Otter Removal and Control

How Do I Get Rid of Otters in Louisiana?

Otters are one of the most beloved of semi-aquatic mammals, but are often mistaken for beavers. Otters can be found in many different types of climates all over the world as long as there is water for them to swim and hunt in. Due to recent findings in fossil records, it is now known that otters have been a successful species on this planet for more than 30 million years. However, even though the otter is a resilient little creature, certain populations of them are becoming endangered due to pollution of smaller bodies of water and destruction of natural forest land where they make their homes. This makes Otter Removal a very touchy subject.

Otter removal can be challenging, especially because of how agile and adept they are at maneuvering through the water. No matter the nuisance animal, people are determined to try chemical and holistic remedies to their wildlife problems. Otter control stems from pepper-based soil additives to Listerine bombs. Yes, Listerine bombs. The theory behind these is that the potent aroma and flavor will prevent otters from eating certain vegetation. It sounds good, right? Well, if the source of food for otters wasn’t primarily found in the water, maybe Listerine would stand a chance. In other words, don’t waste your time. On par with other semiaquatic species, poisoning is not recommended, and there is no approved poison for otters.

Reasons for Otter Removal Services?

The presence of river otters around or in a fish hatchery or fish culture facility is a good indication that a damage problem is imminent. Otter scats or toilets that contain scales, exoskeletons, and other body parts of the species being produced is additional evidence that damage is ongoing. Often the damage involves learned feeding behavior by one or a family of otters.

What Are The Typical Otter Habitats?

River otters seem to prefer fresh water, and can be in rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, and swamps. Otters live in burrows on the bank of the water body, often under the roots of a tree. They may dig their own burrow, or remodel the burrow of a beaver. They normally feed on animals such as crayfish and fish. If you have a fish pond an otter may find it.
