River Otters, Lontra canadensis, are one of the Northwests most aggressive invaders.
When they enter a home, they do extensive damage to insulation, heating ducts, plumbing, and electrical wires.
They also bring their odors with them. Not only do Otters have a very strong musk that otters use to mark territory and attract mates, they also bring their marine based food into their living area which they leave strewn around to rot. There’s nothing quite like the smell of rotting fish and clams to really give your house an ambiance you’d rather avoid. That’s why you need to hire a professional Otter Removal service!
Otters are protected under federal law, and if trapped, must be relocated unless trapped during the regular fur trapping season. When relocated, Otters are capable of extensive travel, and since most waterfront communities in our area are closely connected by both land and water routes, an otter can easily make it back to its home range no matter where it is relocated to.
Because of that, Otter Removal and prevention is all about reinforcing the building so that they can’t get back in. Otters are strong. Stronger than any other structural infestation animal I deal with. They can rip through standard wire screens and tear through particle board. Thus, making a house secure against otters requires heavy duty reinforcing of all potential access points leading into your crawlspace.

I can also get your crawlspace cleaned, deodorized, and repaired through my Insulation, HVAC, and other partners.
