Portland Oregon Nutria Removal, Beaver Removal & Otter Removal
The nutriaexhibits a whole host of problematic behaviors towards humans and their pets.
They often destroy pond/creek/riverbanks with their tunnels and burrows too. Due to nutria's 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 nutria
trapping resource. Unfortunately, nutria reproduce all year long. A small population can turn disastrous in no time!
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.
Nutria trapping and nutria removal are best handled by trained and experienced professionals.
Attempts atnutria removal by homeowners is against state law in both Oregon and Washington, meaning the nutria trapping in and of
itself can result in a class a misdemeanor, not to mention nutria transport and nutria relocation which are each another class a
misdemeanor. ABL Wildlife is fully licensed and insured, we can trap nutria legally and humanely.
Nutria can potentially carry numerous diseases including leptospirosis, tuberculosis, and
septicemia as well as playing host to parasites like ticks, lice, and fleas. Nutria are also territorial, so if you cross paths with
one at the wrong time you could easily sustain a bite wound.
How do you know if you need nutria removal services? Do you potentially 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. Overtime nutria will decimate the banks of waterways leading to a damaged habitat for other wildlife. Nutria
are non-native, due to this, their populations must be controlled artificially as they were imported here. ABL Wildlife specializes
in both commercial and residential nutria control programs!
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
- Oval-shaped feces
But here are a few more specific indicators of a need for our nutria removal and trapping services:
- Holes dug underneath foundation
- Open space underneath sheds, outbuildings

Nutria may appear 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 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!
