Otters are very common in Florida and are, in fact, a native animal to the state. It is found everywhere in the United States except in dry regions such as deserts. They also aren’t found in the Florida Keys. Otters live where there is a body of water close to them such as rivers, swamps, lakes, ponds, and more. They don’t mind being in freshwater, brackish or slightly salty habitats. And so if there’s a body of water close to your home, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find an otter there. In this case, call for otter removal assistance.
While otters are clever, and often cute creatures, they can pose a threat to your pond or nearby water source. Ultimately, otters will eat any fish and non-invasive species native to your pond, hatchery, or aquaculture. This can be extremely frustrating and can cause damage to the ecosystem. Evidence of otters can easily be spotted through their scat or uneaten fish parts scattered about in shallow parts of the water.
Animal Wildlife Trappers offers otter removal services for property owners. It is important for you to know that this is a job that must be done by experts. There are written accounts of otters attacking humans when they feel threatened. While they may sometimes seem cute or even harmless, it is never ideal to allow them lingering around your property.
Otter Removal for Your Safety
While they are mainly found in areas close to bodies of water, otters can be found living under tree roots, in between rocks, and in abandoned structures. They may also choose to live in burrows close to the banks of water bodies. They primarily feed on fish. However, otters would eat whatever’s easiest for them to access. They may also feed on rodents, frogs, crabs, oysters, insects, birds, mollusks, and other invertebrates found in water.
For your safety, otter removal is highly recommended. It is always possible for them to harm you or your pets. They are also known to cause damage to one’s property. Allowing them to stay within your property may not only be a risk to you and your family’s safety but to neighbors and passers-by as well.
