Opossum and rats?
Lots of noise coming from the basement ceiling! Every day I find insulation that has fallen down from rafters. From the pictures I have attached, I suspect opossum and rat. I have set a Have-a-Heart trap using canned dog food as bait, hoping I can trap the opossum, as I don't want to kill it. I'll deal with the rats if and when I trap the opossum. Can you tell me what type of wild creatures I have by the attached pictures?
