Portland Nutria Removal, Beaver Removal & Otter Removal

Nutria are an "invasive" species in Oregon. What that means is Nutria are non-native to Oregon. Nutria exhibit a whole host of problematic behaviors towards humans and their pets. They often destroy pond/creek/river banks with their tunnels and burrows too. Due to their overall aggressive nature, it is important to avoid physical encounters with this wildlife species. That's why we're here! We are your nutria removal and trapping resource. Unfortunately, nutria reproduce all year long. A small population can turn disastrous in no time!

Nutria Removal

ABL Wildlife has years of experience providing humane, ethical, and effective wildlife solutions. We'll work to remove wildlife on the spot, set up humane live capture devices, or construct an eviction system. Our goal is to make your home and property safe for you, your family, and your pets.

Wildlife trapping and wildlife removal is best handled by trained and experienced professionals. Attempts at wildlife control or nutria removal by homeowners is not only against state law in both Oregon and Washington, but it can also result in the transmission of diseases or injury to person and property.

Nutria can potentially carry numerous diseases including leptospirosis, tuberculosis, and septicemia as well as playing host to parasites like ticks, lice, and fleas.

How do you know if you need our nutria removal services? Might you have nutria in your pond, yard, or crawlspace? It can take a while to discover a nutria problem due to their tendencies to den on the banks of ponds, streams, rivers, etc.

Common Portland Nutria issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Holes dug underneath outbuildings
  • Burrows in Pond or Creek Banks
  • Property Damage i.e. outbuildings
  • Garden and Lawn Destruction

But here are a few more specific indicators of a need for our nutria removal and trapping services:

  1. Holes dug underneath foundation
  2. Open space underneath sheds, outbuildings
  3. Trails paved with feces through lawn, blackberries, or other vegetation
  4. Produce consumption in gardens
  5. Beaver-like animal swimming nearby or grazing on lawn

Nutria may seem like a Beaver at first glance, which is why it's always important to look at the tail whenever possible. A Nutria possesses a rat-like tail while a Beaver has a paddle-like tail, we have wildlife control solutions for both!

North America Beaver Removal

North American Beaver Rermoval

Beaver can cause thousands of dollars in damage once they've established themselves. Similar to Nutria they can den on banks of ponds, streams, rivers etc. However, their preferred housing situation is a dam. When a beaver dams up a major waterway or spillway they can cause devastating flooding for the property owner. Beaver trapping and removal is a complex process due to their incredibly intelligent nature, leave it to the professionals, or you could end up sending the beaver to "How to avoid trapping" school!

Another key sign that you are a candidate for our beaver trapping and removal services is the gnawing on and removal of trees and shrubs. They utilize these for both food and housing material as they establish themselves.

Here are a few more specific indicators of a potential need for beaver trapping:

  1. Muddy "slides" on banks leading into the water
  2. Stumps gnawed into a point
  3. Vegetation floating in water or clogging culverts
  4. Mounds of sticks- often a dam
  5. Nocturnal activity in water

Here at ABL Wildlife we assess the entire area before performing any kind of beaver trapping or beaver removal program. Every Beaver infestation is unique which is another reason why we always require an onsite inspection to assess pricing and plan.
