don't want them to come back then you must seal it up !
Honestly, you're going to have to call a contractor. They look like they aren't budging; the entrance needs to be not only barricaded but permanently sealed. I know this is unfortunate, but you also have to think about your two children. If an opossum gets into your house and it has rabies and bites one of your children, not only will you have to remove them but will have to deal with medical bills as well. Unless the house has sentimental value, I would consider selling it and moving into an apartment. No one wants to do that but the facility would have to be maintained by the landlord who would deal with these problems appropriately. If a child is old enough [no one ever wants to do this to their children] but maybe one could work and you could reimburse him/her at a later date (buy a movie, or something similar). Cut off all unnecessary expenses. The children (as well as yourself) should not be there with these creatures in your home just for your safety. I'm sure you know this and want to give your children all you can give - obviously because you are attempting to get rid of them for your safety. Look around, maybe a neighbor can help you eradicate these pests. Try setting mouse traps (it could work). I would also recommend googling for any solutions. I would put a lock on the door so your children could not enter this room by any means. I know it may be hard but try saving portions of your pay check to pay for this contractor. Also, I would look for more hours at work, and if you dine out, keep it fast food or make dinner at home. Sure, dinner at home may not be as exquisite, but food is food and quality time with your children is definitely an opportunity you shouldn't miss out on. I am sorry for your situation, and do hope you find a permanent solution. Goodluck.
