Opossum surpriseCourtesy aaanimalcontrol.com
This car owner heard a scratching noise coming from the hood of her car—when it wasn’t running. When she lifted the hood, she came face-to-face with this opossum. She called David Seerveld, a wildlife removal expert at AAAnimal Control. “It chose to assume a defensive position rather than play dead, and it bared its teeth and stood still,” says Seerveld. That’s when he took the photo. After using a snare pole to noose the opossum, he placed it in a cage and relocated it to a nature preserve. Find out how to keep your home—and car?—pest-free.

A client heard noises coming from the fireplace one night and opened the damper to check it out. Imagine the surprise when bats flew out and into the living room! Apparently, they made the chimney their home. Although bats eat up to 1,200 flying insects an hour, you wouldn’t want them inside your house. Seerveld safely captured and released the unharmed bats outside. (If you think this is bad, wait till you see these 34 plumping nightmares.)
