Heavy animal noises coming from the ceiling?

Opossums enter attics for warmth and safety. Once it picks an attic as its home, it will stay there as long as it can. Opossums enter by climbing trees and gutters to get to the roof and then taking advantage of weak points in the roof, soffit, or eaves. In the attic, the animal will nest and nurture its litter. They create problems by disloding sensitive attic structures, keeping the homeowners awake, and leaving a large mess of droppings / feces.

A mother oposum with its babies. Just a few weeks older, these babies would leave the mother and scatter around the attic. Many would fall down wall spaces. This is the right age to catch
these animals and remove them all together.

Jon removes the mother by hand first... Grabbing a possum by the tail is the best way to remove these animals. With the tail in hand, the animal can no longer bite the trapper.
