Why Trapping Doesn’t Work

  1. Opossum TrappingIt creates a vacuum effect, when one animal leaves another takes its place;
  2. Nursing animals are removed then the offspring die creating a larger problem many times;
  3. Studies have shown that relocated animals rarely survive more than two weeks. In unfamiliar territory, relocated animals are unable to successfully compete for food and shelter with the existing population of wildlife in that area. Within two weeks, the relocated animal usually dies of starvation or from injuries inflicted by other wildlife. Learn more at 911wildlife.com.
