Lorain wildlife control tip of the month:
Hi David, I came across your Lorain animal control website while googling whether dogs might disturb otters.
I also have a blog that sometimes touches on pest control. I like your emphasis on humane
control. However, I did find a few Lorain animal control errors. Otters are not rodents. They are in the mustelidae
(weasel family) of the order Carnivora. It's also questionable whether they are omnivores.
Their diet is nearly 100% fish or crayfish (it can be 100% crayfish in some areas). It's true they are
opportunists, but that flexibility is probably nearly always meat. Wikipedia does say they consume fruit
on occasion. Take, for example, dogs. Most dogs nibble on grass from time to time--but most people and experts
would consider them carnivores. While I don't have Lorain pest control specific info about using odors or spices to deter otters, I
doubt they would work. I have seen research reports showing that things like coyote urine don't work for some pests.
While something like human urine might work for very wild otters, if otters are already habituated enough to humans to
become a pest, then already the otters are ignoring human Lorain pest control odors. I question whether trapping otters to relocate them is
humane, even if the animal is not harmed by the trap. You may be removing a mother with dependent pups, which then starve.
You may transport the otter to another place with established otters who will then attack and possibly kill the transported
animal. It's also of questionable ethics to Lorain wildlife removal dump your problem animal on people in another town--not that different from
dumping trash in the town park. If you are in the business of legally removing animals people consider pests, so be it.
But calling trap and transport "humane" is simply inaccurate. I'd prefer learning to live with Lorain wildlife removal otters...or removing what
attracts them. If otters come to eat the cute fish in your ornamental pond, well.. the otters are pretty cute too.
Hello David! Apparently, we have some Lorain animal trapping pests in the attic! We found these dropping, which seems to be more concentrated
in one area. The droppings also somewhat turned to dust when my husband stepped on a few.... I am not hearing much on the
way of noises. I try to listen, but we are usually out in the Lorain animal trapping daytime and sometimes I 'think' I hear some minor noise at night,
but not sure if it's just house noise or my imagination getting the best of me! I've tried quietly listening, then I hear nothing
late at night. Any ideas on what critter Lorain exterminator this may be? As a side note , we were getting bees (I think hornets and Yellow Jackets)
in the attic and there was dozens of dead ones near the windows, which my husband vacuumed up. Could they be inviting other pests?
Thanks for any help!! We live in Lorain exterminator Ohio, with plenty of Trees.
