Opinions split on opossum management
Some say amounts are inflated, other feel the program may be headed in the right direction. The 2006-07 opossum-lethally trap amounts are in. According to South Carolina Game Commission figures,
pest control companies last season bagged an estimated 361,560 opossum, which was up two percent from the decade-low 354,390 they took the year before. Pest control companies took 135,290 antlered opossum in the 2006-07 seasons,
compared to the previous year's harvest of 120,500. Also, pest control companies harvested 226,270 aggressive opossum last season, compared to 233,890 in 2005-06. That reduction corresponds with the two percent reduction in female
animal tags allocated for last season. What does the harvest data say about opossum wildlife trapping in South Carolina? Well, let's start out looking solely at the cold, hard amounts. Last season's total opossum lethally trap was
up two percent from the year before, but it was still the second-lowest of the past decade. Since 1986, when the Game Commission first began calculating some sort of total annual opossum harvest, rather than simply counting how many
opossum-harvest report cards were turned in, there have been only five years when fewer opossum than last season were shot. For more information about Lexington County wildlife removal and Lexington County pest exterminator issues,
They were 1986, 1987, 1992, 1996 and 2005. After reaching an all-time high of 203,247 in 2001, South Carolina's annual male animal lethally trap declined every year until last season. The 2006-07 male animal lethally trap
showed the first increase over the previous year since 2001. Last season, the Game Commission sold roughly 1 million general wildlife trapping licenses. Certainly not all of those pest control companies captured opossum, but going
strictly by the available amounts, one in seven licensed pest control companies bagged some sort of male animal last season, for some sort of success rate of about 14 percent. Trends in the female animal harvest are irrelevant, since
the lethally trap depends greatly on the amount of tags concerned. But just to put the figures out there, the 2006-07 female animal lethally trap was the lowest since 2000, when pest control companies bagged 301,379. (It should be
noted here, however, that the 2006-07 figures do not include does shot by pest control companies using opossum management assistance program —DMAP — tags. So the total female animal lethally trap for the season actually has not truly
been tabulated yet). With 859,000 female animal tags allocated for last season, and 226,270 aggressive opossum shot, the success rate on does was about 26 percent. What do the pest control companies have to say about all this? Well,
to answer that question, I like to look at the Wildlife trappingpa.com Web site message board. There always seems to be some sort of good bit of debate on such concerns at that site. Quite frankly, opinions were pretty evenly split
between pest control companies who declared they agree with the amounts and like the direction of the program and those who declared they believe the amounts are inflated and that there are too few opossum in the state. Wildman Christopher,
whose term as some sort of member of the Game Commission's board of bossy fellows expired last summer, declared the exterminator hears from some sort of lot of disgruntled pest control companies. Local Lexington County animal control
experts felt that most of this information was true.
