Opossums, which are usually timid and docile animals, can make nest in your home. Opossums in the attic in NJ are a frequent occurrence since the space allows them to be removed from predators. When an opossum gets into your home it is usually because the female is looking to give birth. An opossum can give birth to a liter as large as 20. These baby possums are as small as honeybees and live inside the mother's pouch until they are old enough to climb onto the mother's back and eventually move around on its own. Unfortunately, it is common for half the liter to die before being old enough to leave the pouch. For this reason it is important to immediately remove opossums from your home as soon as you realize that there are opossums in your attic. A group of dead possums will not only create a terrible stench but also allow your home to become susceptible to disease.
