Otter Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Otter problems safely and efficiently
Otters are friendly, semi-aquatic animals that feed heavily on fish, shellfish, and sometimes even waterfowl. Although otters are not known to bother humans directly, their fish hunting activities can be problematic to water areas that humans frolic and the surrounding infrastructures, making otter control and removal necessary. Their hunting activities on water and land can result in significant financial losses for fish farms and other businesses and should be handled quickly, safely, and effectively.
Allow Trutech’s otter control services professionals to carefully handle the situation in the most humane and environmentally sound manner. Otters are not dangerous to people except for when they become defensive. However, they are also capable of spreading disease, making them dangerous if contacted. Because otters are legally protected, trapping and removing them yourself can result in many adverse legal consequences. Not to mention, you could catch transmittable diseases, even if the animal is already deceased. By letting the professionals at Trutech handle all of your otter removal needs, you can ensure a humane, safe, and diligent treatment of these creatures without it weighing heavy on your heart or having to lift a finger.

River otters mostly feed on fish and shellfish, but they also make occasional meals out of waterfowl. Sea otters exclusively eat fish and shellfish and are actually considered a keystone species, as they moderate sea urchin populations. Otters have hands capable of grasping objects, which are useful for cracking open shellfish against rocks.
Favored otter habitats include fresh inland waters and costal sea shores. North American river otters prefer to live in fresh water systems with plentiful food sources. Sea otters are only found in the Pacific Sea.
