Do you have wildlife stealing your pet food, digging under your porch, and making a general mess of things in your yard? Known colloquially as “possums,” here in America, these marsupials are scientifically known as the Virginia opossum and are different from their possum cousins in Australia. Regardless of the technical term, opossums are notorious for all types of mischief and if they have taken up residence at your home, it can cause a real headache. At Superior Wildlife Services, we are Gainesville possum removal and wildlife control specialists and we are here to help. Possums are known for burrowing under porches and decks, sneaking into attics, and dying in inconvenient locations causing terrible odors. Possums are also attracted to food sources such as pet food or rodents. 

Scott and Sandra will come out to your home and determine where the possums have been hanging out and provide a plan to trap them and remove them permanently. We provide Gainesville possum removal, so we will not kill any animals on your property, but rather trap them, relocate them, and provide tips to keep them from reentering. If there are dead possums in your attic or under the porch though, we will dispose of them so you do not have to deal with that. You have worked hard to maintain your home, do not let possums cause unnecessary damage. 

Are you battling with opossums taking up residence in your attic or shed? Contact Scott and Sandra at Superior Wildlife Services today to schedule an appointment for Gainesville possum removal services. We are here to keep unwanted wildlife out of your yard.

Structural Damage

As invasive critters, possums seek shelter and food where they can find it. Attics and sheds are both likely places for possum entry.


We get a lot of questions regarding to the what, when, how, where, and why of the way we conduct business.
There are way too many to try and list them all, but we have compiled a list of the most common questions that
we hear on our day to day life out in the field and as well on the phones.

Hey, we don't claim to know everything. If we don't know the answer, we will find it for you or point you in theright direction to find it!

Do you handle Dogs and Cats?

We DO NOT handle dogs and cats. This is best left for your local animal control department which may be found in your phone book or on Google.

Do you resolve insect problems as well?

No, we only deal with wildlife animals and leave the insect problems to the experts of a pest control company. We may recommend one to you if you have an insect problem or we discover a problem during an assessment at your structure.

Do you remove dead animals?

Yes we do. It is one of the nastiest jobs we do in this line of work. We will remove any dead animal from inside, under or around a structure.

What is this going to cost me?

We are a private business and a service for hire. Every job is different, regardless if it is the same animal from structure to structure. In order to have a comprehensive scope of the project we must see the structure and surrounding area in person to know what we are dealing with. The majority of cost is due to difficulty of the job and the size of your structure and the amount of damage that has been done that we must repair and seal to prevent future wildlife problems.

What type of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, certified check, major credit cards (through Pay Pal), and money orders.

How long does it take to solve the problem?

Typically it will take 5-10 days to resolve your problem. There are of course situations that make jobs last longer. Size of the property, structure, weather, and access, and quantity of the animals are all factors into the length of how long a job may take.

Do I have to have an animal problem to have my home/business inspected and sealed?

Not at all! We highly recommend a home assessment to be done on any structure. Especially new home or business owners, people in close proximity to water, woods, commercial food establishments,  or areas being cleared for building. Wildlife is at its highest concentration in these areas. It will save you a lot of money in the long run to have a home animal proofed before you have a problem. If a neighbor has a bat problem, where do you think the bats may go when they are sealed out from their structure?

Can't I just use mothballs?

Sure. If you want to keep facing the problem over and over again. Mothballs are a temporary relief to your problem, at best. They will quickly dissipate and the smell will be non- threatening to the target animal. Most wildlife become accustomed to the smell and it does not affect them long term. You need a professional to assess your issue and resolve it as soon as possible before it costs you a lot more money. We have dealt with clients that put me off for months, only to call me back after they tried the "do it yourself" path. They did nothing and the animals had done more damage in that time, as well as now requiring more labor for us to remove their futile attempts at exclusion costing more money.

If I trap an animal will you pick it up?

Sure. We will pick up a captured animal that you have trapped providing it is not a domesticated animal. We do charge a fee for the Pick-up and removal. It will also be necessary for us to retain the trap, due to the chance of an animal escaping during a trap to cage transfer.

Is there any type of wildlife you will not deal with?

Alligators, bears, panthers, gopher tortoise and or any other Florida federally protected wildlife.

Each county has a state licensed trapper that will remove the alligator at no charge to you and can get it done quicker than we can.

Please contact the FL Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission if you have a nuisance alligator. Their website is and they can be reached at (863) 462-0015.


I found/have an injured animal, what do I do with it?

First and foremost, do not put yourself or other people at risk trying to handle an injured animal! This is a time when they are most likely to defend themselves to survive. Most birds are best left alone. They do not survive well in captivity. Most rehabilitators will only deal with predatory birds such as eagles, hawks, ospreys, and
